Guy We Didn't Draft (Though Talked About) Dazzles At Saints Camp


79 posts in this topic

This is the guy I wanted the Jets to draft.  Don't get me wrong though.  After seeing Calvin Pryor's highlights (crushing hits), I was fine w/ the pick.  I'm no expert anyway.  But I will be following Brandin Cooks.

Rookie wide receiver Brandin Cooks lit up training camp on Tuesday with the session's finest play, taking a Brees screen pass the distance and showing off his speed and wiggle along the way.s-dazzles-at-new-orleans-saints-camp

Prefer a rebuilding team not take under 6' WR's that early.

As for the video- he took a perfectly blocked screen pass the distance off of one cut.

what, a guy getting a concussion, and the other guy dropping passes before re-aggrivating an old knee injury isn't good enough for you ?

He's going to be good, no question. Probably Brees' favorite behind Graham, but how good would he have been with Geno is the question?

I wanted him too, but I am not sure Saunders is all that much behind him

He'll never get that in NJ.

All World Q.B, perfect block, these are unknown concepts in Jet Land.

Well, I guess you can watch his career and lament the Jets not drafting him every day, but there's no way he would be able to accomplish in the Meadowlands with Geno (or Vick for that matter) what he'll be able to do with Brees in a dome.

So the argument against drafting him is airtight then, is what you're saying?

This whole offense and scoring points thing is really overrated. We should punt on 2nd down.

I support the team taking the first safety off the board instead of the fourth WR; a tiny, speedy WR at that. The pass defense needed nearly as much help as the passing offense. We'll see how the careers of Cooks and Pryor go, with an eye on Jalen Saunders, too.

Would I've been excited if they took Cooks? Yeah, I would've. I think it would've been a bold pick. The boom/bust potential is significantly greater with Cooks. I don't think that's the kind of pick you're ever going to see Idzik make in the first round, though. I'm sure he wants star potential, but I have a feeling that a high floor is more important to him than a high ceiling that high.

If we were going to go receiver that early it had to be Benjamin. I would have probably taken the kid Seattle took(Richardson) over Cooks too.

I agree with this, too. It's unfair to compare a WR going into the Saints system to any other pick made this year, really. Brees and Payton will make pretty much everyone a star (Kenny Stills, for instance). I was disappointed they passed on playmakers in the first the last two years, but I'm hoping Idzik is waiting to see what kind of QB play he gets before investing heavily in receivers.

Cordarelle Patterson is supposedly killing people in practices. Him v Milliner in the draft could hurt.

it's hard to imagine a lineup with Kerley and Cooks on the field at the same time

 

follow up question how would Kerley look on the Saints?

We all know what a player does in a couple days of training camp makes them an all pro

Oh cool, we're already at the part of the season where we whine about the guys we didn't draft.

Kelvin Benjamin is a stiff.

Nobody's whining. I started a whole thread before the draft about how much I liked Pryor.
