Position: Class:
5Sr
School: Conference: Ht., Wt.:
5-11.5, 244
40 Time:
4.75

BIOGRAPHY: Moved into the starting lineup as a freshman, and has played with the first team whenever Mississippi started the game using a lead blocker. Carried the ball just one time as a senior and added 7/47/1 as a pass catcher.

POSITIVES: Cook flew under the radar screens for most of the past three years yet on film he looks as good as any fullback in the country. Despite his marginal production handling the ball Cook possesses the athleticism to help out as an offensive threat. He'll likely fall into the late rounds of the draft yet could easily make a roster at the next level.

NEGATIVES: Rarely asked to handle the ball at Mississippi.

ANALYSIS: Terrific lead blocker with outstanding vision and skill. Quick out of his stance, accelerates into blocks, and removes defenders from the action. Displays the ability to get around the corner and creates space for running backs. Nasty and looks to hit as many defenders as possible on every play. Displays good blocking vision, picks up blitz assignments, and effective in pass protection. Shows good hands on the few occasions he is asked to catch the ball.

PROJECTION: 7-FA
