NFL Media ranks Mississippi State redshirt senior QB Dak Prescott as the No. 4 Heisman contender.
"He stars for a 'non-traditional' program, and how Mississippi State plays this season will have a huge bearing on whether Prescott is a viable Heisman guy," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Mike Huguenin. Prescott threw for 3,449 yards on 61 percent completions with a 27/11 TD/INT ratio last year, adding 986 rush yards and 14 scores on the ground. He nearly became the seventh quarterback in FBS history with 3,000 passing yards and 1,000 rushing yards, and we suspect he will complete the trick this year. May 27 - 1:09 AM

NFL Media ranks Mississippi State redshirt senior QB Dak Prescott as the No. 14 offensive player in the nation.

"At 6-2 and 230 pounds, he's built to punish defenders when he keeps the ball on the option play," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Chase Goodbread. Prescott threw for 3,449 yards on 61 percent completions with a 27/11 TD/INT ratio and rushed for 986 yards and 14 scores last season. He's an early Heisman frontrunner.

Walter Football grades Mississippi State redshirt senior QB Dak Prescott as a Rds. 2-4 prospect.

"Prescott's play has been somewhat reminiscent of Tim Tebow at Florida because Prescott is playing in the same offense for Tebow's former offensive coordinator, Dan Mullen, the Mississippi State head coach," the site noted. "Like Tebow, Prescott needs to improve his pocket passing and accuracy for the NFL." Prescott checks in as the No. 5 QB on the board, according to WF. Last season, he threw for 3,449 yards on 61 percent completions with a 27/11 TD/INT ratio. Prescott added 986 yards and 14 scores on the ground.

Mississippi State redshirt senior QB Dak Prescott "is a true duel-threat quarterback with the mobility and size to power through would-be tacklers, along with the arm talent to push the ball downfield through the air," writes CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

Rang recently ranked Prescott as the No. 7 senior draft prospect in the country. "He needs to improve his consistency and ball placement as a senior, but has a next level future if he continues his development in 2015," Rang wrote. "Although the Tim Tebow comparisons are often overused, Prescott has similar size, skill-set, composure and leadership as the former first round pick." Prescott is one of five or so Heisman frontrunners, and he may just be the frontrunner period.

Mississippi State redshirt senior QB Dak Prescott ranks as the No. 7 senior draft prospect in the country, says CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

"Made correct decision in returning to refine his game. Flashes NFL-caliber poise, accuracy," Rang wrote. The Bulldogs' star completed 61.6 percent passes for 27 touchdowns and 11 interceptions last season. The decision to return to school was an interesting one, as Prescott could have been the No. 3 QB taken. Of course, he could have also joined Brett Hundley as a toolsy prospect who slid due to rawness.

Mississippi State redshirt junior QB Dak Prescott was assaulted at a recent Waka Flocka concert in Florida.

MSU defensive end Torrey Dale and quarterback Damian Williams, traveling on spring break with Prescott, were also present at the time of the attack. Details are sparse, but Prescott was apparently hit with a bottle in the head. Maroonandwhitenation.com has provided a few additional updates: "Sources confirm Dak was backed into a corner and surrounded, then jumped by a fairly large number of people. Reason is unknown." Alex Scarborough of ESPN.com tweeted that Prescott's "brother tells me he’s doing fine." Prescott enters next season as a Heisman frontrunner.

Yahoo Sports’ Rand Getlin and ESPN’s Joe Schad are both reporting that Mississippi State redshirt junior QB Dak Prescott will return to Starkville for his senior season.

Prescott will hold a press conference on Wednesday, but that's expected to be a mere formality to this announcement. The Bulldogs' star completed 61.6 percent passes for 27 touchdowns and 11 interceptions this season. Because of a weak QB class, Prescott could have heard his name called on Day 2, but a gigantic senior campaign could conceivably push him into Round 1 consideration.

Mississippi State redshirt junior QB Dak Prescott will hold a press conference on Wednesday.

Rand Getlin reports Prescott is expected to announce his return to school. The quarterback class is very weak after the top two passers in this draft, and some might have ranked Prescott third on that list.
Jan 13 - 6:06 PM

Mississippi State redshirt junior QB Dak Prescott completed 33 of 51 attempts for 453 yards, three touchdowns and one interceptions in the school's 49-34 loss to Georgia Tech.

Theoretically Miss State should win when putting up 34 points, but the defense allowed the Yellow Jackets to score 49. Prescott's NFL decision is still to come, but he has a long way to go in terms of winning inside and outside of structure from what is termed a "conventional" offense.
Jan 1 - 1:06 PM

Miss State redshirt junior QB Dak Prescott denied a report that said he is returning for the 2015 season.

"I don't remember making those remarks," Dak said. Now, this does not mean Prescott is declaring for the draft. Most likely he wants to take the time to think over his decision, which is due in about two weeks. After the top two, this quarterback class is barren, Prescott might receive advice saying he'd be third on the list. We are not so sure.
Jan 1 - 10:06 AM

Mississippi State redshirt junior QB Dak Prescott received a grade from the NFL Draft Advisory Board but declined to disclose it to the media.

"I don't think it's any more round," Prescott said. "Just what I feel (is) best for me, what I feel more comfortable doing." The signal-caller said in October that he would enter the draft if he were projected as a first-rounder, and would consider it if he were projected as a Round 2 or 3 pick. He said his thinking has changed, now, though we're guessing the committee told Prescott that he isn't projected to go in the first- or second-round. "I still have another year to come back and improve, get better if I need to," Prescott said. The deadline to declare early for the draft is Jan. 15.

Mississippi State redshirt junior QB Dak Prescott requested feedback from the NFL Draft Advisory Board.

Prescott is listed as a second-round pick by CBS, so there's definitely a chance that the board grades him the same. We see in Prescott a developmental prospect who ought to return to school next year to work on his passing mechanics. "Even Cam Newton had to prove himself as a passer, and Prescott's arm isn't close to Newton's," ESPN's Mel Kiper recently wrote. "Staying in Starkville would let the junior refine his throws and be better positioned for the 2016 draft." The deadline to declare early for the draft is Jan. 15.

Mississippi State and Georgia Tech will play in the Orange Bowl on Dec. 31.

Tech's (potentially) best prospect, receiver DeAndre Smelter, will not play after having surgery on his knee. Mississippi State on the other hand has a number of prospects, including Dak Prescott, redshirt junior running back Josh Robinson, defensive end Preston Smith and linebacker Benardrick McKinney.

Mississippi State redshirt junior QB Dak Prescott completed 22-of-37 passes for 282 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's setback versus Ole Miss.

He added 48 yards rushing and a ground score. Earlier this season, Prescott was one of the draft's fastest-rising prospects. That talked has cooled, and now Prescott is viewed as what he is: A developmental prospect who ought to return to school next year to work on his passing mechanics. "Even Cam Newton had to prove himself as a passer, and Prescott's arm isn't close to Newton's," ESPN's Mel Kiper recently wrote. "Staying in Starkville would let the junior refine his throws and be better positioned for the 2016 draft."

Mississippi State redshirt junior QB Dak Prescott's "bruising running isn't valued in the NFL," according to ESPN's Mel Kiper.

"His passing has improved, but his bruising running isn't valued in the NFL," Kiper wrote. "Even Cam Newton had to prove himself as a passer, and Prescott's arm isn't close to Newton's. Staying in Starkville would let the junior refine his throws and be better positioned for the 2016 draft." Returning to school is definitely the right call for Prescott. Passing mechanics must be worked on, as well as comfort level with bullets flying around inside the pocket.
