Torn between Cook or Williams at 1.05

Postby Telperion » Tue Jul 04, 2017 9:23 pm

Normally I'm all about NFL Draft position, but Williams' apparent injury-proneness is giving me cold feet. In 2015 and 2016 I drafted Kevin White, Laquon Treadwell, and Josh Doctston. I'm wary to get burned again. The top 4 went as expected.

This is for the team in my signature. Thoughts? I can go either way on this one.

I am going to be in the minority here and say take neither of them. Looking at that roster you're so Stacks you might as well backup eifert and grab Howard. Or try to trade back a couple pics

Cook. I am a believer in him. Before the draft people were saying he was number 2. I know the vikes line was horrible last year. They signed two new lineman and drafted a new center who people say could start this year. It is looking up for him.

I would take Cook very easily. I like Williams at 1.06, but he's been falling even past that recently. Cook is easily the best player available at this point.

I go Cook here as well. Nobody is ever going to complain about RB depth.

Can always trade later for TE depth if that's what you're worried about

Exactly this! Cooks value has slid after the combine and draft but I believe a lot of people will end up regretting not taking him earlier than he is being drafted.

I'm taking Cook here, even if I like MW better long-term. MW is already trending towards having a pretty slow rookie season, and warranted or not I think that will hurt his value going into next year. I have Cook/MW pretty close to one another, and Cook has a chance to increase his value substantially this year where I highly doubt MW will. MW is specifically 1.06 for me right now. I won't take him over the top 5, and there's nobody under him that I'd even consider taking at 1.06.

Piling on for Cook. As a Vikings homer he's gonna do some big things. He's already ahead of Murray in the offense with Murray recovering from off season surgery. The only thing Murray has on Cook now is experience.

Dalvin at 1.05 seems like a no brainer for me.
