Cold On Cook To Bucs

April 18th, 2017

Not feeling Dalvin Cook in pewter

The face of America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, turned serious and lost its boyish effervescence for a brief moment yesterday.

The subject was Florida State running back Dalvin Cook, and Jameis was asked how much he’s been talking up Cook to Bucs officials.

About half of all Bucs fans would join an all-day parade through downtown St. Pete if Cook was drafted by the Bucs next week.

Jameis usually jumps at the chance to rave at length about his Florida State brethren, especially guys he played with such as Cook. But Jameis was reserved and appeared resigned to Cook having a new address outside Tampa because the Bucs will have not shot at him.

“Man, you know, I’m just excited for Dalvin alone, following him in his draft process. Nineteen is our pick – I honestly think he’s more of a top-15 guy,” Jameis said. “You know, so I’m just excited for him. But, like I said, I’m excited for this team. I’m happy to be back in the building, you know. Walking around, seeing everybody moving around, it’s amazing.”

Again, Joe expected Jameis to seize the opportunity to trumpet the virtues of Cook to the world. He didn’t.

Maybe it means something. Maybe it doesn’t. Joe wouldn’t be surprised if Cook indeed is a top-15 pick and the Bucs don’t find a trade partner willing to dance — or if the Bucs are unwilling to trade up and choose to settle for a running back on Day 2 of the draft.

Cook lovers should not lose hope, though. Joe is confident the Bucs have Cook on their wish list, and various national draft gurus see Cook being available when (if?) the Bucs are on the clock with the 19th pick.

    Cook will be available due to those shoulder issues. How is he going to stay in and block a 250 pound lunatic blitzing linebacker. I can hear the train crash from here.

  2. Gencoimports Says:

    Remember when the Bucs drafted Cadillac Williams when Aaron Rodgers and DeMarcus Ware were still on the board? We got one good year out of
    Williams and then look what happened.

    Hopefully this is a sign the Bucs have learned that lesson. Do not draft a RB in the first round where there are more pressing needs.

  3. Blake_bucsfan Says:

    Cook won’t be there. And we won’t be trading up to get him.

  4. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    Jameis may be just being smart and not touting him too much in the media. No need to sing his praises too much and maybe have a team reconsider and revisit the idea of drafting Cook. It wouldn’t hold much weight if he did gush over him in the presser, but it wouldn’t help either. Cook will be available at 19 so we will find out how much Licht wants him one way or another.

  5. Guzzie Says:

    Or the Bucs just aren’t comfortable or stupid enough to waste a 1st round pick on a running back! Is it that hard to believe that teams pass on a runningback with Cooks athletic profile, injury concerns, size, ball security issues, and questionable character? Please Joe, tell me how wrong I am about Cooks perceived issues, go ahead, I’ll wait!!!!

  6. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    DC will be there an we will be drafting him.

  7. Guzzie Says:

    Marlon Mack is the same size as Cook, and most reports mention Macks size and weight as a concern

  8. Wausa Says:

    My guess is Dalvin is long gone by the time we pick.

    I’m surprised Joe hasn’t done an article on Dalvin Cook’s speed in pads:

    ESPN sport science reported Dalvin as tied for the fastest player in pads last year with John Ross with the same 2.67 20 yard split.

    Come on Joe let’s see the article on the Dalvin Cook speed.

  9. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Licht stated if you listened to his presser yesterday he said something briefly about the possibility of moving up if needed. Its still on if you wanna go check it.

  10. Etzel Says:

    I think Cook will be there at 19 and hopefully we take a hard pass. Would much rather us get Foreman or Mixon in the 2nd. Go DE/DB/TE in the first.

  11. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Ooohh Wausa ain’t he fast.. Mighty fine work by those good folks over sport science. 2.67sec 20 yard split.

  12. Guzzie Says:

    It’s almost noon, I was wondering when Joes next Fluffer Cook article was going to come out lol

  13. DB55 Says:

    Last night I’m watching the first saints game of 2016. It’s the 4th qrt with 3 mins left Bucs are up by 5. We have the ball and are trying to get a first down to kill the clock.

