Cowboys Draft: Will A Quarterback Be Considered?

is the current and future starting of the . Let's make that clear.

Prescott has done more than enough over the first three years of his career to earn this “franchise quarterback” title, and the contract he will eventually receive from the Cowboys' .

But that doesn't mean the Cowboys shouldn't consider drafting a quarterback this year. Or next year. Or the year after that.

Quarterback is the game's most important, and highest paid, position. It's the position where a player can most greatly effect a game individually, both positively and negatively.

And it's the position you must make sure is accounted for heading into any new season. Yes, the Cowboys clearly trust now fourth-year quarterback Dak Prescott, but adding talent to your QB room is never a bad thing. In fact, it's typically a great thing.

Behind Prescott are and . Rush beat out now- for the backup job during the , and then held off rookie Mike White in 2018 to maintain the job.

When the Cowboys drafted White, however, they had dreams of a new in mind. White didn't perform as well, or progress as quickly, as some had hoped leaving Cooper Rush as the unquestioned QB2, however.

Is Cooper Rush good enough, though?

This is a question which really is yet to be answered. And if the Cowboys have it their way, it will never be truly answered. He was excellent during the 2017 , no doubt about it. But he was, well, bad last year. Rush and the struggled mightily during the preseason, and while lack of depth didn't help him, Rush's play didn't spark much optimism or excitement either.

The Cowboys would be wise to consider drafting a quarterback later in the , but they shouldn't spend too much time worrying about it either way. The backup quarterback, especially behind Dak Prescott, will bring his value in terms of game-planning and aiding Prescott, rather than with his actual arm talent.

Rush is definitely NOT enough, but will have to do, cause this is a TERRIBLE QB class. Don’t want any of these chumps

Amen Ahad, better off finding a suitable low price FA for security in absolute worst case Dak goes down. Then it will be HUGE to have a solid O line with fredbeard back, plus a jacked up Williams to block for Zeke. Plus having Austin and Cobb opens up the complete playbook of quick pass options to go along with Cooper & Gallop.

I think they bring in one of two undrafted free agents QB for depth in off-season and preseason. If any of them beat guys on the team already who know. Just maybe we get lucky.
