With the 2014 NFL draft just 10 days away, one of the more intriguing storylines to follow is the Dallas Cowboys' growing interest in Johnny Football. Jerry Jones has reportedly been intrigued by the possibility of adding Johnny Manziel to the roster, and CBS analyst Jim Nantz recently passed along a rumor that strongly links the two sides.

If Nantz's comments are to be believed, the Cowboys will be doing everything in their power to come away from Day 1 of the draft with Manziel tabbed as their quarterback of the future.

"I can say this, he’s going to be the guy everyone wants to see. I’ve heard this rumor for a month -- the Cowboys will figure out a way to get Manziel," Nantz said via ESPN Cleveland. "Wherever Manziel goes, there is going to be more clamoring about Johnny Manziel than there would be about Blake Bortles going No. 1 or [Jadeveon] Clowney going No. 1, or anyone else. This is a guy that there’s just a tremendous interest in everything he does."

The Cowboys are always one of the most talked about teams in the league, and selecting Manziel would certainly keep the team in the headlines.

Whether or not the Cowboys will make a trade up from the No. 16 spot to make Manziel their first-round pick remains to be seen, but it will be something worth watching as the draft draws closer.