    Our runs are getting stuffed, no push up front and no bruiser to hand the ball off to. As I sit and watch I say to myself “If we had a bruiser at RB this game would be over.”

    Needless to say we got stopped, rather than kicking a 52 yard fg to win we had to punt the ball.

    Now, Brees has the ball on the 3 yard line with 2 mins left (2min warning) and 1 TO left. I was chitting bricks. 2 plays 40 yards. OMG. Come on McCoy make a play big fella, nope!, but Tandy did. The BACKUP safety Int the ball for the second straight week and won the game.

    Take aways:

    We need a bruiser (AP?)
    We should have let Conte go and kept Shep.
    Kickers should be able to at least attempt a 52y fg.
    Our 2min def is absolute garbage (see raiders)

    If you can’t depend on your all-pro, all-world, great not good, future HOF, big money players at least you can depend on a back-up safety to save the game bc that’s what a team sport is all about. Am I right?

  14. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    What RB y’all claim faster again???

  15. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    Guzzie those same reports say that approximately 100 prospects are better than Mack but worse than Cook. You go ahead with your no RBs in the first round motto, I am ok if the Bucs go BPA.

  16. Pickgrin Says:

    Joe – why would you be surprised if the Bucs aren’t willing to trade up?

    I am a “Cook lover” and I don’t want them to trade away valuable picks in a deep draft for a RB in the 1st.

    Its one thing if he’s there at 19 (which he won’t be) because it would be decent value since Dalvin is obviously a top 10 talent and we have a need at RB. But trading a 2nd or even a 3rd round pick to get Cook in a draft this leaded with RB talent and loaded with talent in general through the 4th round – well that would be very dumb and just a bad use of resources. Licht knows this. I know this. Any person with 1/2 a brain knows you don’t trade up in the 1st round for a RB.

  17. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Touchdown one thing is for certain,the media would love for DC to come here. Both Fameis and Licht’s presser were bombarded with questions about one Dalvin Cook. What were they supposed to say. “Oh h3ll yea we going to get him”.

  18. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    I know your theory on a guy that will only touch the ball 20-25 times a game is that they are unimportant and may only last 7-8 years in the league vs your 10 year requirement. I am not in your camp on the unimportance of having a premier running back paired with a franchise QB and a couple of stud recievers.

  19. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Licht just mentioned the possibility yesterday Pick.

  20. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    You aint gotta be in my camp. What you be like every other naysayer here is huge fan of the young man once he’s here making plays for this team.

  21. Waterboy Says:

    Cook won’t fall to 19. He may even be a better fit in Carolina than Fournette so that also may be a potential landing spot for him.

  22. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    LOL Pickgrin – Almost all mocks have DC available at 19 now. If it was one or two mocks that had DC available at 19 I might agree with you. When they all say he is going to be available I trust that he will be. These guys do a lot of research and know a lot of people. They usually are spot on when it comes to a range for specific players. They basically have him going between 19 and 33 at this point.

  23. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    And this whole 10 requirement thing is comical when every player in the league is play away from being finish considering the high impact nsture of this game. Save that its weak.

  24. DallasBuc Says:

    Seems that Cook’s balls are jammed so far down Nosbos’ air hole it is cutting off oxygen to his already challenged ability to reason!

  25. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    I was talking to Guzzie NOSBOS and all the other guys who have a rule that no RB should ever be taken in the first round.

  26. BurgDweller Says:

    I’m so glad that in less than 2 weeks and all this sewing circle gossip can finally come to an end.

  27. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    They’re is a definite agenda happening with DC and this draft. Each week leading up to the draft I read article after article of his stock falling. Interesting the standford kid stock seems to be rising. Politics I tell you.

  28. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    My bad Touchdown. Dave go f@$# ya self and put some money up.

  29. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Dave do you realize how incredibly stupid you sounded on that radio call dude??? Do you. Paranoidschzophrenic.

