Seven quarterbacks were drafted ahead of Dak Prescott in last year’s NFL Draft, but the Cowboys’ QB had the most productive rookie season of any signal caller.
The Cowboys got a steal in Prescott in the fourth round with the 135th pick, and ESPN analyst Jon Gruden thinks former Tennessee quarterback Josh Dobbs could be the Dak Prescott of the 2017 NFL Draft.
Dobbs took part in Gruden’s annual “Jon Gruden’s Quarterback Camp,” and he said he saw something special in Dobbs.
That’s high praise for Dobbs, and he is the No. 9 QB on CBS Sports’ NFL Draft rankings. Dobbs will likely be selected on Day 2 or Day 3 of the draft, but if Gruden is correct, he will be a steal for some team.
Dobbs threw for 7,138 yards and 53 touchdowns during his time at Tennessee, and he also ran for 2,160 yards and 32 touchdowns.
