Ourlads' Profile:

2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about CONNOR COOK: Michigan State, 6040 217 4.78. Three-year starter from Hinckley, OH. The all-time winningest quarterback in Spartan history. Played in a pro style run first offense. He does a good job of managing the offense by avoiding or getting out of bad plays that can get you beat. A crafty veteran with good reads, touch, and accuracy. Steps up into the pocket and buys time. He is solid under pressure and bounces around in the pocket. Played through injuries this past season. Protects the ball. Maintains accuracy on the move. Stands strong in the pocket and can take hits. Good velocity on intermediate and short passes with accuracy between the hash marks and on the perimeter. Demonstrates feel in the pocket. Well schooled to recognize and feel pressure. A good play action and drop back developmental quarterback. Racked up a 34-5 record as a starter. Smooth and quick release. Strong lower body. NFL ball clubs will like his size and his ability to play within the pocket. The major question mark on Cook is his accuracy. He misses a lot of throws high. He has never thrown for over 58.7% in any season. Also question his decision making under pressure as well as ball security issues under blitz pressure. Struggles to throw the ball through passing lanes that open up. He gets passes batted down. Cook’s body language and leadership is being vetted by teams due to not being elected a team captain. Is he a take charge individual who steps up and leads a group of teammates? How does he get along with people in general as well as teammates? The last two red flags may be the most important to lead an NFL franchise. 2015 stats: 229/408, 3131 yds, 56.1%, 24 TD, 7 INT, 56 yds rushing, 136.5 QB rating. Ball velocity 50 mph. OSR:12/ 18. Fourth/fifth round. (A-33, H-9 3/4, SS-4.28, VJ-33).
