This year he has returned 13 punts for 73 yards (average of 5.61 yards).
Strange, but true. His longest return was for 74 yards. He had two with a total of minus 24 yards.
Yeah, if you draft him, you damn sure don't do it for his punt return skills.
No i realize that. Like i said this year is the first year he has done it. But i think he shows talent for the position, and looks more comfortable and sure handed than anyone we have. Like i said, that would be a work in progress.
I have no problem with the notion of drafting Cooks.
But, I think we would still need to draft a returner specialist.
