IRVING, Texas (AP) — Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones knows a celebrity quarterback when he sees one.

His take on Johnny Manziel: "He's Elvis."

DAY 2: Winners and losers

Jones reiterated Friday that Manziel wouldn't have beat out Romo to start if the Cowboys had taken him at No. 16 in the first round instead of Notre Dame offensive lineman Zack Martin.

Jones knew a circus would have been coming to town, saying Manziel wasn't "the usual development guy" behind an established starter such as Romo.

So, if Manziel is Elvis Presley, who is Romo? "George Strait," says Jones, flashing a wide grin.
