Mississippi State redshirt senior QB Dak Prescott is a "bruising runner who was quietly quite efficient as a passer last season," writes ESPN's Mel Kiper.
"Prescott's challenge is to show enough growth as a passer to make the Tim Tebow comparisons go away," Kiper wrote. "Because while Tebow was a first-round pick, the comparison won't do much for Prescott's stock." The analyst ranks Prescott as the No. 5 senior quarterback prospect in the NCAA. Prescott threw for 3,449 yards on 61 percent completions with a 27/11 TD/INT ratio last year. Jun 24 - 9:41 PM

Mississippi State redshirt senior QB Dak Prescott "has plenty of arm strength to launch the ball around the field and from difficult throwing positions," observes NFL Media's Lance Zierlein.

The analyst believes Prescott could join Tim Tebow and Cam Newton as large dual-threat SEC quarterbacks who won the Heisman, a national championship and went in Round 1. "Prescott has been very productive with scrambles and designed runs, but we might see less of that this season as he prepares to transition to the NFL," he wrote. "Prescott needs to get through progressions more quickly and throw with better accuracy."

The National Football Post's Austin Morris writes that he doesn't think Mississippi State redshirt senior QB Dak Prescott will succeed in the NFL.

"Prescott reminds me way too much of Tim Tebow due to the type of offense he came out of, his better running ability than throwing ability, and his body size," Morris wrote. "Prescott is a much better runner than he is a passer, and he should consider choosing one or the other to work on. As of now, I see Prescott going in the 6th Round. I don’t see enough instinctive talent as a QB to see him lasting in the league because athletic talent will only last you so long." The analyst criticized Prescott's performance against pressure, the tightness of his spiral, his point of release, his ball placement and his decision making. Precott is a divisive prospect.

It's reasonable to expect Mississippi State redshirt senior QB Dak Prescott to post career-best numbers in 2015, believes ESPN's Alex Scarborough.

Prescott threw for 3,449 yards on 61 percent completions with a 27/11 TD/INT ratio last year to finish eighth in the Heisman Trophy balloting. He added 986 rush yards and 14 scores on the ground. "It's important to note that in a lot of ways he's just getting started," Scarborough wrote. "Remember last year was his first full season as a starter. The former three-star prospect had to wait behind Tyler Russell before he won the job, and even then he showed some room for improvement. With more experience and some tweaks to his game in the pocket, we could see an even better Prescott in 2015." Prescott could become the seventh quarterback in FBS history with 3,000 passing yards and 1,000 rushing yards this fall.

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.

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.
