Former Bucs RB Coach: Draft CookMarch 19th, 2017
When people who both played and coached in the NFL offer opinions on draft prospects, Joe always listens. Who would know better than them?
Former Bucs running back coach Earnest Byner (2012 & 2013), who had one helluva career in the NFL, has been really active on Twitter of late. He has studied running backs coming out of college into this spring’s draft, and he has a list ranking who is the best.
Atop that list? Dalvin Cook.
@EByner: 1.Davin Cook 2.Fournett 3. Mixon 4.McCaffery 5.Kamara first four have first round talent, make a difference ability.(Mixon trouble may pause)
Joe puts a lot of worth into this. Byner knows from his own experience what it takes to succeed in the NFL. (He’s got two Super Bowl rings.) And he knows also from a coach’s perspective.
So when Byner says Cook has the best traits to make it in the NFL, who is Joe to argue?
