Anonymous NFL scout: Ohio State DB Eli Apple 'can't cook'

The 2016 NFL Draft starts Thursday night in Chicago.

With only hours remaining before Roger Goodell takes the stage, the always-present anonymous sources are spewing the usual negative comments, many of which are laughable.

The latest: One anonymous scout questioning Ohio State defensive back Eli Apple’s life skills, going as far as to say that he “can’t cook.” Read more about Apple’s scouting report here.

If true, what exactly does it have to do with Apple’s ability to cover a receiver, make an open-field tackle or be a good teammate?

Nothing at all. And, based on the Twitter reaction to the odd scouting report, the scout is wrong.

There’s this.

And there’s this.

For what it’s worth, Ezekiel Elliott vouches for Apple’s cooking.
