Saints rookie Brandin Cooks part of historic WR class

METAIRIE, La. -- Brandin Cooks is tied for the NFL lead for receptions among rookie receivers this season with 48. But the New Orleans Saints' first-round draft choice is going to have to be even better over the final seven weeks if he wants to have any shot at the Offensive Rookie of the Year award.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, this is the first season in NFL history where more than three first-year receivers had five touchdown catches through 10 weeks. And seven rookies have done it this year.

It's also the first season in NFL history where four rookie receivers had 40 receptions through 10 weeks. The previous high was two.

And it's the first season in NFL history where five rookie receivers had 500 yards through 10 weeks. The previous high was three.

And its not even the same guys in each category.

I noticed that so far this season that the rookie receivers -- the rookie class, period -- is doing well, said Cooks, who said he got to know a lot of the other guys during the pre-draft process.

But Cooks said hes not taking any pride in the overall group accomplishments.

Nah, I just continue to do my job and Im not too worried about what everybody else is doing, Cooks said.

Don't think Cooks potential is realized as a decoy. We should be using Cooks to run the ball more with jet sweeps and end around plays, he should be used as more of a decoy on running plays.

If you run 4 plays off the edge with Cooks than you could run 10 plays with him coming around as a decoy. Kind of disappointed we haven't seen more of that this year.

Sean Payton seems to have lost his creativity. I wonder if that was part of the divorce settlement?
