Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones recently described Dak Prescott as somewhere between Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff and Carolina Panthers star Cam Newton, via Jon Machota of SportsDay.

“I think we have a dimension in Dak with him being able to run the ball, you saw what Cam Newton does with that,” Jones said Tuesday morning on 105.3 The Fan's Shan and RJ show [KRLD-FM]. “We've got a quarterback that is somewhere between [Jared Goff] and Cam Newton. He can do some of what both of those guys do. You're going to see it,” he continued.

Jones' Cowboys got a taste of how you utilize an athletic quarterback in their 16-8 loss to the Panthers in Week 1. Jones believes that his team can make more use of Prescott's physical abilities in the future to maximize scoring opportunities. Prescott had five carries for 19 yards in the game. Newton basically doubled his offensive production on the ground, running the ball over twice as much for 58 yards and a score.

Neither of the two quarterbacks passed for a touchdown, but both but put tremendous pressure on opposing defenses with their mobility. Jones appears to be confident that Prescott can be more effective as a passer than Newton, but not quite as good as Jared Goff of the Los Angeles Rams.

Jones doesn't call the plays, but if the Cowboys' coaching staff can create some new options for Prescott, they will only make their offense more dangerous. Even if they don't put new plays in immediately, they'll need to bring vigor into Week 2 against the New York Giants.
