7. Dak Prescott
Patrick Mahomes’s contract warped the picture for future NFL quarterback deals. Just what will happen with Prescott and the Cowboys? ‘America’s Team’ desperately needs a top QB as Prescott’s absence through injury shows. But is he the man to lead them forward into the future? Do they really want to commit $100 million to a player who still has it all to prove?
These are huge questions but the issue is that Prescott hasn’t proven himself yet even though he played great before his injury. In short, he’s not the type of gamechanger who will singlehandedly guide his team into the Super Bowl. A poor 2019 and an unfortunate 2020 make Prescott’s future very muddy indeed. But it does seem like Prescott or his management team overrated himself.
