Gruden: Cook is 'Perhaps the best quarterback in this year’s draft'

B1G INTERVIEW - Michigan State QB Connor Cook talks with BTN following Michigan State's championship victory.

Who is the best quarterback in this year’s NFL Draft class?

That has been a highly contested question as there isn’t a true “slam dunk” answer to that this year.

Former Michigan State quarterback Connor Cook is one of seven quarterbacks taking part in Jon Gruden’s QB Camp series this year.

Gruden had some high praise for Cook, calling him “perhaps the best quarterback in this year’s draft.”

“What stands out the most is his experience,” Gruden said about Cook. “He’s mature; he’s a fifth-year senior. He’s been in a pro-style system. He’s got size and athleticism, and he’s willing to be a gunslinger and make some aggressive throws down the field. This kid isn’t completing bubble screens and quick screens; he goes after you down the field. He’s got NFL talent. He’s gonna be I think perhaps the best quarterback in this year’s draft.

What do you think, Big Ten fans?
