Michigan State QB Connor Cook turns down Senior Bowl invite

The Michigan State Spartans ended their 2015 season by losing in blowout fashion against the Alabama Crimson Tide in the College Football Playoffs. Connor Cook closed his career with the Spartans and will go down as one of the best quarterbacks that Michigan State has ever had.

According to reports, Cook has decided to turn down an invite to play in the Senior Bowl.

No one can blame Cook for not wanting to risk an injury in that type of a game. He has already dealt with multiple nagging injuries throughout the 2015 season. Now is the time to try to get as healthy as possible for the NFL Draft process and workouts that will help determine where Cook will end up going in the draft.

Throughout the course of the 2015 college football season, Cook ended up recording solid numbers. He completed 56.1 percent of his passes for 3,131 yards, 24 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

He is going to be an NFL quarterback, there is no question about that statement. Whether he can become a starter at the next level is the only thing that can be questioned at this point in time.

Cook will be an intriguing name to follow along with throughout the draft process and into the 2016 NFL Draft.
