2013 NFL Mock Draft: Is Mike Glennon the answer for the Cowboys?

Streeter Lecka

After another disappointing season, does Dallas need to find their quarterback of the future?

The Dallas Cowboys fell out of contention in 2011 when they lost four of their last five games and missed the playoffs at 8-8. They had another opportunity in 2012 to win the NFC East, but lost to the Washington Redskins in the final game of the season and again finished 8-8. These aren't the standards that Dallas is used to, so even if Tony Romo is far from being the biggest problem, is it time to start over at the quarterback position?

In his latest mock draft, Rob Rang of CBS Sports slates North Carolina State quarterback Mike Glennon as the best choice for Dallas at pick 16 of the first round:

The 6-5, 232-pound Glennon offers a high upside and has enjoyed plenty of success already in his young career, throwing for 30-plus touchdowns in each of his two seasons as NC State's starter -- a plateau previous standout Wolfpack quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Philip Rivers never accomplished.

Romo led the NFL with 19 interceptions this past season, while completing 65.6% of his passes for 4,903 yards and 28 touchdowns. He also led a league-high five fourth-quarter comebacks in 2012. In the season finale against Washington, Romo threw three interceptions and had a quarterback rating of 55.9. He turns 33 next season.

Is Glennon going to be the quarterback of the future for Dallas and is that their biggest need in the first round?
