01/02/14 - Brandin Cooks Makes Himself Eligible for NFL Draft...Oregon State University junior wide receiver Brandin Cooks has elected to make himself eligible for the 2014 NFL Draft by submitting a notarized petition to the NFL renouncing his remaining one year of college eligibility. Cooks, the 2013 recipient of the Biletnikoff Award as the nationís most outstanding college receiver, earned consensus All-America honors following the recently completed season.

During his OSU career he has accounted for 226 receptions for 3,272 yards and 26 total touchdowns (24 rec, 2 rush). Overall, he has compiled 3,863 all-purpose yards.

12/26/13 - CBSSPORTS.COM ALL-AMERICANS: FIRST-TEAM OFFENSE AS NFL DRAFT PROSPECTS: WR - Brandin Cooks, Jr., Oregon State: The FBS-leader in receiving yards (1,670) during the regular season, Cooks is small in stature (5-10, 186), but he has big-play potential every time he touches the ball. He has terrific athleticism and speed, using start-stop change-of-direction skills and instant acceleration to make defenders miss in the open field. Whether he decides to jump to the NFL now or next year, Cooks' size and lack of strength will ding him during the pre-draft process, but his make-you-miss quickness and playmaking speed will make him a valuable slot option at the NFL level. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
