Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott took home Most Outstanding Player of the 2016 Senior Bowl.
By Robby Sabo
In what turns out to be the final showcase for College ballers before they go onto the next level in the NFL, the Senior Bowl saw Mississippi State quarterback shine most.
His team, the South All-Stars, beat the North All-Stars by a final of 27-16 in the 2016 Senior Bowl. Prescott took home Most Outstanding Player honors as he threw for 61 yards and a touchdown on 7-of-10 passing. He also rushed for 13 yards.
One player who was discussed much the week leading up to the game was North Dakota State quarterback Carson Wentz, but he couldn’t muster any scoring drives on the day (6-of-10 for 50 yards).
NDSU QB Carson Wentz looks good early. As one scout told me this week "I came here skeptical, I'm leaving impressed"

Noah Spence, best defensive prospect at Senior Bowl, with the sack of Kevin Hogan. He made that look pretty easy.

Eastern Kentucky pass rusher Noah Spence– booted from Ohio State for off the field stuff — has been the best pass rusher all week.

The New York Jets will certainly have a strong eye towards an edge rusher during the draft.
Here are some other relevant tweets from the day:

Jeff Driskel w/ game-ending TD pass. Not only threw off his back foot, threw off his back heel. 29 yds to Burbridge in 27-16 loss to South.
