According to nola.com, Saints QB Drew Brees had this to say about rookie WR Brandin Cooks: “Feed me, feed me information. He absorbs it very quickly and goes out and applies it. I’d say that’s pretty rare for a young guy.”
SMITTY: Brandin Cooks has all kinds of “home run” upside, even as a rookie. Occasionally rookie wide receivers come along and post 1,000-yard seasons during their first campaigns. Well, if anyone can do that, it’s Cooks, who arguably has one of the best situations any rookie could ask for (pulling in passes from Drew Brees, and having defensive attention on Jimmy Graham, who is 80/1,200/12+ capable). Any receiver in this situation would have rookie upside, but when you mix in Cooks’ skill set with that Saints air attack, the sky is the limit, and this is especially the case entering his second NFL season.
