Jared Cook chose to sign with the Packers this off-season after spending the past three years in St. Louis. After reaching 50+ catches and 500+ yards in consecutive season, Cook's stats slipped in 2015 (39 receptions for 481 yards and no touchdowns. He has yet to reach the lofty potential that many scouts pegged him for coming out of college. He has the size, speed and athleticism to create mismatches against opposing linebackers, and that makes him a great fit in the Packers offense. Packers coach Mike McCarthy has been vocal about how the rule changes in the NFL have created a need for speed in the middle of the field, and the normally stingy-in-free-agency Packers made it a point to add that dimension to their offense. Cook is a good player, but how good remains to be seen. He's played his entire career with a revolving group of quarterbacks that include Jake Locker, Vince Young, Sam Bradford and Nick Foles, and those are the most notable signal callers. Cook now finds himself in one of the top offenses in football, catching passes from perhaps the best quarterback in the game. There are a lot of mouths to feed in the Packers offense, so it would be unwise to expect Cook be a top 10 tight end right away, but it certainly isn't out of the question given McCarthy's comments. The most likely scenario will be a time share with Richard Rodgers, effectively lowering the value of both Rodgers and Cook as fantasy options. If one of the two were to get injured though (a likely occurrence in today's NFL), that would open the door for the other to be a top 10 tight end, with Cook having the highest upside of the two.
