We have reached the 16th selection in the 2014 Big Blue View Community Mock Draft, and it's an out-of-the-box move. As GM of the Dallas Cowboys, 'pataroons' has selected Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel.

'pataroons' explains:

If Manziel is available at this point, I believe Jerrah gets his pick to the podium faster than his finger to his nose. See what I did there? 'Pick'? 'Nose'? Ha!

Johnny Footb... I mean Johnny Manziel is a talented football player at the NFL's most important position. He also has a media obsession not seen since Tim Tebow. To pair that with 'America's Team' (I just puked in my mouth a little bit) is a dream scenario for the NFL, for the Cowboys, and for 'sports media'- you know who I'm talking about. Further, it is an absolute nightmare scenario for me.

The Cowboys have many needs. Their defense is going to be terrible. They only have one scary skill player on offense. However, as I've learned first hand, the risks of choking only increase with age and Romo is not getting any younger.

Valentine's View

I'm literally stunned by this selection. I don't understand it, and I don't see how this helps the defenseless Cowboys at all. It creates some headlines, but it doesn't help their woeful defense. All it really does is create another unnecessary Dallas distraction. Which, I suppose, is why it could actually happen.

Have at it, Giants' fans!
