Dak Prescott is the newest quarterback of Dallas Cowboys. He is the team’s first pick in the quarterback positions after laying low in the previous NFL drafts.
At 6’2″ and 227 pounds, Rayne Dakota “Dak” Prescott is a huge contender in the field. He comes from Mississippi State University and brings with him a legendary school record in passing and rushing. His record is comparable to Tim Tebow’s. With his leadership, he was able to successfully bring MSU to the state championships and even win against Alabama.
Prescott owns 38 school records (15 career) and was a two-time All-American, two-time first-team All-SEC in 2014 and ’15 after winning MVP of the 2013 Liberty Bowl, according to CBS Sports.
Solidly built with titan strength in his legs, Dak Prescott has been observed to rely on his legs to extend the play. He has also been noted to have a lot of potential and is still continuing to be a nifty passer.
Critics have noted that Prescott needs to improve on his inconsistent footwork which results in his inaccuracy and effectiveness as the team’s quarterback.
Moreover, his NFL career was almost threatened with a DUI arrest last March weeks before the NFL Draft started.

He was quick, however, to mend things for himself and SB Nation quotes him as saying “show the true man I am and exhibit my character through my actions and behavior moving forward.”
He was then invited by the Cowboys for a pre-draft visit cementing the team’s belief in his strong potential as a lead quarterback.
Dak Prescott joins Dallas Cowboys who’s last quarterback pick was Stephen McGee back in 2009. He will play behind Tony Romo, the Cowboys’ leading quarterback along with Kellen Moore and Jameill Showers, NFL reports.
Dallas Cowboys plays an offensive rushing attack strategy but ended the season with their lead quarterback Tony Romo with an injury. The team is covered on all sides when it comes to offense but still needs to work on their defense side.
