No father wants to see their kid’s NFL dreams put on hold.

Chris Cook, the father of former Michigan State quarterback Connor Cook, is no different. Watching his son go from a possible first-round pick all the way to a fourth-round selection was obviously a frustrating process.

Chris Cook had to hear all about the “captaincy” and “leadership” issues that anonymous scouts said held his son back from being drafted as a franchise quarterback. He took to Twitter to fight back against those anonymous claims.

It began on Friday afternoon, when he retweeted something that questioned Todd McShay’s accuracy as a draft analyst:

It was McShay who surprised a lot of people when he said in December that scouts had serious concerns about Cook’s personality.

Cook’s dad retweeted another criticism of McShay after the first round concluded:

Cook didn’t get picked on Friday night, either. So after he was finally selected by the Raiders at No. 100 overall on Saturday, everybody had the question on their minds.

Why did he really fall so far?

The Detroit News did a story that cited — you guessed it — anonymous scouts. They gave some of the quotes that surfaced throughout the draft process. They said that teammates “haven’t spoken well of him” even though nobody has said anything but glowing remarks about Cook on the record.

Cook’s dad wasn’t pleased that once again, anonymous scouts were the ones who had the final say in his son’s draft stock:

Cook probably shared a lot of the sentiments of other Michigan State fans who saw Cook lead the Spartans to 34 wins, including two B1G Championships, a Cotton Bowl victory, a Rose Bowl victory and a College Football Playoff appearance.

Whether it was fair treatment of Cook or not, the draft is in the books. He has a new NFL home, and if the chip on his shoulder is as big as the one on his dad’s, Cook will squash those leadership rumors in a hurry.
