INDIANAPOLIS -- If you're researching the most coveted quarterbacks in the upcoming NFL draft you're going to have to dig a little deeper to find Dak Prescott.
And that's OK with him.
Digging deep and putting in the work are things that have defined the career of Prescott, a three-star recruit out of North Louisiana who went on to set 38 records at Mississippi State.
Only three quarterbacks have received an NFL.com draft grade of 6.0 or higher, one of them Carson Wentz of FCS school North Dakota State.
Never miss a local story.
Prescott says the anonymity suits him fine.
"That's more for y'all to worry about than me," he told media at the NFL Combine today. "I'm just worried about getting my foot in the door with an organization, and I'll make the most of it from then on. I'm going to come in every day no matter where I'm at and continue to get better."
In the short term, getting better for Prescott means becoming more comfortable with taking snaps from under center.
It's something he was rarely asked to do in high school or college. That could change soon.
Prescott worked under center at the Senior Bowl and believes his athleticism will help him make a quick and easy adjustment.
"I just have to work on it and get comfortable with it," he said.
That's the kind of response NFL coaches and executives are beginning to expect from Prescott. Earlier Thursday, Jacksonville coach Gus Bradley, who coached Prescott in the Senior Bowl, praise him as a "natural leader."
Prescott also gets high marks on his 6-foot-2, 230-pound frame. His agent, Rick Roberts, compared him to a bigger version of Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson.
Prescott pointed to Wilson and other mobile quarterbacks in the NFL as guys who have been able to make plays from under center.
"I think I need to show people that I can make all the drops from under center," he said. "I want to show that I can do that and that I can get better."
Building a better Dak is his focus. He concedes that draft placement is important in that it leads to a bigger contract, but he refuses to be distracted by the discussion.
Most projections have him going between the second and fifth rounds.
"I'm just really worried about getting my foot in at (a) camp, getting in that organization and showing them what I can do," he said. "The paycheck is the only thing that matters at that point. There are a lot of great quarterbacks, Hall-of-Famers, who were drafted late.
"It's about getting in and proving yourself once you're in camp."
