Cowboys meet with TCU QB Max Duggan; Dak Backup?

The Dallas Cowboys are doing their homework at the NFL Scouting Combine, and most recently, it could be for a potential backup, or even future replacement for QB, Dak Prescott.

At the combine on Friday, TCU Horned Frogs quarterback Max Duggan revealed that he has met with the Cowboys, and that he would love to stay home and play for Dallas.

“I get to meet with them and just go over some stuff: et to know me, get to know them, go over some ball, just start building that relationship,” Duggan said. “I thought it was a good meeting… It would be special to stay home and be part of the Cowboys franchise.”

Duggan is coming off of a stellar season, in which he finished as a Heisman finalist, and took the Horned Frogs to a national championship game appearance.

Duggan completed 63.7 percent of his passes for 3,698 yards and 32 touchdowns, with eight interceptions and a 159.3 quarterback rating.

In his career, Duggan threw for 9,618 yards and 73 touchdowns and 28 picks.

And Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy likes what he sees out of Duggan as well.

“I just love the way he plays,” McCarthy said. “In the games I saw, you’re never out of the game with Max. I think that’s a huge characteristic as a QB that you have to have in this league. You have to win those games. You see it every year in the playoffs.”

Duggan also rushed for 555 yards and six touchdowns on 130 carries in 2022, and rushed for 1,856 yards and 28 touchdowns throughout his four-year career.

Numbers that aren’t to dissimilar from the current Cowboys QB, Prescott, who threw for 9,376 yards and 70 touchdowns with 23 picks, and ran for 2,521 yards and 41 scores at Mississippi State.

The Cowboys would eventually pick Prescott in the fourth round.

Oddly enough, most NFL Draft experts have Duggan slotted as a Day 3 (Rounds 4-7) pick.

With that in mind, it is easy to see why the Cowboys are so intrigued, and perhaps, looking a Duggan an eye on the future.