  30. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Its one thing to post everyday in anonymity, but to put yourself out there like that tells us alot about what we already suspected about you Dave. You f@$!in crazy. Talkin nuts on tunsils and still round here slobbin lovie.

  31. Blake_bucsfan Says:

    “We’re still not gonna go too far off of our board… We feel good, we feel like based on the team that we have right now we can line up and play, and we’d feel pretty good about it. But, we’re in a position right now where we still can take the best player available um (smirks) and a lot of times you take the player that may look like, why are they taking him they’re loaded at that position? Or they have bigger needs at another position. But, that player usually, at some point you look back and you say, I don’t know where we’d be without that player.”

    Licht said about 10 more things that kinda alluded to him not wanting to trade up.

    His comments on “safe” picks comes to mind.

  32. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    You stood out to me more so than any other poster when I discovered this site Dave. You was a f@$! Boy then and you a f@$!boy now.

  33. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Funny I have the entire presser right here on my phone. Very easy to substantiate what he said.

  34. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Y’all use to kill me wit “sorry dallas” I use to be like how in the h3ll can a internet personality intimidate another man??? F@$! Dave.

  35. Bobby M. Says:

    Maybe Winston knows first hand about Cook that he’s hoping the Bucs aren’t in position to draft him. If we all agree that the running game probably cost the Bucs a spot in the playoffs, Winston may not want to stick his neck out for another back that could sabotage another season with distractions…injuries…or turnovers.

  36. $acbuc$ Says:

    Peter Shragger just said and I quote He would put the Bucs last draft selection up against anybody in the league. With the exception of the Agagyo pick. Woo Fire

  37. Wausa Says:

    I am 100% positive Jameis would love to have Dalvin Cook on the Bucs

  38. Steven007 Says:

    Only one more week of this conjecture. Ss for speed in pads, that’s nice and all but DC’s speed is predicated on his ability to fight traffic and get outside, which he did very well at the college level. How well he does in the NFL we’ll just have to see. With so many talented players available at so many areas of need (DE/S/CB/RB) I am confident that Licht will stick to his board and take BPA at 19. Trading up ONE YEAR after doing so in disastrous fashion last year doesn’t seem prudent at all. Yeah, I know, “no risk it no biscuit” (which is actually a stupid arse phrase, let’s be real). How well did that work out for Arians last year with grabbing Nkemdiche while Noah Spence and Ogbah were still on the board? He played to his rep and got 1 tackle all year. Stick to the board. And yes, that means DC if he’s there and your board has him as BPA.

  39. Mikadeemas Says:

    Gotta agree with NOSBOS. I nominate Dal-Ass Dave for JBF D!ck of the year! What a miserable muthaf#cka!! And hey Dave, GO BUCS!!!

  40. Lord Cornelius Says:

    “Only one more week of this conjecture. Ss for speed in pads, that’s nice and all but DC’s speed is predicated on his ability to fight traffic and get outside, ”

    what? The main point with his speed as that on the field he is one of the fastest players in the country despite his combine #s which didn’t seem to indicate he was that explosive. Doesn’t matter where he was on the field (outside / in the middle / whatever type run play / was it a pass play / etc) – since it’s just showing the top speed they ever hit compared to the top speed every other player ever hit. All these top backs have multiple long runs on tape where they’d hit their top speed… it’s not like Dalvin’s number was artificially inflated because he ran outside the tackles while no other back ever did this lol… this is when we know we have way too much time on our hands and I’m excited to finally end the waiting

  41. Kobe Faker Says:

    Peter Schragers fascination of Todd Licht is equaled only tp my love for Jenna Laine. Captain Fear has more credibility than Schrager

    “Cook will drop and we will pass and instead draft a defensive player for Mike Smith”

    1 Buc Mole

  42. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    A lot of us here talk about Winston getting what he wants, so the pick will be Cook. What if Winston told Licht that he doesn’t want Cook? I’d think they would be more likely to not draft a player based on Winston’s wishes than to draft a player because of them. Just a theory.

