He can also go up and get the ball in traffic.

Compared to Tavon Austin last year (Cooks in red):

Tavon Austion, West Virginia
5'8", 174 lb., 30" arms, 9 1/8" hands
5'9 1/2", 189 lb., 30 1/2" arms, 9 5/8" hands
Bench: 14 reps
Bench: 16 reps
40: 4.34 seconds
40: 4.33 seconds
Vertical: 32.0"
Vertical: 36.0"
Broad Jump: 120.0"
Broad Jump: 120.0"
20 Yard Shuttle: 4.01 seconds
20 Yard Shuttle: 3.81 seconds
I'd prefer if our first round receiver did better than 400 yards receiving in his rookie year.

Cooks is an excellent pick for a team that already has weapons in the passing game. That's not us. We need a legit #1 receiver or tight end.

If we were able to trade back from 23 to say... 26 and pick up a 2nd rounder, then I could see us going Amaro in the first and coming back for a WR with the next pick.
