Watch Cowboys QB Dak Prescott offer OU’s Kyler Murray advice before the 2019 NFL Draft

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott came into the NFL in 2016 with questions and doubts as a fourth-round pick out of Mississippi State.

And while Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray is a former five-star recruit who won the 2018 Heisman Trophy and is slated to be the No. 1 overall pick in 2019 NFL Draft, he has a kindred spirit in Prescott because of concerns about his size.

In a video shared by Oklahoma Football’s Twitter account, Prescott offered an uplifting message to Murray heading into Thursday’s draft.

”What’s up Kyler, it’s Dak,” Prescott said in the video. “Trust me, I know what it’s like to be doubted. Remember though, doubt is a gift. It takes you to the next level. So what if they doubt you? They doubted me too.”

Prescott is 32-16 as a starter over the last three years and has led the Cowboys to two NFC East titles and a playoff win. He is in active negotiations on a long-term contract extension that could pay him between $27-30 million annually.

Not bad for a former 135th overall pick.
