NFL quarterback No. 9 – Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys
A player I have argued never gets enough credit is Dak Prescott. For a full year fans didn’t want to pay Prescott big money, and then when he was injured in 2020, fans really saw his value.
There’s no doubt that Prescott has a lot of weapons on offense, but he has a record of 53-32 as a starter with 143 touchdown passes and only 50 interceptions.
He has a cannon of an arm, can move well in the pocket, and has great accuracy. Pair that with his ability to quickly read a defense and I think he could eventually crack the top five quarterbacks in the league in the next few years.
NFL quarterback No. 8 – Justin Herbert, Las Angeles Chargers
Coming into the 2020 draft, Joe Burrow was the clear No. 1 quarterback of the draft, but Tua Tagovailoa and Justin Herbert were neck and neck for two and three.
Luckily for the Chargers, the Dolphins went with Tua and the Chargers ended up with one of the best arm talents in the league.
I am first to admit I didn’t love Herbert coming into the draft. I thought that Oregon was just a system and he couldn’t make it in the NFL Man, was I wrong, and the Chargers are now going all in to surround him with the talent to win now.
