The newest Dallas Cowboys quarterback, Dak Prescott is looking forward to learning under Tony Romo.
Prescott was drafted in the fourth round, with the 135th overall pick, at the end of a scouting season that saw him work with or in front of the Cowboys’ coaching staff at the Senior Bowl, the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis and at a private workout with Cowboys quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson in Starkville, MS.
The Cowboys also hosted Prescott on a pre-draft visit to Valley Ranch.
“I’m excited I'm going to a good team,” Prescott said. “I’ve got a great quarterback ahead of me that I can learn from. I can pick up everything, from the way he handles his business on and off the field, the way he goes about being a pro within the facility is something I'm looking forward to learning from Tony.”
For Prescott and most other prospects in the draft, getting the call from any team would have been exciting. But the Mississippi State product was a Cowboys fan growing up, which certainly added to the experience.
“It was awesome, it was a dream come true,” Prescott said. “It was an amazing call, sitting there waiting with the family. The phone rang saying Dallas, Texas. I answered to hear on the other side Mr. Jones speaking.”
