Watch: Joel Klatt Thinks Dak Prescott’s Success Will Help Deshaun Watson’s Draft Stock

first_imgJoel Klatt speaks about Dak Prescott and Deshaun Watson.YouTube/Speak For YourselfDak Prescott has been a revelation for the Dallas Cowboys this season after being drafted in the fourth round. FOX Sports’ Joel Klatt think that may help the stock of Deshaun Watson in next year’s NFL Draft.Every NFL team that can use a franchise quarterback today passed on Prescott in the spring. The former Mississippi State star went 135th overall. Yet, when Tony Romo went out with injury, he answered the call, and has the Cowboys at the top of the NFC East. If it wasn’t for his teammate Ezekiel Elliott’s monster year, Prescott would likely be running away with the Offensive Rookie of the Year award.Klatt went on FS1’s Speak For Yourself on Wednesday and argued that Prescott’s immediate success could help the stock of Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson, who he sees as a similar player.“The direct comp for Deshaun Watson is a guy who’s having a lot of success, and you can tie his draft stock to his success…I’m talking about Dak Prescott from the Cowboys. As long as Dak Prescott continues to play well, and show the ability to not only throw the ball well, but improvise outside of the pocket, make great decisions in the run game, get the ball to Ezekiel Elliott, Deshaun Watson’s stock is going to go through the roof. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if he ends up in the top five, maybe even the top three picks in the entire draft, and in large part, due to what Dak Prescott’s doing for the Dallas Cowboys.”Prescott will certainly impact how some scouts view quarterbacks, but we’re not sure how much of an impact it will have on Watson. The Clemson signal caller has been on the NFL radar for some time, and has been seen as a potential top pick since before Dak was even on the Cowboys roster.last_img
