Richardson | email@example.com ALLEN PARK -- Former Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins is doing everything he can to impress NFL scouts before April's draft. Cousins had a standout career at Michigan State. He completed 5-of-11 passes for 115 yards, one touchdown and an interception during last month's Senior Bowl. Cousins will participate in next week's NFL Scouting Combine with hopes of impressing potential employees. He will have another chance to impress scouts at Michigan State's Pro Day. After watching Cousins perform in person and on tape, NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock believes the quarterback will make it in the NFL. Holding a clipboard.
