Is Dak Prescott making decisions in the Dallas Cowboys‘ War Room?
While the 2022 NFL Draft has been full of exciting moments for budding athletes, one noteworthy one came when the Cowboys quarterback made a a pre-draft inquiry to the team’s newly drafted wide receiver, Jalen Tolbert, days before the draft selection.
Tolbert recently spoke on the Draft Show on 105.3 The Fan in his first interview as a Dallas Cowboy.

“I answered, and he was like Jalen, and I was like, ‘What’s up?’ And he’s like, ‘This is Dak Prescott. How are you doing? For a minute it was like a surreal moment because I never knew quarterbacks would call prospects, but it was an awesome, great experience,” the wide receiver detailed.
NFL DRAFT: FRIDAY NIGHT FINALLY TURNS SPOTLIGHT ON THE QUARTERBACKS
Dallas Morning News’ Michael Gehlken reports that Tolbert spoke with Prescott for about 20 minutes where the WR was surprised to receive the call and said, “I think we immediately vibed on the phone, connected right there.”
The Cowboys chose the South Alabama standout as a No. 88 overall draft pick in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft on Friday, just two days after the receiver got the call from Prescott.
While Jerry Jones has the final say in all prospects, the phone call between Prescott and the receiver reflects the work the QB is putting into the relationships with future prospects.
