2. Connor Cook

No quarterback in the Big Ten is as talented and experienced as Connor Cook. Fact. Although Ohio State’s J.T. Barrett is a close second in terms of talent, in my opinion, Cook takes the cake as the conference’s top QB because he’s going into his third season as starter.

Besides being on the verge of breaking multiple school titles, including touchdown passes and yards, Cook has put together one of the best offenses in the nation, leading the Spartans to the seventh-best scoring offense and 11th-best total offense, in terms of yards, last season.

Cook has really come into his own over the past two seasons and has gotten considerably better each year. If he can improve his accuracy this season, the senior quarterback has a serious chance of winning the Heisman.

Going 23-3 as a starter for MSU, there’s no question that much of the success over the past two years can be attributed to his ability to lead and learn on the fly.

Last season, Cook passed for 3,214 yards, 24 touchdowns and eight interceptions while his completion rate remained constant from the previous season at 58 percent. He knows how to win and he’s as calm under pressure as any QB we have seen in the green and white.

Connor Cook will be a main reason as to why MSU will win it all in 2015.
