The accolades keep on coming for Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott.
After a prolific collegiate career, Prescott earned one last honor while wearing a Mississippi State helmet: Prescott earned Most Outstanding Player honors at Saturday’s Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala.
Prescott had an impressive showing during the second quarterback on the field for the South team. Prescott completed 7-of-10 passes for 61 yards and a touchdown while rushing three times for 13 yards in the South’s 27-16 victory.
“It was fun, these guys they’re fun to play with,” Prescott told NFL Network’s Alex Flanagan after the game. “Just being able to get in there and have them rally around me in that two-minute offense and being able to score and get the team going it was fun.”
Prescott’s dual-threat abilities make him one of the more intriguing quarterback prospects as the pre-draft evaluation period gets underway. He said the dual-threat quarterback is emerging in the NFL and said that can help him come draft day.
“I think it’s something that is new in the league and I think it’s got a lot of promise,” said Prescott. “We can stretch the defense, they have to respect the run and can’t just put a lot of guys back there and it’s exciting. Cam Newton’s opening the doors and Russell Wilson and all those guys.
