Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is the latest athlete to be part of one of Colin Cowherd's trademark analogies.

Cowherd loves comparing things, no matter how outlandish some of the similarities may seem. Today on "

"Dak Prescott is like art. His stock went up when he didn't play."

">The Herd," he compared Prescott to art work. "Dak Prescott is like art. His stock went up when he didn't play," Cowherd said. "The longer he's around, he's just worth more." Cowherd made this comparison because of PFF's recent list of the top 50 players in the NFL. Through the first 40 players unveiled, Prescott is one of three quarterbacks. Cowherd is guessing there will be three more QBs in the final 10, meaning PFF ranks Prescott the No. 6 signal caller in football. Because he personally would rate Prescott around the 12th-best quarterback in football, Cowherd is arguing that the season-ending injury Prescott suffered last year actually raised his stock in the eyes of evaluators.

In a way, Cowherd is correct. The Cowboys fell apart after Prescott broke his leg last season, as they didn't have their star quarterback to shoulder the load on offense and carry a shoddy defense.

As for Prescott's standing among his quarterbacking peers, we think anywhere just outside the top five is fair for the sixth-year signal caller. He's behind Mahomes, Rodgers, Brady and Russ for sure, and probably Josh Allen if he's going to continue playing like he did last season.

After that, you can make a case for slotting Prescott as high as No. 6 or as low as No. 8 or 9. We don't have an issue with where PFF has him ranked.
