Draft Scout News
11/18/14 - WR Brandin Cooks, who leads all rookies in receptions, is finished for the season after being placed on season-ending injured reserve on Tuesday because of a broken thumb. Cooks' agent had said after Monday's surgery that Cooks would be sidelined 4-6 weeks, but the Saints do not plan to use him again this season. Cooks has 53 catches for 550 yards and three touchdowns this year.
11/17/14 - WR Brandin Cooks reportedly broke his thumb in the loss to the Bengals and could be out for 2-to-4 weeks.
11/09/14 - Rookie WR Brandin Cooks is starting to feel it. Early in the season he was used mostly on bubble screens and quick slants, but he went deep for a 31-yard touchdown catch in the first half.
10/26/14 - WR Brandin Cooks scored twice Sunday -- on a 4-yard reverse in the first quarter and on a 50-yard deep post in the third quarter. It was Cooks' longest catch of the season, a departure from the underneath routes that he has been running. "Drew (Brees) says to trust your speed, and I understand him," Cooks said of his quarterback. "He's played with a lot of guys over the years, and he told me to just trust it."
09/21/14 - WR Brandin Cooks caught eight passes for 74 yards, and the key reception was a 19-yarder on third-and-7 to the Minnesota 18, setting up WR Marques Colston's clinching TD. Cooks was targeted several times on bubble screens and made a few errors by turning back into pursuit, but it is clear QB Drew Brees is making the rookie one of his prime targets.
