Quarterback Dak Prescott Will Make Pre-Draft Visit To Bills
According to Chase Goodbread of NFL.com, Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott will make a pre-draft visit to the Buffalo Bills. Prescott is 6’2 and 226 pounds according to NFL.com. He is projected to be drafted anywhere from the 2nd to 5th round by most experts. It’s hard to imagine him dropping past the end of the third round but crazier things have happened at the NFL Draft.
Prescott is very athletic for a quarterback. He is a good runner with great arm strength. The fact that he can run matches up well with the Bills offensive system under offensive coordinator Greg Roman. He was named the MVP of the Senior Bowl where he completed 7 of his 10 passes for 61 yards and a touchdown.

Prescott rushed for over 2,500 yards in his college career at Mississippi State. Tim Tebow and Dak Prescott are the only two quarterbacks to throw for over 70 touchdowns and run for more than 40 touchdowns in their FBS careers. Being compared to Tim Tebow is not an ideal comparison when trying to transition from college to the NFL but Prescott definitely has more talent throwing the football than Tebow did and his skill set should transition better to the pros.
One of the negatives on Prescott’s is the DUI he got back in March. He showed poor judgment by getting behind the wheel after drinking and even worse judgment considering how close it was to the NFL Draft. He should know better than to do something so stupid a month and a half before one of the most important events in his life. Besides the DUI, he is known to generally have good character so it’s likely that most teams will look past this mistake and it won’t hurt his draft stock too badly.
Another knock on him is that he didn’t play in a pro-style offense in college. He rarely lined up under the center and took most of his snaps out of the shotgun formation. Working on his footwork from under center is going to be his biggest challenge when trying to adapt to the next level.
The other teams he is reportedly visiting include the Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, Arizona Cardinals and the Denver Broncos. The Bills seem to be doing their due diligence on a number of the quarterbacks in this draft and Dak Prescott is just another one of the many. It will be interesting to see which quarterback they select, if any at all, on the weekend of the NFL Draft.
