As a popular sleeper heading into drafts last year, Cook fell short of expectations. The Tennessee Titans tight end caught 49 passes for 759 yards and three touchdowns.
It feels as if Cook has been in the NFL forever, but the 25-year-old still has only three years under his belt. There’s plenty of time for him to develop into a formidable force at tight end.
Now that some of the shine has dusted off, Cook could be a draft-day steal, especially for keeper-league players looking for a long-term stalwart.
One of the biggest questions posed this year is “Who will be this year’s Jimmy Graham or Rob Gronkowski?” Along with Brandon Pettigrew, Cook is one of the most logical options to leap to greatness.
Does a tremendous athlete in a promising offense who has improved throughout his NFL career seem like a guy worth a late pick? If so, then allow me to pique your interest in Jared Cook.
