Connor Cook Not Drafted in First Round
Jared Goff and Carson Wentz went one and two overall, as expected by most. Some mock drafts had Cook going to the Denver Broncos at #31 overall, they needed a quarterback after the departure of Brock Osweiler and the retirement of Peyton Manning.
So when the Broncos made a trade with Seattle to move up in the draft to #26, the writing seemed to be on the wall that they would take a quarterback.
They did, but it was Paxton Lynch out of Memphis, not Michigan State's Connor Cook.
31 picks gone by the way side and Connor Cook remains on the board and is considered Mel Kiper's "Best QB available" heading into round 2.
