Raiders trade up to take QB Cook in 4th round of NFL draft (Apr 30, 2016)

CHICAGO (AP) Connor Cook is the winningest quarterback in Michigan State history. Andrew Billings is coming off a dominant season on Baylor’s defensive line.

It didn’t mean very much in the NFL draft.

Cook watched as six quarterbacks came off the board before he was selected by Oakland with the second pick of the fourth round on Saturday, and Billings tumbled all the way to Cincinnati at No. 122 after it looked as if he could be a first-round pick.

”Anytime you see another quarterback get drafted in front of you, it hurts,” Cook said. ”I’m a competitor. Obviously, I think I’m one of the best quarterbacks in this draft class, but nothing is ever easy and nothing is ever perfect.”

Dallas then grabbed a quarterback later in the round when it took Mississippi State’s Dak Prescott at No. 135.

The 6-foot-4 Cook set school records with 9,194 yards passing and 71 touchdown passes for the Spartans. But questions about his 57.5 completion percentage and leadership skills pushed him down the board.
