Dak Prescott has motivational message for Kyler Murray ahead of draft
Dak Prescott knows plenty about analysts and fans questioning whether or not his game will translate to the NFL level, and the Dallas Cowboys star feels that helps him relate to Kyler Murray. Heading into the draft next week, Prescott appears to be keeping a close eye on the Heisman Trophy winner’s future.
On Sunday, the Oklahoma football team shared a video that featured a motivational message from Prescott to Murray.

While the concerns about Murray’s size and style of play are similar to the ones we heard about Prescott coming out of Mississippi State, Murray has a good chance to be the top overall pick in the draft. Prescott hung around until the fourth round, and he has turned out to be a tremendous value pick for Dallas. That is not going to happen with Murray.
It would be hard for the No. 1 pick in the draft to play the underdog card. Though there have been at least some concerns about him tumbling down draft boards, Murray is going to have a lot different feel surrounding him on Thursday than Prescott had around him back in 2016.
