Dallas still has a shot at the NFL Playoffs with a win over Washington in week 17, but the Cowboys need to start looking at their future, and finding a quarterback to replace Tony Romo is the latest buzz on social media.
Bleacher Report writer Michael Schottey has suggested in his latest mock draft that Dallas looks at taking a quarterback with their top pick, and while some football fans believe this might be a reach, this team needs to think long-term.
Schottey has Dallas taking Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray. While most football experts disagree with this selection, it could become the move that helps this team for the next ten years. Murray has shown this season that he can play good football against quality teams, and his showing in the SEC Championship against Alabama has elevated his stock with draft experts.
If Dallas does decide to take a quarterback in the 2013 NFL Draft, doing so in the first round will get them a good player and one that can learn the ropes for two or three years behind Romo. Another option for the Cowboys could be Matt Barkley of USC, but in either case, these young men could become the face of the franchise in the last half of this decade.
