While a great deal of the population still believes that Johnny Manziel is a true target of the Dallas Cowboys, many others are curious about the more likely possibility: Dallas will consider drafting a quarterback project in the late rounds.  Although the recent signing of Caleb Hannie would seem to quell the idea of picking up another signal caller, keep in mind that it is not guaranteed he, Orton, or even the rookie they may select will make it out of training camp.  So, with seven picks n rounds 5 – 7, expect the Cowboys to, as Nick Eatman puts it, get an early on jump on the rest of the league in the undrafted Free Agent rookie race.  Without further adieu, here are five late-round possibilities that could prove to be the next Tony Romeo (as he, of course, was an undrafted Free Agent signing).

    The next Romo? Why would anyone look for that? An uncanny ability to find a way to lose regardless of circumstance.

      You took my intro but I’ll go there anyway.

      The next Romo? I’m personally looking for a helluva lot smarter QB than Romo to guide this team. If you’re going to compare the next Cowboys QB to anyone, it ought to be Aikman or Staubach, two guys who didn’t choke in the clutch and knew when to throw and where.

        Ha! Valid points. I actually meant the next Romo in that they would be an undrafted or late-round gem. Romo may not be the most consistent, but I think you’d both agree he’s pretty good for a UFA

    Happy to see a Frog getting some consideration.

      Big fan of Pachall here. I think he’s got crazy potential. And he did visit Valley Ranch so there’s a good possibility for us taking him

        Yeah, he broke most of Andy Dalton’s records during his sophomore year and was cited by many as the best QB in the Big 12 at the start of his junior year before he imploded. Broke his left arm early in his senior year so that was pretty much a goose egg as well. No telling what kind of numbers he might have put up his junior and senior years under different circumstances. He’ll get a chance somewhere. Would be nice if it’s with the Boys.
