Through the first month last season, Cook looked every bit the part of a true three-down back, piling up 444 scrimmage yards with two touchdowns, 4.8 YPC and four runs of 20 yards or more through his first 14 NFL quarters, but then he blew out his knee just after halftime in Week 4. The silver lining is that his injury happened early in the season, so he should be healthy for the start of the 2018 campaign. The Vikings certainly are counting on it after allowing Jerick McKinnon to leave for San Francisco in free agency. Assuming he's healthy, Cook has every tool you could want in a No. 1 RB. He has the patience to allow holes to develop, the vision and burst to hit them before they close, and the speed and elusiveness to do damage once he hits the second level. His receiving and blocking skills are good enough to keep him on the field in passing situations, and at 5-11, 213, he has the size and strength to handle goal-line duties as well. With Kirk Cousins coming over from Washington and former Eagles QB coach John DeFilippo taking over as coordinator, the Vikings are likely to focus more on their passing attack, but that isn't necessarily a bad sign for Cook's touch volume. The stability of his knee is a greater concern than his role, even after he managed limited participation in team drills at OTAs in May and June.

  2. Dalvin Cook 2017 Preseason Outlook
    Hugely productive at Florida State, Cook saw his draft stock tumble due to off-field concerns and some ball security issues, but the Vikings snapped him up in the second round anyway as their potential replacement for Adrian Peterson. Cook looks the part of a lead back at 5-10, 213, and while his speed and elusiveness make him dangerous in the open field, his patience and ability to set up would-be tacklers are his best assets. Those traits may not play as well as they could in Minnesota, however. The Vikings' offensive line was terrible in 2016, and while they did attempt to bolster the unit in the offseason by signing tackle Riley Reiff away from the Lions and selecting Ohio State center Pat Elflein in the third round, Cook's vision and guile may not help him much if he's dodging defenders in the backfield instead of on the other side of the line of scrimmage. The club also signed former Raiders lead back Latavius Murray, who was expected to compete with the rookie for the starting role but was still recovering from offseason ankle surgery when training camp opened. It's not out of the question Cook ends up as the most productive NFL back from a stacked 2017 draft class.
