The New Orleans Saints shipped Darren Sproles to the Philadelphia Eagles prior to this years NFL Draft. While the move left the Saints without one of the their premier play makers quarterack Drew Brees believes his replacement is already on the roster.
“Hey, we go out in the draft and get a guy in Brandin Cooks out of Oregon State – an explosive player, great speed, great talent, tremendous young man, loves to learn, loves the game of football.” Brews told USA Today.”From all indications, this guy can do a lot of things for us, and he’s eager to fill a role that we need him to on offense.”
There is plenty of reason to get excited about Cooks. He had 128 catches for 1,730 yards and 16 touchdowns in 2013. He added another 217 yards and two touchdowns as a running back.
“Oh man, I’ve seen all the highlights, and that gets you excited,” Brees said. “I think he can do a lot of things. I think he can play outside receiver. I think I he can play inside in the slot. You can hand him reverses. You can throw him screens. He can return punts.
