    I know i'm probably gonna get called out on this, and this is definitely something a team could only afford w/ a luxury pick...something the Cowboys aren't in the position to do. But hear me out, this guy at #16 is tremendous value in this loaded draft. Tavon Austin was taken at #9 last year for "speed & agility" mainly and Cooks ran a faster 40 yard dash time and basically destroyed his production at the collegiate level. He is a matchup nightmare. Dez, TWill, Cooks, Witten, Escobar, Murray....

    He's an under dawg might even turn out the better pro when it's all said and done if he can translate his skills too the NFL

    I wouldn't be upset at all over this pick at 16. He's a rare talent. I worry about his durability but that's probably not going to be a problem. You could play him at the X, W, Z or RB esp split wide or in motion and he's a mismatch for one guy. Someone may take a chance on him in the first IMO. He's just too much of a playmaker.

    Love this guy. I really doubt we draft him, considering how we (over?)value the measurable and all that.

    I completely agree. Wherever this guy is on the field he is a mismatch for any defender.

    I really love Cooks as a player. A lot. However, I can't see it with our needs.

    Yeah that's the problem...but if we got him it would take a little off the defense. Our O would be unstoppable

    Could be seeing a lot of him. Eagles are said to covet him.
