Dak Prescott was in his first year at Mississippi State back in 2012. Tony Romo was his guy and the Cowboys were his team.

Romo being Romo, he threw three interceptions in the final game against Washington in what amounted to the NFC East championship and once again the

Prescott took to Twitter to voice his frustration in a series of three posts. The first one set the tone: "I’m DONE Taking up for Romo hadenough."

Cowboys say ‘no chance’ they’d sign Johnny Manziel

And, so, of course, with their fourth round pick in the 2016 draft, the Dallas Cowboys select Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott.

"I was a frustrated fan at the time and now he’s my teammate and I’m behind him 100%," Prescott said shortly after the draft.

Prescott was the eighth quarterback taken in the draft three rounds after Jared Goff and Carson Weentz and the only one to start in the opening weekend of the preseason. The Cowboys are taking it easy with Romo after he twice fractured his collarbone last season.

He’s been getting days off in camp and he sat for the Cowboys opener in Los Angeles on Saturday night. And with No. 2 Kellen Moore out for months with a broken leg and the Cowboys unable to sign Nick Foles or trade for Josh McCown and then electing not to pursue another veteran, Prescott played with the first team offense against the Rams. If there was an MVP given for preseason performances, Prescott would have

His QB rating was a near perfect 154.5. "He was running the show," Bryant said. "It was his huddle. He didn’t play like a rookie."

Now it’s only preseason and
Frank Gore jersey stars born in August often never show up in September through December. But with nearly 90,000 people packed into the Los Angeles Coliseum for the Rams return, Prescott received rave reviews for his poise.

"I knew it as another opportunity to prove to my teammates and my coaches and the organization the player and person I am," Prescott said. He outplayed Goff, the overall No. 1 pick, who was 4 for 9 for 38 yards with an interception on his second throw playing with the second team offense. Goff suffered a shoulder injury
Adam Vinatieri jersey and didn’t play in the second half. He plans to get first team snaps against the Chiefs this weekend.

Goff looks like a project. He’s had to learn how to take snaps under center after playing in the shotgun at Cal. It also appears he needs to become a little more aware of his surroundings. When he was asked during camp, on a clip that showed up on Hard Knocks, whether the sun set in the East or West, he had no clue. He has a built in excuse: He left Cal after his junior season and that might be a course he would have taken his senior year.

The Rams gave up a huge package of draft picks to move up to the top spot to get Goff and the expectation is he will beat out Case Keenum for the starting job.

Eagles fans were chanting "We Want Wentz. We Want Wentz," early in the first quarter last week. Sam Bradford had made a cameo, Chase Daniel was getting sacked and Wentz gives Philly fans, still waiting on their first Super Bowl win, hope for the future. But he took a hard shot from the Bucs defense and a couple of days later it was determined he suffered a hairline fracture of one of his ribs.

The Eagles also gave
Donte Moncrief jersey up a huge package of picks to move up to get Wentz. Their plan was to get him lots of playing time in the preseason he was 12 of 24 for 89 yards against Tampa and then sit him early this season and see how far Bradford could take them. That was the plan Andy Reid used in 1999 with rookie Donovan McNabb when Reid opened the season with journeyman Doug Pederson, who is now the Eagles coach. Now the Eagles hope Wentz will be healed up for the final preseason game against the Jets. The Jets’ Christian Hackenberg was the only one of the seven QBs taken ahead of Prescott who did not play in preseason week one. Paxton Lynch, the Broncos’ first round pick, was 6 of 7 for 74 yards against the Bears, but the competition is between Mark Sanchez and Trevor Siemian. Remember, Jerry Jones attempted to move up for Lynch, then second guessed for not closing the deal.

Cody Kessler, taken in the third round, fit right in
Andrew Luck Colts Jersey with the Browns, taking two safeties, including one play in which he ran along and then beyond the back line of the end zone. Jacoby Brissett, taken in the third round by the Patriots, and Connor Cook, the Raiders’ fourth round pick, each put up respectable numbers.

But there was no doubt Prescott was the star of the weekend. Just as it has become a trivia question to name the six quarterbacks taken ahead of Tom Brady in the 2000 draft, maybe one the question will be to name the seven quarterbacks taken ahead of Prescott.
