Number 10

Dak Prescott

After having a strong 2019 campaign Prescott showed that he had the ability to carry a team and lead an offense, racking up 4,900 passing yards and having a 30-11 touchdown to interception ratio.

Not only that but Prescott is known to have some amazing mobility in the pocket once again displayed this year as he had 277 rushing yards and three touchdowns to go with it.

Why this ranking is so low on the list is due to the Dallas Cowboys front office. In my opinion, Jerry Jones has no intention of letting Prescott even hear offers from other teams. They tried locking up a deal sometime during the regular season and weren’t able to do so, therefore I am under the impression that he might play under the franchise tag for the 2020 season.

Though if he were to hit the open market the Chargers would most likely opt out of drafting a quarterback in the draft and focus on making Prescott the future of the organization.

The type of deal that Prescott is looking to get will not be cheap as well. The average market price for a quarterback with his improvements and progression runs anywhere from $33-36 million a year. If he was to go to the Chargers the contract would most likely be five years for $175 million.

Likeliness – 1

Potential Fit – B+
