Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Cook clearly has the confidence and resilient attitude needed for the position and carries himself like a winner, something that rallies his teammates around him. He is a good-sized athlete for the position with enough mobility to handle the high volume of rollouts and bootlegs in the Spartan's pro-style attack.

Cook has a quick set up and delivery with an easy release and top-shelf arm strength to make all the throws, displaying an arsenal of frozen ropes. He has functional downfield touch and controls his velocity well with fast eyes to see the field well on the move.

WEAKNESSES: Tends to ignore his footwork and lower half mechanics and with 58.7-percent completions, he has room to improve his ball placement, especially downfield. He is too willing to throw off balance before his body and feet are set and attempts to ?arm? everything once moved from his original spot.

Cook doesn't consistently play loose and has the bad habit of playing rushed, allowing himself to get frantic and firing without locating defenders. He appears to be constantly in controlled panic mode, keeping his eyes downfield with a survivor mentality.

In the Super Bowl era, Michigan State hasn't had a quarterback drafted among the top-40 picks, but Cook is very capable of changing that fact. And his progression in 2014 will give us a better indicator of where he could land in the NFL Draft.

10/12/2014 - Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio likes his team's resilience. Now it's time to develop a knockout punch. Connor Cook threw three touchdown passes and Nick Hill ran for two scores Saturday, but No. 8 Michigan State still needed a late interception return for a touchdown to hold on 45-31 at Purdue. "When you look at our football games, we're playing well enough to get up by 21 points and that's the first thing you have to be able to do," Dantonio said. "When they come back, we somehow find a way at the end. I think that it makes us a stronger football team."

It's not supposed to be this difficult for the Spartans (5-1, 2-0), who have been the best team in the Big Ten over the last two seasons. One week ago, they nearly blew a 24-point fourth-quarter lead at home against Nebraska before surviving 27-22. This time, the defending Rose Bowl champs saw a seemingly safe 21-point fourth-quarter lead nearly disappear because of a defensive breakdown that led to one Purdue touchdown and a failed fake punt that the Boilermakers converted into another score. Purdue (3-4, 1-1) even got the ball back at its own 5-yard line with 2:57 to go and a chance to force overtime, but Darian Harris picked off an Austin Appleby pass and ran it back 15 yards to seal the win. - AP Sports
