(On how much life has changed in past year)

It's kind of hard to put in words, but it's been a tremendous change, coming from where I came from to living my dream that I always thought about my whole life. It's been a wonderful journey so far. It's still early, but I'm having a great time and I'm blessed.

(On his first season)

I feel it was an alright rookie year. I've got some things to work on. But it was also good because I got my feet in the water and did some good things for the team. I just didn't go out the way I wanted it to go out. So I'm just going to build on it in the offseason.

(On the jump from college to NFL)

The jump was definitely what I expected for the most part. The speed didn't really change for me. I feel like fast is fast, slow is slow. But the thing that did change was how smart and experienced everyone was. Just from taking angles -- usually I'm able to beat the angles easily -- now at the NFL level, you've got to be more particular on how you set your angles and everything like that with your routes.

It took Reggie Bush 6 years to figure out you can't just outrun everyone at the NFL level.

Smart kid, humble, studies and understand what it takes to compete at this level... a true Pro.

Looking forward to watching Cooks in 2015.

When he did though it was quite comical. He had to be accounted for at all times regardless. Hoping Cooks turns into that type of player. Can't give him much space or it's over.

When he speaks he sounds mature beyond his years.
