The Dallas Cowboys have finally drafted a backup for starting quarterback Tony Romo. After passing on signal-callers like Christian Hackenberg and Connor Cook earlier in the draft, the Cowboys finished off Round 4 by selecting former Mississippi State star Dak Prescott.
Dallas drafting Dak Prescott in round 4 is first time Cowboys have drafted a QB in 7 years, since taking Stephen McGee in 4th round in 2009.

It was a strong pick for Dallas, who will need to develop for the next few years behind Romo.
Since the 2016 Senior Bowl, Prescott has watched his stock rapidly rise. Prescott was one of the best signal-callers on display in Mobile and the Cowboys were there to see his skill set first hand.
If Prescott can fully develop into his potential, the Cowboys could be looking at their quarterback of the future.
