The Connor Cook saga is finally over.
With the No. 100 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the Oakland Raiders traded up with the Cleveland Browns to select the former Michigan State Spartans quarterback. Oakland traded one spot ahead of the Dallas Cowboys to make the selection.
It is an interesting pick, considering the Raiders are currently led by Derek Carr, but it is one that could bring the franchise value in a few years.
Great pick for Raiders. Some smart team was going to take Cook regardless of present need. They'll flip him for higher pick in few years…

The pick was met with mixed reaction, but the Raiders did what they felt was best.
It will be interesting to see whether the Cowboys, who were expected to be a potential landing spot for Cook, will look to address the quarterback position later today.
