Raiders trade up to take QB Cook in fourth round

CHICAGO (AP) — Connor Cook set Michigan State records for passing touchdowns and yards through the air while becoming the winningest quarterback in school history.

It didn't mean very much in the NFL draft.

Cook was selected by Oakland with the second pick of the fourth round Saturday, with the Raiders making a trade with Cleveland to jump ahead of Dallas out of fear the Cowboys might be looking for a potential successor to Tony Romo.

"I'm glad I found a home," Cook said. "A little bit of a wait. I'm glad the whole process is over."

WATCH: Parents name children after Pat Tillman

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Doctors told Jeff Okrepkie and Stephanie Ottolini not to expect children. Though her cervical cancer had been in remission since 2012, the odds of conception were minimal.

So when Stephanie became pregnant, the couple wanted a special name for what they considered a miracle baby.

Girls' names came quickly: Quinn, Arabella and Olivia.
