Dak Prescott (6-foot-2, 230 pounds) — Mississippi State

The word on Dak Prescott is that he is great above the neck. He has great awareness as a passer, recognizing what is happening on the field quickly, and goes through his progressions fast.

Prescott is able to use his eyes to hold defenders, and is able to shrug off bad plays and not let them linger into other plays. He has a good arm, and can make plays when he steps into his throws. He is a great runner who combines his aggression, agility and power to get yards.

This season, Prescott threw for 3,413 yards with 25 touchdowns and just 4 interceptions. On the ground, he had 541 yards and 10 touchdowns. For his career, he has thrown for 8,996 yards with 66 touchdowns and 22 interceptions.

Even though he has a great mind for the game, Prescott sometimes has trouble going on the road and take over a game with his arm when the running game is shut down. He is still a work in progress in the passing game.

Prescott is considered Tim Tebow 2.0. He has the same intangibles of leadership, great running and intelligent play, but Prescott has a better arm and better mechanics. He has a better shot at having a career in the NFL.
