The New York Jets, who will be picking 18th overall in next month’s NFL Draft, will bring in Oregon State WR Brandin Cooks for a pre-draft workout per Rich Cimini. Cooks had an amazing season in 2013 for the Beavers 128 passes for 1730 yards and 16 touchdowns. The Jets are in serious need of a playmaking WR despite the additions of Eric Decker and Jacoby Ford.
Will Cooks be on the board when the Jets pick though? Cooks ran a blazing fast 4.33 forty yard dash at the NFL scouting combine last month which has him rising up mock drafts across the internet. He also put up the best 60-yard shuttle time since 2006.
New York has seemingly been linked to every wide receiver in Free Agency and next months draft. Many Jets fans were disappointed that John Idzik did not make a play for DeSean Jackson when he was released by the Eagles last week. Cooks may be the guy the Jets have been targeting all along.
Cooks certainly isn’t lacking confidence, “I feel like I’m the best receiver in this class and I’m not just saying that to say it,” Cooks said. “I put numbers that nobody else did this year. At the same time I was facing premier talent.”
Who do you want the Jets to pick in the first round?
