Dallas Cowboys' quarterback Tony Romo says that he's happy with the receivers currently on the roster, and sees no need to address the position through Thursday night's draft. Though it was initially thought that Dallas would not draft a receiver, rumors of late have the team highly interested in former Oklahoma State star Dez Bryant, who visited Valley Ranch near the beginning of the month.
"I've been saying it for a few years now: we're pretty deep at the receiver position," Romo said, per ESPNDallas.com. "Say what you want about 1,2,3,4, whoever makes our team I'm very comfortable with going one-to-five."
Romo's comfort with the current receiving corps--which currently consists of Miles Austin, Roy Williams, Patrick Crayton, Sam Hurd, and Kevin Ogletree, as well as practice squad members Jesse Holley and Manuel Johnson--is probably a good thing. Owner Jerry Jones said that he, too, was comfortable with the position as it stands now.
"That's unlikely because I like where we are at receiver and so ... unlikely," Jones said. "And I'm not defining whether it's unlikely one that would slip is unlikely to slip, or whether I'm likely to do it if he slips. Seriously, I'm having a play with words here, but I don't think that's likely, in my opinion."
The Dallas brass have said little in the weeks leading up to tonight's draft. While they've hinted at this or that idea, they've staunchly refused to dismiss anything, no matter how unlikely it may seem.
"For the most part, we could be ready to do anything," said Stephen Jones on Tuesday. "I'd never say never about anything."
