There must be a line outside the office today as just minutes after the Raiders announced they had signed seventh round pick Vadal Alexander, they locked in 4th round QB Connor Cook.

The former Michigan State signal caller was selected by the Raiders at 100 overall after sending one of their 5th round picks (154) to Cleveland to move up from 114 in the fourth round. They saw a QB who was 34-5 at a big time program available on the third day and made the move up to get him.

In total, Cook played in 43 games with 39 starts over four seasons for the Spartans, totaling 9,194 passing yards on 673-of-1,170 passing (58 percent), 71 touchdowns and 22 interceptions. He owns MSU's all-time wins record for a quarterback and set school records for passing yards, TD's, and attempts. He also tied a school record with 10 300-yard passing games.

That leaves five remaining draft picks to be signed: Karl Joseph (1st round), Jihad Ward (2nd round), Shilique Calhoun (3rd round), DeAndre Washington (5th round), and Cory James  (6th round).
