Oregon State WR Brandin Cooks proclaimed that he can be a better version of DeSean Jackson.
Speaking to Philly.com, Cooks was both complimentary and supremely confident. "His game is unbelievable," said Cooks. "The man can blow the top off, catch the deep routes, catch the underneath routes, produce in the return game. He’s just special. He’s a freak. I definitely admire his game. Maybe Chip Kelly is looking to take another speedy receiver in that first round, and that could be me. Who knows? And if that’s the case, a lot of people will wonder ‘Can he do it like DeSean Jackson?’ In my opinion, I can do it like him and do it better." Chip Kelly has reportedly closely scouted Cooks, and the fit makes plenty of sense. Coming out of college, the players were the same height (5-foot-10), but Cooks is 14 pounds heavier (189 to 175) and a smidgen faster (4.33 forty to 4.35). Cooks also put up far superior numbers despite playing in only two more collegiate games (226 catches/3,272 yards/24 TDs compared to Jackson's 162/2,423/22 touchdown).
