According to some NFL Draft rumors, the Cowboys and Dolphins are interested in Connor Cook.
The 2016 NFL Draft is less than two months away and Michigan State‘s Pro Day is in the books, leaving private workouts for teams as the last resort for Spartan players to prove themselves before the selection.
According to reports, the Miami Dolphins and Dallas Cowboys are both scheduling private workouts with MSU quarterback Connor Cook.

It’s interesting to see these two teams come forward and show interest in Cook — especially the Dolphins. Miami’s Ryan Tannehill passed for 4,208 yards and 24 touchdowns in 2015 and he’s just 27 years of age.
Dallas, on the other hand, is dealing with a constantly injured Tony Romo who’s 35 years old. The Cowboys’ interest in Cook isn’t nearly as surprising as the Dolphins, but it would be a huge market for the Spartan quarterback to join.
Miami has the No. 8 overall pick in this year’s NFL Draft while the Cowboys hold the fourth spot. Neither team would likely select Cook in the first round, although he’s projected as such, but he could be their early-second round selection.
Cook finished his career as Michigan State’s all time winningest quarterback as well as breaking the career passing yards and touchdowns marks. He led Michigan State’s 2015 senior class to the most wins in school history along with Rose and Cotton Bowl victories.
