Former Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott has a busy month ahead of him before the 2016 NFL Draft with visits scheduled with four teams in April, according to Chase Goodbread of NFL.com.
Prescott is set to visit the Denver Broncos, Buffalo Bills, Philadelphia Eagles and Arizona Cardinals next month before the draft gets started on Thursday, April 28.
The two-time All-American has already drawn interest from the Dallas Cowboys who have spent time with Prescott at the Senior Bowl, NFL Scouting Combine and had a private workout with the quarterback on Monday, according to Goodbread.
On Wednesday, Cardinals quarterbacks coach Freddie Kitchens was also in Starkville, Miss. to work with Prescott. The scheduled visits and workouts come to despite a recent DUI arrest for Prescott.
“I took full responsibility for it and I felt like both teams wanted to know that it’s not who I am,” Prescott told Goodbread. “I didn’t try to lessen it, by any means. I explained what happened.
“It was my fault and the damage is done. Right now it’s about overcoming it, and not letting it affect me in a negative way. It was a learning situation for me, and I took something away from it. It’s going to make me a better person from that point forward.”
The Cowboys and Cardinals already have aging starting quarterbacks in Tony Romo and Carson Palmer, but could use a young alternative to groom to fill the starting role in the future. The Super Bowl-champion Broncos are in need of a quarterback following the retirement of Peyton Manning and departure of Brock Osweiler in free agency.
