When asked how Smith compensates for his lack of height, Henning laughs.

"With a 43-inch vertical jump," he says. "You're talking about a guy who can dunk backwards. He explodes to the ball, even when he's trying to jump over people. He gets tall in a hurry."
That's 7" more vertical range than Cooks.

Cooks is a lot closer to Austin than he is to Steve Smith. He's a slot guy and you would be a fool to try to depend on him as an outside #1 type receiver. Let him play in the slot and work in space where he's best at. Sure you can line him up outside, but he's going to have limited success there. You want him facing the 3rd best corner on the other team, not the top 2 cover guys.
