Haughton’s Dak Prescott Meets With Cowboys, Steelers At Combine
With the annual NFL scouting combine wrapping up in Indianapolis, one of the biggest questions being asked by local sports fans is, "Who will draft Mississippi State QB Dak Prescott?
The Haughton native is already being touted as the best dual-threat quarterback in this year's draft. But scouts vary in their assessment of Prescott's pro readiness, with some saying he could be drafted as high as the second round, others as low as the fourth.
But one thing's for sure...and that's that the Mississippi State star is getting serious consideration from both the Cowboys and the Steelers, having had in-depth interviews with both teams while in Indy.
In fact, here's how one Pittsburgh paper describes Dak:
"Prescott is a unique talent, spending his first two years as a primarily running quarterback, but showed a tremendous amount of improvement and maturation by becoming a quality pocket passer in his final year in college."
It's well known that both teams are seeking a young and talented QB to serve as back-up for their aging (and injury prone) starters.