  43. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    ☺I like to say this will likely be last time we are at great odds prior to the draft. I firmly believe we’ll be drafting later in the draft going forward therefore the anticipation of draft night will be considerably lesser. I love this s@$!, give me something other than awaiting my workday everyday.

  44. DallasBuc Says:

    Nosbos where you getting your intel on me from? Hate to break it to you but you got me mixed up with someone else. It’s funny tho you flying off the chain about it with such certitude!

  45. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    I would be shock by that 75. I think the bond between those two is closer than people realize. Fameis changed FSU man. When he hit his charm took over the entire program. You see it with other players thru out the league now. They love the young man and wanna be in the trenches with him.. Fameis makes you more accountable, you find yourself not wanting too let him down.

  46. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Shut when grown people talking Dave.

  47. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Yo crazy @$$.

  48. DallasBuc Says:

    Nosbos is a regular Matlock over here, bumbling and stumbling and gurgling Cooknuts!

  49. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Know d@$! well that was you that called into that radio station.

  50. DallasBuc Says:

    Did I disturb you slapping the Ion care in the Cooknuts?

  51. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Nole, I disagree about that one. If we are picking at 32 next year there will be two RTs that we are all arguing over witch one to pick.

  52. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Maybe so 75 we’ll see at that time I suppose.

  53. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Dave go find yo self some business. I know it was yo crazy @$$ because you responding.

  54. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Screaming in the phone like that what’s wrong wit you.

  55. Steven007 Says:


    I’m not sure what you’re taking issue with. I am in agreement with the numbers; I don’t dispute them. I simply said that when he’s in the open field – i.e., when he’s bounced it outside, that’s when he flies (as has been mentioned many times before, he has far fewer long runs that develop between the tackles). And he did it well in college and we don’t know how well he’ll do it (be able to bounce it outside) in the NFL. Now if he DOES I’m sure we’ll see that same speed. If however unlikely he all of a sudden develops the ability to be a great inside runner and breaks free I’m sure he’ll be fast there, but that’s clearly not his strength. So again, not sure what you have issue with in my comment.

  56. DallasBuc Says:

    I have never one time called into a radio station. Sorry pal. It ain’t that easy smart guy.

  57. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Next weekend we can start talking about Bucs players again instead of the 300 or so guys who won’t be on the team!

  58. DallasBuc Says:

    Because I’m responding that’s how you think you know? More of that same junk science you are applying to your draft analysis! You are one of a kind nosbos! Dalvin sure does appreciate all you do…

  59. Fred E. Buc Says:

    Just say no to Cook. As for Jameis, I’m betting they had a looong talk already about draft speculation. Oh, and…you can bet Jameis doesn’t know…anyway. One thing this Buc regime does very well, for right reasons, is separate the exectives, from the managers, from the coaches, from the players, and from the non-manager employees. I’d bet less than five people, other than the Bucs owners, know the draft plan…which is subject to change.

  60. d-roca Says:

    People already have carolina taking a rb lol. Not sure why people get caught up in mock drafts. Theyre fun to look at, thats it. Every year the draft goes the same way, unexpected. Someone in the top 5 will make an unexpected move or trade then everything gets thrown off. Looking forward to it. Its a passing league now n games will always be won upfront. That should tell you the which positions will dominate the 1st round. Go bucs

  61. Steven007 Says:

    In complete agreement, Fred E.

  62. Mo_Downs Says:

    1) Tenn DE Bennett (The Next Reggie White)
    2) OK RB Mixon (Cover of Madden 19)
    3) SS Obi (The next Chicago Legend/ SS Mike Brown)
    4) WR Chris Godwin (The Next Jerry Rice)

    2 future All Pros for Koetter, 2 future All Pros for Mike Smith


    Git’ er Done..!!!

    I’m not tripping’ about a TE. Mixon and Godwin will more than make up for having a pure blocker start at TE2. The possibilities are endless for Koetter.

    So Brate starts and is replaced by Godwin in spread (4WR) sets. Did I mention that both Mixon and especially Godwin are willing blockers?

