Overview:

Cook left Florida State as the all-time leading rusher in school history, he ended up with with over 4400 yards, he was a scoring machine with 46 rushing touchdowns, and was their workhorse back with over 680 rushes. He has good vision, he is a tough runner, a good pass catching back, and a dynamic play maker on offense. He also makes defenders miss with ease, he breaks tackles with ease, he powers over defenders, and is a good blocking back. He is a bit undersized in the height department, but his explosiveness, and productivity make Cook one of the most desirable backs in this years class. With that said, I expect Cook to be a 1st-round pick. I should not that Cook has had some off the field issues in the past, which may end up seeing his draft stock drop down in the early part of day 2.
