QB Dak Prescott named Senior Bowl Most Outstanding Player

New, comments

The 2016 Senior Bowl is officially a wrap, and Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott was named Most Outstanding Player of the game. Prescott finished the game completing 7 of 10 passes for 61 yards and a touchdown. He also rushed for 14 yards on three attempts. Brandon Allen led the South team in passing, finishing 7-of-10 for 106 yards. Prescott's touchdown appeared to be the difference. Carson Wentz was 6-of-10 for 50 yards.

There is not much in the way of video from Prescott's performance. I did come across this Vine of his touchdown pass to Paul McRoberts. We don't see much of Prescott, but we see him zip the ball in what would appear to be a very good location in front of the diving defender.

One random online scout thought Prescott could fit in well with Chip Kelly and the San Francisco 49ers.

Prescott finished the 2015 season completing 66 percent of his passes for 3,793 yards, 29 touchdowns and five interceptions. CBS Sports currently ranks him sixth among 2016 QB draft prospects, and project him as a 3rd-4th round pick.

Prescott appears to have had a solid week of practice. Our Mississippi State blog took a look at his first day of work, with several links. I haven't followed Prescott much, but it sounds like he is fighting off Tim Tebow comparisons. He got work under center this week (see the MSU blog link), and that will be something to track at the Combine and his Pro Day.
