The Cowboys will have a formal interview with A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel on Saturday night, just before he interviews with the Houston Texans. Combine interviews last only 15 minutes, and teams are allowed 60 interviews.
It is a long-shot that Dallas, drafting 16th, has any chance at landing Manziel, who is expected to be a top-four selection. But Cowboys owner Jerry Jones loves Manziel’s skills, and Manziel grew up a Cowboys fan.
“Me growing up as a Cowboys fan – I was born at halftime of a Cowboys game – that would almost be a folktale in the correct direction,” Manziel told the Star-Telegram last week in San Diego of the possibility of the Cowboys drafting him. “We'd have to call that Johnny something else. I don’t know what it would be.”
