I see this argument a lot. I simply do not think that it is as universal as people seem to make it.

A team that's in the playoffs on a regular basis, and in the NFC final 4 last season doesn't have so many holes that stockpiling players is the primary goal of the draft.

Cooks has all of the makings of taking the lid off the offense. He has the potential to be transformative in a very short amount of time. He fills the roles that Henderson and Sproles have played over the last 3 years or so.

Both Payton and Loomis made it clear this was the guy that they wanted. It's not difficult to see how he's going to draw fire away from the rest of the playmakers on the Saints offense opening up a ton of opportunities for Colston, Stills, JG, and the running backs.

It was clear Cooks wasn't going to be available at 27. At this point Payton having the guy he wanted who is by all accounts an exceptional talent and worker is worth exponentially more than having two very good players that don't exactly fit the need and with both not likely making the field for significant impact.

I agree with this. I'm trying not to sound like a homer here, but our team just doesn't have very many wholes right now. We can afford to give up a 3rd round pick in favor of somebody who could potentially put our offense over the top.

Are you just listening to scouts?

Brandin Cooks 5'10" 185 lbs

DeSean Jackson 5'10" 175lbs!
Wes Welker 5'9" 185 lbs
Danny Amendola 5'11" 188lbs

I can keep going.....
call me out. i understand the pick and accept the pick.

I am not going to ignore the risk with the pick. tall WR have their risks as do shorter WR.

If he turns out to be a healthy work horse like Darrin then you have the home run. till then i am not going to be burring my head in the sand.

So what your saying is that the NFL is dangerous and all players run the risk of injury regardless of size? And it might be silly to think that little 5'10" 189lb Brandin Cooks could stay as healthy as big ole 6'6" 265 lb Rob Gronkowski or 6' 225 LB Chris Ivory?
