While he spent much of his time last season on the sidelines due to an injury, his quality remains unquestioned. But could we be on the verge of seeing a new Dak Prescott in the league? One former quarterback believes so.

Former NFL quarterback Dan Orlovsky took to Twitter to laud NFL Draft prospect Trey Lance. He believes that Lance is very similar to Dak Prescott.

He noted that much like Prescott, he is a great passer, and can throw the ball deep. Furthermore, he has the ability to throw the ball in active movement and has great decision-making.

Coming from a fellow quarterback like Orlovski, this is high praise for Lance. Prescott is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL currently.

His ability to lift a team just by his passing and overall performance is unparalleled, as we saw this season. To be compared to a player like Prescott is huge for Lance, and he will be hoping to live up to this comparison.

Trey Lance- The next Dak Prescott?

Prescott was one of the few positives for the Dallas Cowboys this season. In the few games that he did play for the Cowboys, he put in solid performances.

But unfortunately for the Cowboys, Prescott suffered an injury early in the season. The loss of Prescott led to the Cowboys having a real slump and going on a major losing streak.

However, the Cowboys were able to salvage their season in the final stretch. They went on a bit of a winning streak. But ultimately, they ended up missing the Playoffs on the final day of the season, after a loss to the New York Giants. It was a fitting end to what was a poor season for the Cowboys.

Will Trey Lance become the next Dak Prescott? That remains to be seen. But there seems to be high hopes about Lance’s potential in the NFL. He will be hoping to capitalize on his potential going forward in his career.
