Former Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott is set to be one of seven draft prospects featured on ESPN’s Gruden’s QB Camp in April.
On Wednesday, ESPN announced the seventh season of the show, which features former Super Bowl-winning coach Jon Gruden working with top quarterback prospects in the NFL Draft.
“Prescott is perhaps the No. 1 dual-threat quarterback this year,” Gruden said. “He can hurt you running or passing. He’s done it in a very difficult conference, and he’s won at a place where a lot of quarterbacks haven’t. I’ve spent some time with him before this process and he’s a bright-eyed, eager, confident talent that needs to be in the right place, but he can play.”
Prescott is the only SEC quarterback who will appear in the 2016 season of Gruden’s QB Camp, and will be joined by Jared Goff, Carson Wentz, Paxton Lynch, Connor Cook, Christian Hackenberg and Cardale Jones.
Among the quarterbacks featured on the show in previous seasons are former Heisman Trophy winners Cam Newton and Johnny Manziel.
Prescott earned the MVP award at the Senior Bowl in January and finished his collegiate career at Mississippi State as one of only two players in SEC history to throw for more than 70 touchdowns and rush for more than 40, joining former Florida quarterback Tim Tebow.
