Initial Reaction: What the #$#%, at no point in the draft process did I think this was even a possibility. So while it was a surprise, it was a pleasant one. Even with the signing of Murray in the offseason Cook has a real shot at being the Vikings starting running back week 1. He has a few character question marks and some injury concerns that scared teams off, but if he can get past that he could be the biggest steal of the entire damn draft. He is a home-run type player who puts up huge games. Has the speed, intangibles and playmaking ability to take it to the house each time he touches the ball. Could put up 1,000+ as a rookie.
Disclaimer: I agree you can’t grade a player before they even put a jersey on, but what fun would that be?
Grade for this pick?
