RB . Buffalo Bills. JAMES COOK. A+.

James Cook was the second offensive player from the Georgia football program taken in the second round. Of all of the Day 2 picks, Cook to the Buffalo Bills made the most sense.

The Bills get an A+ for drafting Cook as it is a perfect fit. Cook may need to add some weight to his frame, but he can catch the ball out of the backfield, is extremely fast, and his vision when toting the rock has gotten so much better the last year.

Buffalo loves a passionate player, and Cook is someone that has unlimited potential.

Some had him coming off the board in round two, but most thought he would be around three or later. Georgia uses its running backs as a group, and each one gets specific reps, so for the Bills to take him this early was a great move.

After returning for his senior season, Cook took it to the next level, and no one truly knows how good he is. It is slightly risky, but it isn’t because Cook has the raw natural talent to succeed. Plus, he has worked his tail off to improve and grow his craft.

The ceiling is high, and the potential is even higher, so the Bills got a solid running back that could turn into their franchise back if it works how it should.
