That doesn't sound that impressive until you realize that Cooks is one of the shorter WRs at the Combine. Watkins has 3" on him and 4" longer arms, yet had a 34" vertical. Cooks is fast and shifty. He can also go up and get the ball in traffic.
So if Cooks jumps 36", his reach and catch radius would still be considerably smaller than Watkins, so what was the point in posting that? Lol. If he had a 40" vertical and Watkins only jumped 30", then you could make a case. But a 2" difference in their verticals doesn't make up for about 8" in reach.
