Bucky Brooks predicts Brandin Cooks to have 70+ receptions

On Friday’s edition of the “Around The League Podcast,” NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks predicted that one rookie wide out would pile up catches.

It was not Sammy Watkins or Mike Evans, but rather Brandin Cooks who could pile up “70-plus catches” as a rookie while supplanting the recently vacated roles of Darren Sproles and Lance Moore in the high-octane aerial attack.

“The fact that the Saints jumped up to get him shows that Sean Payton has a plan for him,” Brooks explained. “And I think that plan could include him being the guy that plays all over the field … He should have a big, big, big season. I’m not a fantasy football player, but I would put a lot of money on Brandin Cooks if he was my guy.”

I don’t feel that Cooks will be the guy to catch seventy balls, I still feel Sammy is the guy to beat for Offensive Rookie of the Year.
