No. 4: Connor Cook

Most of the draft experts had Michigan State quarterback Connor Cook as their No. 1 quarterback. He dropped a bit to most of the experts because he had a bad opening day vs Western Michigan. However, he’s still among the top three quarterback prospects to the same experts that already had him high.

I actually never had him that high because I didn’t really like what I saw from him last year. And his 48 percent completion percentage against Western Michigan solidified my concerns about him. He did pick it up against Oregon but that’s not the Oregon that was in the college playoffs last year.

I believe he’s on the overrated side because of his size and arm strength, two of the more overrated traits scouts covet. Cook gets a little too spooked in the pocket for me and it throws his mechanics off. His decision making under pressure and propensity to stare down his intended target puts him at No. 4.

Next: No. 3
