POTD: Chris Cook, CB/S, Virginia
By Kip Earlywine
Weight: 212 lbs.
40 time: 4.46
Sadly, this picture of Chris Cook is pretty much the full extent of what I could find on him without getting actual game tape. So like the Ghee POTD, I'm going to link some scouting reports done by other sites:
GangGreenNation (Jets blog)
Matt McGuire at Walter Football hinted (probably as humor) that Cook might interest Al Davis. The inference being that Cook is a better athlete than football player. The scouting reports seem to back that assertion up. Cook is definitely a physical specimen. Its not very often you see a DB that can physically play all 3 defensive back positions (CB, FS, and SS). Seattle needs an immediate starter at strong safety, which probably makes Cook a little less likely, especially considering his injury history. But could he be a "buy low" option if he somehow slips into the 4th round? Perhaps. I doubt he makes it out of round 3, but he might be a guy to keep an eye on.
Expect him to be drafted in... Rounds 2-3
