2014 NFL Draft: Cowboys Look At Manziel, Finally Select Martin
Just when it looked as if Johnny Football would come off of the board, the Cowboys did the smart thing by selecting major need by drafting OT Zack Martin out of Notre Dame. The Cowboys have been struggling at Guard, and Martin will shift inside to play there, as he could play any position on the line, including center. Martin was a major need pick, and Jerry Jones finally did something bright here by not going with a pick of the whim here. Everyone would have loved Manziel here right now, but everyone will love Martin ten years from now, long after Manziel becomes a distant memory. I'm very happy with what the Cowboys did here.
