That's 7" more vertical range than Cooks.
That's cool and all, Bob, but he jumped 34" at the Combine, 2" less than Cooks. Since we don't know their starting points in the vertical, you can't accurately compare the two. However, assuming Watkins' height isn't a result of a freakishly long head, Watkins has 3" on height and 1.5" on arm length, with the same size hands. Subtract out the 2" difference in the jump, you have Watkins with a max 2.5" difference.

As for the catch radius, Watkins' arms are an 1.5" longer, so it's not like there is a huge difference in the catch radius.

This argument is stupid and pointless (big surprise there, Bob). The point wasn't to bash Watkins or to say Cooks is better; it was just to say Cooks isn't that far off from the best.

Cooks wasn't a household name because he played at Oregon State, not USC or in the SEC, so it appears that people here don't know him or have watched him play (except for Pest and his awesome wife). I was trying to put in a perspective of someone who had watched him play a lot. I am also not pushing for the Chiefs to draft him (though I would be cool with it).

However, you're the guy that said you would rather have Josh Huff over Brandin Cooks (lol), so I figure you're just another delusional Ducks fan.
