BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The Bills have already have a mobile quarterback in Tyrod Taylor… But they could take a similar athlete in Dak Prescott — who threw for 3800 yards, 29 touchdowns and just five interceptions as a senior.
Like Taylor, Prescott has wheels — but at 230 pounds — he’s a lot more to handle.
“Just watch my film, I think playing in the SEC, I ran the ball a lot. To get hit like I did sometimes and jump up just shows my toughness for example… I’ve fought adversity on and off the field all my career, so I think that speaks for itself.”
What Prescott now must answer for is a DUI charge from march 13 — a stark contrast to his perceived good character and leadership abilities.
Before that incident — Prescott knew he still had plenty to prove.
“I think I have to show people I can make all the drops under center something I’ve never been asked to do in high school nor college but I’ve been working really hard on doing it…My first live reps were at the senior bowl under center, so just to show that i can do that i can get better, I’m athletic enough to do it so I don’t think it’s a hard transition.”
He certainly made it look easy at the senior bowl — completing 7 of 10 passes for 61 yards and a touchdown — to earn m-v-p honors — and to help silence comparisons to Tim Tebow — who played in the same offense.
The Bills are set to meet with Prescott soon — and if he winds up in Buffalo — the Louisiana native says weather won’t be a problem.
“I can take it from playing in 20 degrees which we did at Arkansas this past year and I had a pretty productive game… Or the monsoon I played in in Missouri, which I had a pretty productive game.”
