NFLmocks.com has us drafting.....
 
#23 – Kansas City Chiefs – Brandin Cooks – WR – Oregon State

Andy Reid loves receivers who can run and few do it better in this 2014 NFL mock draft. Brandin Cooks doesn’t have much height to offer at 5’10″ but his speed, agility, hands and vision make him something the Kansas City Chiefs don’t have, and should want.

I was amazed just looking at Cooks and Bekham's combine video. Cooks was playing so much faster than everyone else (watch from 18s mark).

He was so quick that he dropped the ball . . . He looks so damn tiny and has such short arms though. We'll still need to draft a potential #1 WR either later in this draft or next year, to be groom to replace Bowe in 2-3 years.

Most of the mock drafts let us take a WR in the first round. I actually prefer to wait on WRs. I believe the 2nd tier WRs after Watkins and Evans are not that far apart from 3rd tier WRs.

I am confident Andy Reid will be able to find a very good one in the 2nd or even 3rd round.

Better than a OG but I think I prefer Beckham.

size matters. It made a difference to the packers as well. Its no surprise that the top NFL WR over the last 2yrs have been well over 6' tall.

Dorsey obviously likes tall corners (to match up with tall wrs). It just makes sense that he wouldnt waste premium picks on short wrs.

Great first post...minus the whole 2nd rnd pick that we do not have at the moment.

Welcome to CP. Hope you have thick skin cause some of these guys can be brutal. I agree that the Chiefs can find a wr in later rounds. It wasn't the offense that lost that playoff game. I'm hoping for either a pass rusher or cb in the first.

It's what worries me about Cooks as well in terms of his long term success potential at the next level as a true #1 WR. I don't think he's that guy. However, with Bowe on the roster, I don't think he needs to be that guy and would provide the team with a Randall Cobb/DeSean Jackson level guy.

It's obvious that Reid doesn't mind that type of receiver in his system as McCluster was basically the featured receiver for the entire season due to Bowe's inability to focus/be in shape/catch the ball/run routes/etc. until the final game. I think that Cooks is every bit the receiver that McCluster was in this offense and has substantially more burst and seperation than McC.

Now, I don't think that Beckham has the height limitations of Cooks due to his ridiculously long arms and huge hands and vertical. I do think he's got the capability of being a true #1 WR.

However, I wouldn't bitch if Cooks was the pick. He's a hell of a receiver and has great focus and instincts on the field. He uses his hands well to catch the ball away from his body and high points well. He also has very good feet and hips and turns into the ball well as well as gets himself right and upfield in a hurry. He'd be a huge boon to the offense. And they did attempt to sign another guy who could be considered a smaller, fast receiver in Sanders.

They could do worse than Cooks with that pick and he'd be a player that would immediately contribute.
