There may not be the fanfare of the commissioner announcing your name, but for guys picked in the later rounds of the NFL draft, the excitement is all the same.
Several area players will play on Sundays next season, including former Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott, who's taken in the fourth round by the Dallas Cowboys with the 135th overall pick.
Prescott set 38 school records with the Bulldogs and is one of two SEC quarterbacks to throw for at least 70 touchdowns and rush for at least 40 in a career.
