New Orleans Saints: Brandin Cooks a perfect match?

The New Orleans Saints moved up seven slots in the 2014 NFL Draft so that they could select Brandin Cooks with the 20th pick in the first round. Cooks is the first offensive player that the Saints selected in the first round since 2007 when they selected Robert Meachem, a fellow receiver. It is clear that Sean Payton identified Cooks as the player that his offense needed. Let’s take a look at how Cook will fit into the Saints offense.

Cooks is an explosive player that can really do damage in space. He will be the slot receiver as the Saints spread the field with Jimmy Graham at the other slot along with Marques Colston and Kenny Stills working the outside. Payton will employ a large amount of 11 personnel. Cooks gives them a jolt of excitement because of his elite speed (4.33 forty) and quickness (3.83 short shuttle). He feels that his attributes are perfect for the Saints offense.
