dak-prescott-net-worthThe Dak Prescott net worth story may be just getting started, but it has an excellent chance of going big. In the NCAA he played for the Mississippi State Bulldogs, setting dozens of school records including most total offensive yards, most career passing yards, most touchdowns, pass completions and highest pass completion percentage. In fact, Prescott currently holds every QB record for the team, including total offense records and career and single-season records. When he hit the NFL it was a case of big fish, small pond however. Prescott was selected as a fourth round draft pick by the Dallas Cowboys. He was 135th overall. However, after an injury to then backup QB Kellen Moore, Prescott moved in to compete with first backup QB Jameill Showers. The Cowboys picked him as their starting QB after a spine injury to ten-year starting QB Tony Romo. So far in his career he’s earned $545,848 in salary and an estimated $150,000 for merchandise sales. For 2017 he’s slated to earn $635,848, though that could easily notch upward depending on his 2016 performance.
