Summary

No rookie landed in a better spot than Dalvin Cook did this season. Cook goes to a well coached Vikings team that are strong on offense and defense and are accustomed to overcoming adversity. Cook cost the Vikings a 2nd Round pick but that was much cheaper than what the Jaguars paid for Fournette and both running backs have a similar skill set. Cook was projected to be a first round pick but fell to the Vikings and could have some extra motivation because of it. Cook has been dynamic for Florida State the last two years rushing for 1,691 and 1,765 yards respectfully with 19 rushing touchdowns each season. He also has the ability to catch the ball out of the backfield as he caught 33 passes in 2016 for 488 yards and a touchdown. Cook will improve the Vikings running game with his fresh legs this season and it will be interesting if his 40 total touchdowns during his last two years in college influences what he can do in his rookie season in the NFL. He knows how to find the end zone and chasing double digit touchdowns in his rookie season could be in the mix. (May 22)
