Raiders trade up to take QB Cook in fourth round

CHICAGO (AP) — Connor Cook is the winningest quarterback in Michigan State history. Andrew Billings is coming off a dominant season on Baylor's defensive line.

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

Cook watched as six quarterbacks came off the board before he was selected by Oakland with the second pick of the fourth round on Saturday, and Billings tumbled all the way to Cincinnati at No. 122 after it looked as if he could be a first-round pick.

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.

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