    Am I concerned about SLB..??

    If, like me, you like to go in-depth on players and watch film breakdowns on draft prospects, I recommend watching “Voch Lombardi’s Film Sessions 2017”
    I especially want you to watch his breakdown of each the top (Fournette, Mixon, Cook, McCaffrey, et al) RB’s.

    I promise you won’t be disappointed…and will laugh…a lot..!!
    This guy narrates like Dave Chappell…Enjoy..!!

  63. Ocala Says:

    The Bucs need an elite back
    Right now the Bucs have arguably the worst running backs in the NFL

    I’m very hopeful we have a shot at Drafting Dalvin Cook.

  64. Oxycondoms Says:

    It’s funny how people want to pass on cook because if the bucs do they for sure will get a stud with the 19th pick.

  65. Lord Cornelius Says:

    Steven I guess I just didn’t get the point the comment but now I realize it’s your issue with his ability to run inside moreso than anything about the top speed.

    The top speed is pretty relevant to his evaluation imo mostly because his speed has been questioned due to his combine tests.. but if he was the 2nd fastest guy on the field in all of college football that kind of gives pause to this idea that he’s not a superb athlete or extremely explosive

    I think he can run pretty well inside although most his biggest plays were probably outside runs. But some of his biggest plays were still inside runs; and you don’t score 40 TDs in 2 years without having some ability to run through the middle / run in short yardage situations

  66. Chris Says:

    Im liking Foreman from Texas, just as fast as Cook , but at 237. But I wont be unhappy if we get Cook.

  67. Gambelero Says:

    Great trade craft Joe, but what is AQ supposed to say? He played with Cook for a few months, but they clearly weren’t close friends. There’s only a small probability of getting him. If we do, a guy he played with for several years like Martin or Barber or Sims or maybe two of the three are gone. Why pine aggressively for something that probably isn’t going to happen? Instead, you do the politically correct thing and say “He’s too good to be around at 19.”

    As for whether or not we should take him, absolutely–unless there’s a tangible medical issue. The problem is that if there definitely isn’t a medical problem, he’s long gone before 19.

  68. Eric Says:

    All he said was he expects Cook to be drafted before the bucs pick.

    That is trumpeting his virtues.

  69. Eric Says:

    Nosbos, do yourself a big favor and learn how to spell and make complete sentences. You do realize you sound like the idiot when you attempt to make a good comment. Maybe Joe can add a spellcheck and grammar check button to decipher your hood talk.

    Dallas simply toys with you and you just don’t get it. I almost feel sorry for you but it’s definitely entertaining.Stop lying about having a job, Cook watch doesn’t count as an occupation, neither does riding his jock.
    Only Cook’s mother or a stalker ex-girlfriend would defend him at all costs despite all of his flaws. Top ten talent…what a freaking joke. So sorry to break it to you but he is no AP…not even close. I look forward to bathing in your tears when the Buc’s pass on his a$$.

  70. Trubucfan22 Says:

    It’s possible to move up. Anything is possible. But it would be idiotic to move up to draft an injury prone, second day talent, RB.

  71. Skipper Says:

    Hey Gencoimports, remember when the Bucs drafted Gaines Adams with Adrian Peterson on the board? Every position is hit or miss.

  72. Bucsfanman Says:

    @DB55- 1) I prefer the bruiser RB myself. I’d draft Fournette over Cook all day long, that’s me.
    2) No way is Shep more valuable than Conte. Before you fall off your couch laughing, how many snaps did Shep Play? Conte?
    3) We desperately need a kicker. You’re on notice Aguayo!!!
    4) Yeah, our 2minute defense stinks. We give up waaaaaay too many chunk yards with the game on the line. I pose this: was the QB under pressure when Tandy got the pick? You have to have both: D-line and Secondary.

  73. RjBucnut Says:

    Think ur reading too much into this Joe. If u recall when Jameis was giving his half time pep talk to the dogs and puppies of a game they were losing and stated Cook was the best running back in the country. Maybe it’s off the field stuff Jamie’s doesn’t like but it’s def not the talent. Heard Cook likes to hang out w thugs.

