ESPN NFL Insider Mike Sando went to Orlando, Florida, to watch Jon Gruden's QB Camp tapings with seven draft-eligible quarterbacks. Below, Sando has written up Gruden's biggest takeaways from the interviews and throwing sessions, in Gruden's voice.
Five takeaways on Dak Prescott
1. Prescott is the No. 1 dual-threat QB in this draft, hands down
Prescott reminds me of Donovan McNabb. He is a 230-pound running back playing the quarterback position. He can run over defenders when needed and also hurt defenses throwing the ball all over the field. These are both dynamic dual-threat talents with exceptional production at the college level. There can be a significant adjustment period, but that combination is a very good one in today's game.
When you look at what Carolina has done with Cam Newton, what Seattle has done with Russell Wilson and even what Buffalo has done with Tyrod Taylor, you see the possibilities. McNabb went to Philadelphia and got to work with coach Andy Reid, which really helped his development and set him on his way. Prescott has really improved as a passer. He can make any throw. But he will need time. He needs work with his mechanics, including his stance, but don't they all? Most of them do. Prescott will need to land with the right coach, someone who can work with his talents and help develop his game. He does have the physical attributes that helped make McNabb successful, which is a good starting point.
