guess its really no surprise to most B1G fans that Conner Cook hasn’t been picked yet. And all these other B1G playas were picked before him. And some of them aren’t really all that well known. The shocker of course is hackenberg gettin picked by the jets,jets,jets. What a joke. No wonder they’ll never get back to the SB.
