San Jose State is not exactly one of California's best-known football schools, but David Fales has certainly gained the program some attention.
CBS Sports currently has the former Spartan listed as a fifth-round selection in this year's NFL draft. Miller also believes that round is where Fales will hear his name called. He projects that the Cowboys will be the ones calling his name at the podium.
With Tony Romo turning 34 years old this April, in addition to his two recent back surgeries, it makes sense for Dallas to invest in his successor. It wouldn't hurt the organization to invest a higher-round pick in a QB, but if Jerry Jones and Co. want to wait, Fales is probably the way to go at the position.
Fales has an excellent dropback and mechanics, but he isn't terribly mobile in the pocket. He is not known for his rocket of an arm either. These are two major reasons why Fales is a mid-late round pick.
All things considered, though, he needs a little coaching in the basics it takes to be a starting NFL quarterback. Dallas head coach Jason Garrett is also a former quarterback and quarterbacks coach.
Fales would be a project, but Garrett could end up turning him into a solid pro quarterback, which would be the ideal scenario for Dallas.
