Projected top pick prays for Cowboys trade to avoid Cleveland Browns

Garrett is a player that can impact the game like a J.J.

In a message directed to Jerry Jones, Garrett said, "I need you to take Tony Romo, and a couple picks, and send them to Cleveland".

Garrett has since followed up by saying that the video was supposed to be amusing and that he didn't think it would go anywhere.

"I'm speaking to you, Jerry", Garrett said while talking into the camera. Please. I would love to play in Dallas. The 21-year-old really wants to play for the Cowboys, and he has a plan on how the franchise can make it happen. "Whatever it takes, I don't want to be a Cleveland Brown". "Mr. (Jason) Garrett, make it happen".

There is so much time between the last snap of the college season and the first selection of the draft that the weeks leading up to the exercise, which will be in Philadelphia this year, often encompass nothing more than the search for flaws.

Manning, who was infamously drafted No.1 overall by the now Los Angeles Chargers when they were down in San Diego, refused to hold up his Chargers jersey and draft day cap before forcing a draft-day deal to the New York Giants back in 2004.

"They have the No. 1 pick", he said of the Browns. Or as Garrett put it, "Take a joke, people". I mean it matters if they are the first pick or not.

"If you go in there with a mindset that you're going to turn things around, you can make that contagious and people start to believe in it, then you can turn it into a winning program wherever you go".

The other finalists for the 2016 Lombardi Award are Alabama defensive tackle Jonathan Allen, Michigan utility man Jabrill Peppers and Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson.
