The Dallas Cowboys have their franchise quarterback in Dak Prescott but that won’t stop him from drafting another quarterback in the 2023 NFL Draft. According to Calvin Watkins with The Dallas News, Jerry Jones recently said that they “are committed to drafting a quarterback.”
It certainly makes sense for the Cowboys to be looking at quarterbacks in the upcoming NFL Draft. Last year’s backup Cooper Rush is set to be a free agent and if they don’t bring him back that creates a big need.
In addition to Rush potentially leaving, Dak Prescott has missed at least one game in each of the past three seasons and in total 17 games during that stretch.
Could Max Duggan be the quarterback the Dallas Cowboys target in the 2023 NFL Draft?
One quarterback that Jerry Jones appears to be a fan of is Max Duggan, who previously played for TCU. According to Jori Epstein with Yahoo! Sports, the Dallas Cowboys owner provided his opinion of Duggan unprompted.
Max Duggan is one of the quarterbacks participating in this weekend’s Senior Bowl and is trying to continue an impressive final season with TCU. He actually began the season as a backup but when starter Chandler Morris injured his knee in the first game of the season, Duggan stepped in and remained the starter for the rest of the year.
He helped the TCU Horned Frogs reach the National Championship Game before losing to the Georgia Bulldogs. Max Duggan would finish the season throwing for 3,698 passing yards with 32 passing touchdowns and eight interceptions.
If the Dallas Cowboys are looking for a quarterback to take in those mid-rounds then Max Duggan would make a lot of sense. He is a player that could develop in the system and give the Cowboys a long-term answer in terms of backup quarterback behind Dak Prescott.
