COLLEGE CAREER – Impressing the New Orleans brass with his athleticism, worth ethic and character, the Saints traded up in the 2014 NFL Draft to the 20th slot to have the opportunity to pick the 2013 Biletnikoff Award winner. Taking advantage of blazing speed, clocking in with a 4.33 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine, Cooks established himself as one of college football’s elite offensive weapons in three seasons at Oregon State, where he started 29-of-38 games and posted 226 receptions for 3,272 yards (14.5 avg.) with 24 touchdowns, also adding 61 carries for 340 yards (5.6 avg.). Expected to also compete for snaps in the return game for the Saints, Cooks also returned 12 punts for 72 yards and brought back eight kickoffs for 179 yards for a career total of 3,863 all-purpose yards.
