Bio: 
Two-year starter named a unanimous All-American as a junior after breaking his own single-season school rushing record with 1,765 yards on the ground. Added 488 yards receiving and scored 20 total touchdowns. Named Second Team All-American in 2015 and won the Jim Brown Award as the nation’s top running back after rushing for 1,691 yards and 19 touchdowns. Third Team All-ACC as a true freshman with 1,008 rushing yards and eight scores on 170 carries. Florida State’s career rushing leader.
Pos: 
Explosive multi-purpose ball carrier with a versatile game. Patient, methodical and consistently productive. Displays the speed, quickness and agility to easily reach the perimeter, has a burst and picks up big yardage from the line of scrimmage. Makes defenders miss to create extra yardage, works runs and keeps his feet moving. Uses an effective straight arm to knock defenders away. Runs with vision, follows blocks everywhere on the field and weaves through traffic to pick up positive yardage. Displays power in his lower body with the ability to break arm tackles and maintains his running form. Consistently keeps the play in bounds and effectively uses downfield blocks. Terrific pass catcher out of the backfield who displays himself as a legitimate downfield threat.
Neg: 
More of a one-cut ball carrier. Gets in trouble when he runs east/west. Must be more cognizant of blocking assignments.
Analysis: 
Cook is a terrific prospect as an interior ball carrier, outside around the perimeter and as a pass catcher out of the backfield. He possesses the tools to become a feature runner on Sundays. If focused on his game, he will have a very productive next-level career.
