We are less than a week away from the NFL league year beginning and while we are expecting to see a lot of intrigue in free agency, all eyes are on this year's draft.

The Tennessee Titans hold the number one pick this year but arguably the first big intriguing question is who will the Dallas Cowboys take at number four?

Sticking with Tony

After an injury plagued season last year, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is facing more questions than ever before.

After suffering the same injury twice last year, some have questioned if the Cowboys will now look to the future with their high draft pick?

With names like Carson Wentz, Cardale Jones and Jared Goff all entering the league this year, there would be possibilities for the Cowboys.

However Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has never wavered in his support of Romo and if his latest comments are to be believed, Romo's future is secure in Dallas.

"Jerry told me recently that he will unequivocally not take a quarterback at No. 4, where the Cowboys draft this year. I believe him."

With Jones claiming that the team will certainly not be drafting a quarterback with their first pick, it seems to indicate that the team expect Romo to make a full recovery.

With Romo seemingly having a few years left in him, it does make sense that the team would utilise the fourth pick to address some other team needs.

Is running the key?

In 2014, the Cowboys made it to the play-offs on the legs of DeMarco Murray and their incredible offensive line.

After losing Murray to the Philadelphia Eagles in free agency last year, they turned to a make shift runningback team of Darren Mcfadden and Joseph Randle.

The plan didn't exactly back fire, but without Romo, the team had little to no offense and they are likely to be looking for a new franchise runningback with their first pick this year.
