This exchange followed:Prescott: “As in?”Reporter: “NFL.”Prescott: “No, I mean, no.”The junior was eligible to enter the draft after last season. Earlier in the year Prescott told Sports Illustrated that he’d likely leave for the NFL if he was projected as a pick in the first three rounds.NFL teams undecided on Dak Prescott’s draft stockAt the time (Oct. 15), Senior Draft Analyst for NFLDraftScout and CBS Dane Brugler slated Prescott as a borderline top-60 pick. Since then Prescott’s play on the field has declined. Prescott has thrown six of his 10 interceptions since the story came out. Mississippi State also suffered both of its losses since that time. The junior is still a finalist for the Davey O’Brien and the Maxwell Awards. The O’Brien is given to the nation’s top quarterback, while the Maxwell is awarded to the nation’s most outstanding player. A Mississippi State quarterback hasn’t been drafted since John Bond in 1986. He was taken by the Cleveland Browns in the third round of the supplemental draft. MSU has only had four quarterbacks taken in the NFL’s regular draft. Charles Furlow was the first in 1962. The Rams selected him in the 18th round. The 49ers picked Joe Reed in the 11th round in 1971. Rocky Felker was taken by the Bengals in the 10th round of the 1975 draft. Dave Marler was the last MSU quarterback taken in a non-expansion or supplemental draft. The Bills selected him in the 10th round in 1979 Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration Time 0:00Loaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%0:00 Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVERemaining Time -0:00 Playback Rate1ChaptersChaptersdescriptions off, selectedDescriptionssubtitles off, selectedSubtitlescaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedCaptionsAudio TrackFullscreenThis is a modal window.
