Breakdown: (10 minute highlight and 1 full game)
I first received a highlight tape of Mike and I feel that a true evaluation cannot be done from a highlight film. So I requested a full game to be sent and this is my evaluation based on both the highlight tape and full game.
There are two things that stand out to me when evaluating Cook. The first thing that stands out to me on film is his speed. He is a mobile QB who plays mainly out of the shotgun. He rolls out a lot to utilize his speed. What impresses me is his accuracy. It is tough to complete 61% of your passes especially coming from a QB who rarely sits in the pocket. His size/speed combo show intangibles that many college coaches look for. Every college coach is looking for big kids that can run
The second thing that stands out
about Cook is his intellect. Mike boasts nearly a 4.0 GPA and his coach relies
on his intelligence greatly.
Now to his mechanics. I would say that Mike is good but not great at a lot of things fundamentally. I think he throws a decent ball, has decent arm strength and a good throwing motion. He has a pretty quick release and shows solid footwork and mechanics. I would like to see him go through his passing progressions a little better as he is quick to tuck the ball and run.
Cook currently has offers from
Cornell and the
I also think it is possible that Cook could be asked to move to the secondary. He has very good speed and is reportedly up to 205. He showed good toughness on tape and I don't think this transition is out of the question.
