Found this today...

Quote:
Rangers like quarterbacks: There cannot be an NFL team that has drafted two quarterbacks as good as the two drafted by the Texas Rangers.

In June 2012, the Rangers used a 15th-round pick in the Major League Baseball draft on Jameis Winston, who went on to attend Florida State and win the Heisman Trophy on Saturday night.

Then on Dec. 12, in baseball's Rule 5 draft, the Rangers drafted Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

But it's not just standout quarterbacks the Rangers have drafted. In 2009, Texas drafted current Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper, offering him a $250,000 signing bonus. He ultimately decided to return to Florida to play football.

Texas also once acquired the rights to running back Ricky Williams from Montreal after the Expos had taken him in the Rule 5 draft in 1998, even though the former Heisman Trophy winner planned to play football, not baseball.

In their defense, everyone needs a quarterback for their power play. Even in Dallas. Or Arlington.
