Prescott took the NFL by storm
Part of the reason Prescott’s rookie season is unforgettable is due to his draft positioning. The Cowboys didn’t select Dak until the fourth round. Here are the QBs that went before him and where there careers are now:
- Jared Goff – starting QB for the Detroit Lions
- Carson Wentz – starting QB for the Washington Commanders
- Paxton Lynch – out of the NFL, last played in 2017
- Christian Hackenberg – out of the NFL, never played in the regular season
- Jacoby Brissett – backup for the Cleveland Browns (starting in place of Deshaun Watson)
- Cody Kessler – out of the NFL, last played in 2018
- Connor Cook – out of the NFL, last played in 2016
To say the scouts were wrong in their analysis of Prescott is an understatement.
In 2016, Dak and fellow rookie Ezekiel Elliott led the Cowboys to a 13-3 record and an NFC East title.
Dallas’ season would end in a 34-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Divisional Round.
