What is that? Someone said something extremely flattering and possibly hyperbolic about Jared Cook ? Well, you know I've got to write about it.
Sports Illustrated's Peter King continued his tour of all 32 NFL training camps this weekend with a visit to Rams camp on Saturday. While he did compliment rookie wide receiver Tavon Austin -- He's "so quick it was almost unfair" -- he saved his best for the big tight end. King called Cook "athletic and imposing" and said "I have not seen a better offensive weapon in all the practices I've seen on this training camp tour" than Cook.
I know you shouldn't draft Cook ahead of Tony Gonzalez because of the latter's consistent track record of production. But I would much rather have Cook at his current ADP -- early ninth round -- than Gonzalez at his -- early sixth round. Cook is an absolute steal at that number. I can't be possibly any higher on him.
