Rd 2, Pick 63 (31): RB James Cook, Georgia


Recommended Posts

I think I mocked Cook to the Bills in more than 75% of the mocks I did this Draft season. Granted it was in the 3rd Round, I figured they may trade up to the mid 3rd to secure him, but the way the WR's flew in this Draft I understand taking him here...

 

I absolutely LOVE Cook for this team...I just love the fit. He's arguably the best pass catching RB in this Draft with a twist...He can beat Defenses deep...4.42 speed, he's played in big games...and it may not be a big deal, but the NFL is a family business for him.

 

This is a luxury pick...it's a specific chess piece...But I don't think there is a single NFL Defense that is happy about the Bills adding James Cook to this Offense...Not one...B-)

Between the 2 yr $7M offer to JD McKissic & the 2nd round valuation for James Cook… Ken Dorsey has plans for that receiving back role #BillsMafia #KeepYourFastball

What this boils down to is we finally got a homerun hitter at RB. That 4.4 speed shows up in pads, not just in shorts. He also is a heck of a receiver out of the backfield. He will contribute this year. 

Now we just have to block it up for him!

Well his reaction on the video said otherwise. Regardless he’s a Bill and I wish this kid nothing but instant success with this offense 


Geezus you people over react and and force too much conspiracy theory stuff into everything.  
 

All evidence shows he’s excited to be here.  Stop pushing this false narrative

Likely he was told he was going to be drafted early.

He like Thurman will use that to fuel him.

Who the hell knows what happened on the video. For all we know someone acted out of line in his house around the time he got picked and thats why they were telling everyone to get out. Lets not just make the assumption that he hated going to the Bills, especially as he is saying the opposite now.

 

I like that Beane traded down and got the couple extra 6th round picks. Means that the Bills can get back into the 4th round or they can get some guys that will fill out their 90 man roster, works either way. Lets go get an OL, TE, or Speed WR in round 3.

Ok. Hope you're right.  He don't fit in my opinion. Probably more of an IR guy than his brother. Hall or Walker fit. Run Josh run. All you again pal

great post for only your 26th post. seems like a good number to walk away at. wishing IR on our 2nd rd pick because your legendary scouting is better than beane? draft really brings out the worst of our fanbase

Two punters to try out for job.  Coach McD loves competition.

How good would Patrick Mahomes be if his top 2 WR’s get hurt?  Tell me now how good KC’s back ups are.  Tell me there names first Scott.

Josh Gordon and Sky Moore… I’ll take that over Kumerow brotha😉

This kind of pick adds so much versatility to our RB room. Hall would be the only guy that I think would be a better fit but went far too early.  

Cook in the passing game is going to cause teams fits.

The NFL's next set of brothers

Cook is the younger brother of Minnesota Vikingsrunning back Dalvin Cook. He's about 10 pounds lighter and doesn't have the same physicality as his older brother. James Cook is a slashing runner and is adept at catching the ball out of the backfield. Buffalo hosts Minnesota in 2022.
