Dak Prescott has a better chance at reaching the Hall Of Fame when his career is all said and done than Carson Wentz, at least according to Bill Barnwell.

Barnwell projected the future Hall of Famers for all 32 NFL teams in his latest article for, putting Wentz in the "Work to do (10-39%)" category and Prescott in the "In the running (40-69%)" category.

Prescott won Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2016 and Barnwell notes, "Of the 35 Hall of Fame-eligible players who have won that trophy since the merger, 11 are in the Hall of Fame, and that number will rise in the years to come."

For Wentz, Barnwell writes, "Eagles fans will be furious, but the reality is that Wentz has made one Pro Bowl and hasn't won a playoff game or led the league in a major statistical category (outside of fumbles) during his first four seasons."

As for the Eagles' future Hall Of Famers as a whole, Barnwell has Jason Peters listed as the most likely at 70-99%. Jason Kelce and Fletcher Cox are in the 40-69% category, while Zach Ertz joins Wentz in the "work to do" 10-39% category.

The Cowboys currently possess three practical shoe-ins, according to Barnwell, as he placed Ezekiel Elliott, Zack Martin and Tyron Smith in the 70-99% likelihood range. Amari Cooper is in the same section as Prescott, at 40-69%, while the defense is represented heavily in the "work to do" category with DeMarcus Lawrence, Gerald McCoy and Leighton Vander Esch.

Prescott was recently voted a top 50 player in the NFL, while Wentz was left off the top 100 list completely.

Both quarterbacks are 27-years-old and both are entering their fifth NFL season. They have been pinned against each other since their rookie years and nothing is changing any time soon, as both have gotten off to excellent starts to their careers.
