Former Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott, a player with whom Dallas coaches have had extended contact this offseason beginning with the Senior Bowl in January, will be in North Texas on Tuesday for an official pre-draft visit with the Cowboys.
Jason Garrett and his staff coached the South team that was quarterbacked by Prescott in the Senior Bowl and met with him again in February at the Combine. Last month, quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson worked Prescott out in Starkville, MS.
"Coach Wilson just [talked] about what they expect me to do if I come in there, if it's to be in the backup role behind Tony Romo, how do I plan on approaching it and then just talking ball," Prescott said of the Combine meeting, per the Dallas Morning News. "They've been productive meetings. He told me their picks and told me that they're thinking about getting a quarterback with one of those picks. He was saying that if I work hard, things maybe could work out."
It's thought Prescott could go as high as the second round, but he's generally viewed as a mid-round selection. According to Brandon George of the Morning News, this will be his last visit ahead of the draft, on April 28.
