An NFL scout who spoke with the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel doesn't believe Michigan State QB Connor Cook "can lead you to the promised land."
"It's a tell-tale sign when your teammates don't like you," the scout said, "and I know they don't. [Cook]'s good, but that position is more than physical attributes. It's also leadership. Is he going to lead your guys? I don't think so." With the draft now just a week away, it looks like Cook has failed to scrub himself free from character questions. Just last week, TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline relayed that the 6-foot-4, 217-pound gunslinger "[came] across as flippant and cavalier" during interviews. Another scout who spoke with the Journal-Sentinel absolutely savaged Cook -- for every aspect of his being. "He stinks," the scout said, adding, "Average arm, average mobility, average field vision. Not a leader. Not aware." That scout went so far as to say that if Cook is drafted in the first round, the offending GM should be fired "right after they pick him." We have issues with Cook as an NFL prospect, too, but wow.
