Proehl was Allen's personal coach before he started working with the panthers. Probably why Allen runs such great routes.

Cooks had a tough time against Oregon's CBs.  I don't feel like he is ready to step in and start and if he is truly slated to be a first rounder then that is problematic for me.

It's interesting how many of this forum wanted Tavon Austin last year but this year Cooks, an equal or better player, is all a sudden too small.

Cooks is fast.  Austin is absolutely electric.

110 yards isnt anything to be ashamed of.

Had a lot of tough drops and struggled to get separation.  I don't look at the stats to make a determination; I only look at the film I can find.

Austin might be but there is not a measurable that Cooks doesnt best Austin.

I was pretty high on Tavon last year but after seeing that small body get manhandled at the line of scrimmage by dbs I now see it is much easier to get these guys(not named Smitty) in space in college than it is in the NFL. I think if you have a creative OC (which we do not) it could work in certain packages.

Yeah but towards the end of the year Austin really started to go full retard.

Oh yea ...get these guys in space and you really have a threat. We have seen it from Percy Harvin as well. The two questions are designing plays to get them in space and durability.

That's one problem....combine doesn't show how a receiver works against the jam.  

 

I think with Underwood our need is bigger for a bigger receiver.  That's why I advocate for Benjamin.
