For aspiring NFL quarterbacks, there are countless workouts and private interviews ahead of the 2016 NFL Draft on April 28. But for top prospects, one interview comes in front of the camera with former NFL coach and current Monday Night Football analyst Jon Gruden.
In this edition, it was former Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott’s turn.
In his latest segment, the always-quirky Gruden broached Prescott’s recent DUI arrest. They also spoke about the death of Prescott’s mother during his college career and how that helped shape his character as he takes the next step in his career.
