Ron Jaworski says Dak Prescott is already one of the NFL's 10 best quarterbacks
Is Dak Prescott one of the 10 best quarterbacks in the NFL after just one season in the league?
It's the NFL offseason, and as everyone knows, the best way to pass time during the offseason is to argue with your closest friends about all things NFL.
Of course, some arguments aren't even worth having, and I'm sure you know the ones I'm talking about, the ones we already know the answers to. Are the Browns going to be bad again? Probably. Is Blake Bortles going to win MVP? No. Will the Jets make the playoffs? Of course not.
After watching Prescott play for just one season, longtime NFL analyst Ron Jaworski is convinced that the answer is yes.
During an interview with Ed Werder on The Doomsday Podcast, Jaworski was asked if he could envision Prescott becoming a top-five or top-10 caliber NFL quarterback.
Jaworski then said Prescott's not going to become a top-10 quarterback because he already is one.
"I mean, he's a top-10 quarterback right now based on one season of play," Jaworski said.
That's definitely a bold statement, but it might not be as crazy as it sounds.
You could make an argument for Andrew Luck, but he's way too banged up to be put in my top 10. To fill the final three spots, I'd probably go with Philip Rivers, Derek Carr and Prescott, which means sorry to Matthew Stafford and Eli Manning, I just couldn't find room for you in my top 10.
As for Jaworski, who quarterbacked the Eagles to Super Bowl XV back in 1980, he says that Prescott is only going to get better thanks in large part to the talent that Cowboys coach Jason Garrett has assembled in Dallas.
"You look at the weapons that [Prescott] has around him: I always say the quarterback is a dependent position. You depend on other people doing their job so you can do yours," Jaworski said. "When you look at the people that [offensive coordinator] Scott Linehan has put around him, and Jason Garrett has put around him, it starts with the guys up front. You got a [Tyron] Smith, a [La'el] Collins, a [Travis] Frederick, a [Zack] Martin and now a Chaz Green going to step in probably at that right tackle spot."
"They're going to run the ball first, then they're going to throw the football with the play-action pass and you've got a plethora of players that can catch the football, that are smart, that read coverage well," Jaworski said. "You look at Dak and the weapons around him, I mean, how can you not be excited about the future of the Dallas Cowboys, particularly on offense?"
Of course, if you're a Cowboys fan, you might not want to get too excited about Jaworski's assessment of Prescott. After all, this is the guy who said Colin Kaepernick could .
