Dallas Cowboys select Dak Prescott: Twitter reacts


The Dallas Cowboys took Dak Prescott in the fourth round of the NFL Draft and Twitter let their thoughts be heard

One of the big things that NFL fans were looking for the Dallas Cowboys to do in the 2016 NFL Draft was to select a quarterback to backup Tony Romo. After the debacle that ensued when Romo was injured last season, it was a logical correction for the Cowboys to try and make. The question was where they would take a quarterback. After three rounds, they finally answered that question when they selected Dak Prescott out of Mississippi State late in Round 4.

Taking Dak Prescott seemed like the logical move for the Cowboys in this position. Considering that he’s a player that needs to develop for a couple of years in the NFL, it makes sense to slot him in behind Romo while the latter is still in Dallas. Of course, football fans on Twitter had a variety of opinions about the pick.

Here’s what Twitter had to say about Dak Prescott being taken in the fourth round by the Dallas Cowboys:

Whether he’s the future or just a serviceable backup to Tony Romo, the best and most definitive thing that Dallas Cowboys fans can say about Dak Prescott is that he’s not Brandon Weeden. After the debacle of last season, that means just about more than anything else.
