NFC South Q&A: Does Brandin Cooks merit coverage from top cornerbacks?

Today's question: The Saints' Brandin Cooks has emerged as one of the NFL's top young receivers, with eight touchdowns over his last nine games. And he is one of the NFC South's most versatile playmakers because of his dynamic speed. The 5-foot-10, 189-pounder is both a deep threat and an elusive open-field runner on shorter throws. How does your team match up against Cooks' skill set, and will they shadow him with a top cornerback?

That video summed it up very nicely. Cooks wasn't doing all that until Snead emerged and then he had eight touchdowns in nine games. Throw in Thomas and the defenses won't know who to cover. Somebody is going to be open all day long if our O-line holds up.

Let the defenses pick their poison.

We also have a tight end to worry about this year.

People noticed him after the Dallas game but really started paying attention after the 141 yards against Philly in week 5. 984 total yards will jump to over 1000 this year. Only 3 tds but I see 5+ this year.
