Connor Cook visits Buffalo Bills prior to 2016 NFL Draft

New, comments

Cook is a seasoned quarterback prospect that's considered a boom-or-bust proposition

Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com reports that Michigan State quarterback Connor Cook made a pre-draft visit with the Buffalo Bills this past weekend. (Look hard in that link; we promise it's in there.)

Cook, 23, is considered one of the top quarterback prospects available in the 2016 NFL Draft. The 6'4", 217-pound signal-caller had not previously been linked to the Bills much this spring, but if the team is bringing him in for a pre-draft visit, they likely have serious interest in him as a prospect.

A three-year starter at Michigan State, Cook finished his college career with 9,194 passing yards (at 7.9 yards per attempt) and a 71-to-22 touchdown-to-interception ratio on a 57.5 completion percentage. Considered a boom-or-bust player because of his spotty accuracy and willingness to take chances on throws, Cook is another player not ready to start, but who many consider a potential starter once he's wet his feet on the bench for a year or two.

We've added Cook's name to the (unconfirmed) list of Bills pre-draft visitors, which is now up to 18 names.
