Jared Cook, TE
Average Draft Pick – 148.7
Jared Cook is currently being drafted in what would be the 12th round of a 12-team draft. That is a steal for the production that you get out of Cook. His role might even be expanding last year with the presence of Emmanuel Sanders.
Over the last two seasons, Cook has scored over 180 points per season. Average that out, Cook is scoring over 11 points per game. That is just as much as current Giants tight end Evan Engram, whose current ADP is 85.1 and good enough to crack the top 10.
That means that you are getting a tight end who could potentially be a top 10 talent in the 12th round of your draft. That would free up multiple spots in the earlier rounds for you to bolster your receivers or your running backs.
There are only four games in this current season where Cook isn’t projected at least 10 points. His ceiling is high in a Saints’ offense that could explode for three to four touchdowns per game which is a high average for an offense, and Cook will benefit from that.
