Former Michigan State QB Connor Cook fell all the way to Oakland Raiders in the fourth round with the No. 100 overall pick. It was quite the fall for one of the most prolific QBs in Spartan history, and according to one NFC scout, it was caused by his teammates.
“His teammates haven’t spoken well of him through the draft process,” one high-ranking NFC scout said. “Just not a leader and doesn’t have top QB intangibles.”
The same scout said there wasn’t an isolated incident that scared teams away from Cook. Instead, it was an overall attitude issue.
“He will get drafted and play,” the scout said. “He has talent.”
Connor Cook didn't endear himself to Ohio State fans when he seemed to brush off Archie Griffin during the trophy presentation at the 2014 Big Ten Championship, but Mark Dantonio defended his QB Tuesday:

The football is in Connor's court now.
