(WMC) -

Before they head to the draft, star quarterbacks will participate in John Gruden’s QB Camp.

Two of the Mid-South’s beloved quarterbacks will participate in Gruden’s QB Camp: Memphis’ Paxton Lynch and Mississippi State’s Dak Prescott.

Those two will be joined by Michigan State’s Connor Cook, California’s Jared Goff, Penn State’s Christian Hackenberg, Ohio State’s Cardale Jones and North Dakota State’s Carson Wentz.

Lynch is projected by many to be a first-round draft pick in April’s NFL Draft.

Prescott is projected to be a mid-round pick, falling anywhere between the second and fifth rounds.

Gruden commented on his choices for the popular ‘QB Camp,’ which begins April 12 on ESPN.

On Paxton Lynch: 

“Lynch is one of the biggest quarterbacks you’ll find. He was a single-wing quarterback in high school who wasn’t really recruited by many programs. What he’s done at Memphis is amazing to me – puts them in a bowl game, has them nationally ranked. He’s come a long way in a short period of time. He’s got a real upside.”

On Dak Prescott: 

“Prescott is perhaps the No. 1 dual-threat quarterback this year. He can hurt you running or passing. He’s done it in a very difficult conference, and he’s won at a place where a lot of quarterbacks haven’t. I’ve spent some time with him before this process and he’s a bright-eyed, eager, confident talent that needs to be in the right place, but he can play.”

Lynch and Prescott were two of the top quarterbacks in the country in 2015, with Lynch earning a spot on the American Athletic Conference first team. Prescott earned himself the spot of Senior Bowl MVP in January.
