Ourlads' Profile:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DALVIN COOK: Florida State, 5103 210 4.49. Junior entry from Miami, FL. The three-year starter is the Seminoles’ all-time leading rusher and is second all-time in the ACC. Unanimous All-America in 2016. Marshall Faulk type build with a powerful lower body from hips to ankles. A three down back who has big time speed and quickness. Can see angles and running lanes on the move. Top notch overall talent and run skills. A creative ball carrier inside and outside. Productivity is not a question. Natural feel for running the ball. Good vision and quick reactions. Good eye/hand coordination to catch all the pass routes. Uses a stiff arm to ward off oncoming tacklers. Makes his cuts at full speed. Has an explosive start and quickness to and through the hole. A confident and clutch player at crunch time. Physical, aggressive, hard runner who will not hesitate to lower his shoulder and run through a tackler. Excellent hands when on the move. Effective blocker. Saves his best play for the biggest moments. Will need to add bulk to his frame. Has several off field red flags over his career of which he was never convicted, but has an ugly pattern of off field transgressions. Cook is a dangerous threat to take it to the house each time he touches the ball. He is explosive in and out of traffic, runs hard through contact, and shows the on-field IQ you want out of an every down ball carrier. His potential is as high as any player in this class. An immediate upgrade to most starting running backs in the league. 2016 stats: 1765 yds, 6.1 ypc, 19 TD, 33 rec, 488 yds, 14.8 ypr, 1 TD. OSR:18/30. First round. (A-32 3/8, H-9 1/4, BP-22, SS-4.55).
