Summary

Cook appears to be saving the best for last in his career, as he is coming off of his best season as a pro to land in the best situation he has been in as a pro. The Saints should see better results from Cook than Coby Fleener, their last big free agent signing at tight end. The main question is just how good, as they haven't had someone to harvest the considerable value from that position since Jimmy Graham. Since then, the overall passing production has dropped, and Cook will also have better competition for downfield targets than Saints tight ends have had in recent years. He's worth the pick at a back half of the TE1 ranks price with top half of the TE1 ranks upside. (May 1)
