Chris Cook, CB, Virginia

Ever since his freshman season at Virginia, Chris Cook has been a versatile player in the secondary who was able to fill in at corner or safety. However, just when he was turning into a starter, Cook broke his leg and missed out on the rest of his freshman season. In 2006 he played in all 12 games, starting the final 11 and continued to improve with every game. In 2007, Cook started the first six games of the season before missing some time with a knee injury. Despite the limited action, Cook still totaled 39 tackles. Cook missed the entire 2008 season for academic reasons and his NFL stock will greatly depend on his play during his senior season. Through eight games, Cook is already putting up his best numbers. He has 24 tackles, 1.0 tackles-for-loss, three pass breakups and two interceptions. What makes Cook interesting is his versatility. At 6-2 and 210 pounds (which is heavier than he was last year), he looks like a safety, but he has the speed and coverage skills to be a cornerback too. He might not project as a great cornerback in the NFL, especially if he keeps putting on weight to play safety, but with his size it is certainly an intriguing possibility.

Prediction: 2nd Round

Chris Cook clocked a 4.43, 40 yd. dash at the Combine. That is fast for a 6-2, 210 lb. player. The Cowboys spoke with him in depth about being a safety in the NFL. If he impressed them enough, you might see him come off the board to Dallas at #59 in the 2nd round.

If he pans out, it would give them the big, fast FS they have not had since the days of Darren Woodson. If not, he would join an already very good CB corps that, with him, might just be great. Either way, a good pick up for the 'Boys.
