2. Connor Cook – Michigan State

This is where we get into legitimate prospects. Cook has been developing nicely throughout his college career with the Spartans. Many believed he would come out for the NFL Draft last year, but the junior decided to hone his craft one more season at East Lansing. Cook does not have eye-popping stats, but he does play in a pro-style system that should help speed up his learning curve at the next level.

Cook is a three-year starter at Michigan State. In 2013, he completed 58.7 percent of his throws. In the subsequent two seasons, that rate is 58.1 and 57.4. This is the biggest question mark with Cook. His accuracy is terrific at times – especially facing duress – but at others poor. Cook does take care of the ball, though, only tossing 16 interceptions over the past three campaigns, including only two this season. Cook threw for a career-high 3,214 yards last season, and has 1,672 this year with 13 touchdowns. At 6-foot-4 and 220 pounds, Cook gives you perfect size and a quarterback who is willing to stand in the face of the rush.
