Dak Prescott’s Dallas Cowboys 3 QB Targets In 2024 NFL Draft

Must read

As the 2024 NFL Draft approaches, the Dallas Cowboys have been a frequent topic amongst media members. Criticized for a lack of offseason movement, it’s worth wondering if Dallas will soon decide to hit the reset button. Doing so typically requires a team to draft a new quarterback of the future and SB Nation’s Tony Catalina listed Jordan Travis (Florida State), Joe Milton (Tennessee) and Austin Reed (Western Kentucky) as palyers that fit the billing.

Jordan Travis had the best season of his Florida State career before suffering a College Football Playoff-altering leg injury against North Alabama. He was sidelined for the remainder of the season, bringing his Seminoles tenure to a close and creating an adversity-filled climb to the NFL.

Travis is a dual-threat quarterback. After relying on his legs far too often in previous years, Travis developed as a passer. He finished his final season with 2,756 yards, 20 touchdowns and two interceptions. He rushed for seven scores as well.

Joe Milton has all of the arm strength a team could ever want, but accuracy is where he fell short throughout his time in college. There was hope he could remedy that weakness after taking over the starting job at Tennessee, but inconsistency continued to plague him. That may change with NFL coaches and an unlimited amount of resources.

Milton’s arm is, without question, the strongest in the draft and will rival the cannon that Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen both possess. But can he deliver the passes with accuracy? Time will tell.

If you don’t watch college football, you probably don’t know who Austin Reed is. If you do, you know that he could’ve started at most Power Five schools had he chosen to transfer. Instead, he chose loyalty to Western Kentucky over other options and stuffed the stat sheet for a second consecutive season.

He threw for 3,340 yards and 31 touchdowns with 11 interceptions last season after throwing for 4,744 yards, 40 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions in 2022.

Is this idea all about “replacing” Dak Prescott, who is in the final year of his deal? Not really; a late-round pick isn’t likely to be that guy. But is there wisdom in “throwing a dart” at the QB position? Almost always, yes.
