This is exactly what the other 31 NFL teams need: another lethal target for Drew Brees to throw at. Rookie wide receiver Brandin Cooks is turning heads at the Saints training camp, according to a report by Mike Triplett of ESPN:
“Somehow, the dynamic playmaker keeps managing to top himself with each passing day. Among his other highlights on Saturday, Cooks torched cornerback Rod Sweeting with a sharp cut for a touchdown of about 25-30 yards, leaped up to reel in a deep ball behind cornerback Patrick Robinson at the 1-yard line and broke a big gain on a kickoff return…”
Once he gets in space he has proved very dangerous. In this video you can see some of Cook’s stunning elusiveness:
You just can’t teach that kind of dexterity and athleticism.
During his Senior year at Oregon State Cooks put up over 1700 receiving yards and scored 16 touchdowns.
