09/13/17 - RB Dalvin Cook ran for 127 yards on Monday. The only player to rush for more in his Vikings' debut was Herschel Walker, who had 148 versus the Packers in 1989.
09/12/17 - RB Dalvin Cook, a rookie, ran for 127 yards on 22 carries in his NFL debut for Minnesota. He also had three catches for 10 yards. "He just told me to keep balling, and I told him that I'm just following the GOAT's footsteps," Cook said of his chat with Adrian Peterson after the game. "That's what I'm doing. I'm learning, but there's a lot to learn and there's a lot to learn from him. He did some great things with this organization that he put on tape that I like to watch."
05/31/17 - RB Dalvin Cook, Minnesota's second-round draft pick, signed a four-year contract. He left Florida State as the school's all-time leading rusher, and his success in college led some analysts to believe he would be a first-round selection.
03/07/17 - NFL Combine Cliffhangers: Is Cook's workout being overblown? Yes. Dalvin Cook is proven talent who plays quicker and faster than he times in drills because he anticipates defenders. The stopwatch did not reflect that. If Cook falls on draft day, it will be due to medical or off-field concerns, not because his 40-yard dash or shuttle drills weren't up to par. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
03/03/17 - 2017 NFL Combine, Day 2 Winners: Dalvin Cook: The Florida State running back has concerns about his shoulder that could potentially scare teams. So when he sat down for the bench press, there was some concern about what number he might put up. Cook, who described himself as the “best running back in the draft” during his media session, quelled any concerns quickly by throwing up 22 reps on the bench. - Will Brinson, CBSSports.com
