    Cook would fit in beautifully in Cleveland. He kind of has the look of a Cleveland Brown.

      Hilarious! This was just on NFL network. Dalvin Cooks pro day was underwhelming and his pro comparison is…

    Every College coach defend their players not a big surprise!!

    It continues to amaze me with the assertions surrounding Cook. JMO it is the residual effect of the false narrative that followed Winston and Gold digging Cleat chaser. Apparently in the media today even if falsely accused, if not arrested, or even if found innocent in a court of law you are still guilty.

    Cook’s character was never a serious question at FSU. Gator girl just lied about Cook.

    Cook would look great in pewter and red, and I hope he is there at 19. He’s Warrick Dunn with more explosion.

    I would call him the 3rd RB off the board, behind Fournette and McCaffrey. In recent previous drafts, the 3rd RB off the board was in rounds 3, 2, 2, 2, last pick in the 1st, 2, third last pick in the 1st, second last pick in the first. That would suggest that pick #19 should have a pretty good chance of grabbing the 3rd RB if so desirable….for what it’s worth.

    I do think that EzE has not helped the situation by having such an impactful year as a rookie RB…and I know there are many FSU fans on this site that will claim Cook will be the first (or perhaps second) RB off the board. If the second RB taken, recent history would suggest he may still be available at #19…so maybe we’ll have our choice of McCaffrey or Cook… probably not, but that’s the history of it.

    I wonder if Fisher, or any coach for that matter, has come out to say “This guy has low moral character… I definitely wouldn’t draft this guy in the first round.”? I’m on the McCaffery train, myself… But, there will be several enticing players that are going to slide down to #19. In Licht I Trust.

    Nice situation for the Buccaneers. If Dalvin is there it would be hard not to take him. If he isn’t there are plenty of good options left. Not surprising his college HC would back him up but, as they did with Jameis, I’m sure the Buccaneers will do their homework on a deeper level than a recommendation of Fisher or any college HC supporting his players.
    Very interesting draft coming up, the “mocks” (pointless waste of time guesswork from “experts” in no way associated with the team) can drive you crazy! Can’t wait for the real thing.

    I like Cook a lot, not really concerned about character. He has real good games when it counts. He does remind me of Dunn, one of my favorite Bucs. FSU+Bucs has had some pretty good results!!
    If he’s gone I wouldn’t mind McCaffrey but would prefer him. But I doubt Licht cares what I think 😁

    Buc 1976

    If Bucs draft McCaffrey, I don’t see the need to keep Siims. I have to wonder if he has any Trade Value?
