The Philadelphia Eagles took their rookie quarterback with the second pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.
Four rounds later, the Cowboys took their rookie quarterback, and this week they’ll battle in a primetime matchup on NBC.
While the Eagles are more than happy with Carson Wentz, Eagles head coach Doug Pederson had positive things to say about Dak Prescott this week at practice.
Eagles had Prescott here during the spring. "Liked everything about him," Pederson said.

Pederson: Wentz and Prescott are proven winners, leaders, protect the football. Both athletic.

Both rookies have taken the NFL by storm, and you could argue both could be finalists for the Rookie of the Year Award. Prescott’s one hindrance in the Rookie of the Year chase? The fact there is another rookie candidate in his backfield, Ezekiel Elliott, who could steal some votes.