  74. SCBucsFan Says:

    We have two injury prone backs already. We don’t need another in Cook.

  75. DoNUTS Says:

    OL/DL at 19.

  76. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    Let’s see. RB’s have shorter shelf life because of the pounding they take. WR’s generally last longer historically. Therefore the logic goes we should always be taking WR’s…helll virtually any position over an RB because they have shorter careers than the other positions. Yeah that’s the ticket. RB is simply not an important position on the field…they only touch the ball twenty time or so….

    I get all the debates focused on the various players….there is a lot to debate!!! But I do not get the debate by RB’s in the first etc. And I do get that position effects the desires of teams…so for example…safeties are among the lowest paid and RB’s do not make the money of stud LT’s and other spots deemed more valuable. But one overriding fact is that draft success increases with higher picks than lower picks in EVERY organization at EVERY position.

    Do we want an adequate RB…or simply a competent RB…say Doug Martin in the two years he was DECENT. Do we care if our RB continually gets hauled down from behind in the open field? Do we care if we have a mauler…an Eddie Lacy or Marshawn Lynch type….Green Bay Packer fan who just graduated Texas told me that Foreman is Eddie Lacy all over again and this guy loved Lacy.

    Bottom line there are lots of questions for any draft pick but I simply do not feel that comfortable with all the bromides… RB in the first round etc.

  77. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    BTW in the RB debate…I see three player who have been generational in their last positions. Cook is clearly in that group! He is considered one of the very best RB’s to ever play at a school with a solid history. Same could be said of Fournette and McCaffery although with McCaffery I’m not sure Stanford has produced the same quality RB’s as FSU and LSU….but at least a case could be made for McCaffery.

    After that who stands out as generational? Mixon? Really? With his inconsistent numbers? He an excellent back but has done NOTHING generational or even exceptional at his present level.

    Foreman is the only other guy with that kind of claim…100 yards rushing in EVERY game breaking the legendary Earl Campbell’s Texas marks.

    It’s all a crap shoot….but I like players who have been exceptional at every level…still a gamble in the jump to the NFL…but I like proven exceptionalism.

  78. firethecannons Says:

    trade down with Texans or Chiefs or who ever interested, then get Cook , like we did with VH3 Jameis aint backing Dalvin–makes you wonder–there is a story there.

  79. Lord Cornelius Says:

    The reason a RB in R1 (or early in general) makes sense for us more so than an average NFL team is because we have the a franchise QB entering his 3rd year and we should prioritize making his life as easy as possible.

    Look at what the run game did for Mariota last year and their offense. Both their backs are better than ours (and their O-line as well). Winston would love to dump screen passes for easy TDs or hand the ball off instead of having to rope it between 3 defenders in traffic.

  80. Jarrett Says:

    He will still be there at 19 and we will pass for a position that is worth a first rounder like defensive line or db

  83. Trubucfan22 Says:

    I dont know about that lord corn… Jameis loves it when the pressure is on and he has to make a tough play. He thrives in those situations and isn’t afraid to let it rip, even in triple coverage.

    I think he would much rather throw a 50 yard bomb than a 50 yard screen pass. I think it’s in his blood to take a risk instead of taking the easy play.

    No Dalvin you mentally deficient tard!

  87. Tval Says:

    Philly wants him at 14

  88. DalvinCookIsAhBust Says:

    We aren’t drafting Dalvin Cook he is trash. I see is getting Mixon in the 2nd Ed who is a better talent anyways

  89. Joeypoppems Says:

    Didn’t Licht also mention that he doesnt make picks based off of fans opinions? And Booger mentioned on Commish’s podcast that they are also interested in Mixon. And Licht pretty much pleaded the 5th when asked if Mixon was off their board.

    Maybe Mixon is an actual possibility?

  90. DPewter Says:

    Bucs are clearly higher on Doug Martin than Cook, enough said.
