Dakota Prukop. Wow, now that’s a name from Vandergrift HS in Austin, Tx. So Prukop played college ball at Montana St. He threw for 2557 yards and 18 TD passes, while rushing for 946 yards on the ground and 14 TDs after being named starter in 2014 over 8 starts. Dakota Prukop returned again for 2015 and passed for 3025 yards and 28 TDs. He also carried the ball for 797 yards and 11 TDs rushing. He’d transfer to Oregon in 2016, but was benched during the 6th contest of the year, after putting up 1214 yards and 8 TD passes. After going unselected during the 2017 draft, Prukop signed with the Toronto Argonauts of the CFL.
He earned his way onto the roster after an impressive preseason debut, leading the Argos to a win throwing a late TD pass. As the 3rd string QB, Prukop didn’t really see any significant QB time in 2017, rather he saw action on special teams lodging 6 tackles. He then fought his way up the roster again during camp to 3rd string in 2018.
River. Cracraft. What a memorable and original name! The WSU wide receiver went on to slide into second place on the career receiving charts for the Cougars with 218 receptions, 2,701 yards, and 20 TDs, despite suffering a season ending ACL injury during his Senior campaign. Teams shied away from River during the 2017 Draft, and he’d go unselected.
Cracraft rehabbed and got a nibble from the Patriots who brought him in for a workout in September of 2017. In October he was added to the Broncos practice squad. A few days later he was waived by the team due to an undisclosed injury, but by the end of the year, he was back on Denver’s practice squad for a second go-round. He’d again not make the squad in 2018, but earned another shot at Denver’s practice squad.
Georgia State wide receiver Robert Davis was a 4 year starter for the Panthers. He put together a good body of work over his time there with 222 reeptions for 3391 yards and 17 touchdowns. At 6’3″, 219, Davis had a pretty good pre-draft workout and snuck into the back end of a few teams’ draft boards. Eventually he was selected by the Washington Redskins with their 6th round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, who are confident that they can groom him into a pro grade talent. After spending 2017 on the practice squad, Robert was injured during training camp and was placed on injured reserve for 2018.
