Football michiganstate.247sports.com —  The first night of the 2016 NFL Draft ended and Connor Cook was left waiting, despite some late first-round possibilities that could have led to his selection. The buzz of possibility began when the Denver Broncos traded up to the No. 26 pick. It was a quarterback for Denver, just not Cook as his wait continued. And when the San Francisco 49ers jumped to No. 28 over the Arizona Cardinals at No. 29, it gave another possibility that Cook would be selected.
