2016 NFL Mock Draft: Houston Texans Take Connor Cook In First Round

Houston gets a much-needed upgrade at quarterback in this mock, but what do Texans fans think about the fit and value of Connor Cook with the 22nd overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft?

Dan Kadar of Mocking the Draft has released his latest Monday morning Mock Draft, and once again he expects the Texans to take a new signal caller at the earliest possible opportunity.

22. Houston Texans: Connor Cook, QB, Michigan State

This may be a little early for Cook, but desperate teams will reach in the draft. The Texans needing a quarterback is one of the biggest needs in the whole league, so they may want to grab one early. In Cook they get a solid player whose career trajectory may be similar to that of Andy Dalton.

Cook has faced his fair share of criticism coming out of Michigan State, with some analysts questioning his accuracy, decision making, and even leadership qualities. Most pundits have him pegged as a late first to mid-second round pick, which falls right in line with his lukewarm comparisons to Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton.

What do you think, BRB? Would you be okay with Connor Cook being this franchise’s presumptive quarterback of the future? Sound off in the comments below.
