For Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, rehabbing from back surgery has become a familiar process.
He had to do it in 2013, when he missed all of OTAs and minicamp while making his way back from a late-spring operation, and he’s had to do it again this year after the injury that forced him to miss Week 17 last season. Romo was able to do some limited work in the offseason program this year, which has left him well ahead of where he was the first time around.
“Miles ahead of last year,” Romo said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I don’t think they’re comparable. I think last year I was just starting around this point so this year I’ve had whatever months to kind of get myself into feeling like I can go. Now it’s going to be more perfecting as opposed to just trying to hammer everything out in four weeks, three weeks.”
Romo is ranked 12th among our QBs and presents pretty good value at the position for the 8th round. We project him for over 30 passing TDs, which is higher than seven QBs ahead of him on our list. If you plan to wait, and wait some more at QB, Romo is a guy to target midway through your draft, assuming he stays on track.
