Mock draft update

Posted by Chris Brown on March 2, 2009 – 4:35 pm

I already liked the way the most recent Scout.com mock draft by Chris Steuber played out in the first round with FSU’s Everette Brown going to Buffalo at 11. But the second round became even more intriguing.

He had the Bills taking South Carolina TE Jared Cook (6’5″ 246) in round two. I talked to the former wide receiver prior to his blistering Combine workout that included a 4.5 40-time, a 41-inch vertical, 23 reps on the bench (despite long arms) and over 10 feet in the broad jump (10’3″). The guy is confident and would definitely fit the game breaking tight end need the Bills have at the position , but he knows right now his game has limitations.

“I’m a fast guy that can stretch the field well, catch the ball well, gets open well,” said Cook. “I’m an improving blocker and just looking to learn a lot.”

Cook came across well and has already shown he’s open to taking on added roles as he let Steve Spurrier at South Carolina move him from WR to TE. Whether he’s worth a high second-round pick is tough to gauge, but he undoubtedly has the physical tools.
