Mississippi State Bulldogs in the NFL: Week 9 Report

Another former Mississippi State Bulldog has joined the ranks in the NFL. The Bulldog legacy grows week by week, and will continue to grow until the end.

Without a doubt, every time you hear that a Mississippi State alum has joined an NFL roster you get some more pride. Pride in the program. Pride in what we have been through as fans and family. Now we use the term “family” at Mississippi State in the truest form possible. Do we have a few crazies? Sure. Every family does. But we still love them, and would do anything for them.

Blaine Clausell has just signed with the Washington Redskins. He will join fellow Mississippi State alum Preston Smith in the locker room. Clausell was previously with the Baltimore Ravens on their practice squad. He makes the 15th player to be on the active roster for an NFL team.

Dak Prescott continued to amaze people in Dallas. The 4th-round pick, and starter for the Dallas Cowboys organization, continued his tear through the NFL. This time, however, his victim was the Cleveland Browns. Prescott ended up with the highest total QBR of any quarterback this past week, the second time this season of accomplishing that feat.
