(NFL.com) Brandin Cooks everything Saints expected-- and more

21 posts in this topic

Yep, another Cooks article. Looks like media is loving this guy

Another day at New Orleans Saints training camp, another Brandin Cooks highlight reel.

The first-round rookie has been stealing the show with his dynamic playmaking ability since camp opened. After his six-catch performance on Saturday, Cooks picked up a trail of admirers.

it's funny because if both WRs were there when the Panthers selected they would have taken KB over Cooks

It's not a slight on Cookie but the best he will be is a Golden Tate. That's his ceiling

Pretty sure Zod said otherwise. Also, Saints got the inch taller Brandon Coleman who has been doing as well as Benjamin the past few days after a rough OTA.

The panthers board for WRs went Evans Watkins OBJ and a tie between Lee and KB. KB was that low bc he was raw. People can say otherwise but they'd be incorrect

It's incredibly hard for me to believe that anybody had Evans above Watkins and Lee above Cooks.

Exactly. And, as Jimbo Fisher said, he likely would have been a top 3 pick after another year of refinement. Can you imagine a 5'10, 180 pound top 3 prospect? GTFO.

meh

It's the measurables like height the panthers were putting a premium on. That's why Cookie was so low

Understandable, just somewhat faulty I think.

Golden Tate? Come on man. You can't be serious? Golden Tate isn't near as fast or quick as Cooks. That's a joke.

    • Anything I do Panthers related by default. My poop is Panthers related.
    • I like MKG, we just have to understand what he is.  And that's a defensive stopper and rebounder.  He can be a solid starter on a championship level team, but it has to be in a situation like Dennis Rodman was in with Chicago.  He has to be surrounded with dynamic scorers that can compensate for his lack of scoring so he can focus on his defense and getting key rebounds.  Otherwise, his best fit is probably coming off the bench. The problem on this team is that we don't have the scoring threats to offset his deficiencies.  Even though Kemba is a good scorer, he's not a guy that can easily put up points in bunches.  He's probably a natural 15-18 point guy, not the 25-30 point guy MKG needs.
