Prior to the 2021 season, senior running back James Cook was one of many players to announce that he would be returning for one final season at Georgia due to "unfinished business." However, looking back at what Cook has done for Georgia's offense, it is very clear that coming back to Georgia for one more season was one of the best decisions he made.

James Cook was a superstar at Miami Central High School he led them to a 10-4 record as a 2-way player in 2017 as he rushed for 782 yards and 10 TDs on 91 carries while also making three interceptions and two defensive TDs. He also competed in the 100m, 200m, 400m, and shot put for the Miami Central track team and is the younger brother of Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook. (Source: www.nfldraftbuzz.com)

Run

In a deep 2022 NFL Draft running back class, Cook has the potential to separate himself with his multi-faceted ability. Moreover, the limited tread on his tires — only five career games with 10+ carries — will prove alluring to NFL teams. At present, he could be looking at a very early Day 3 selection. However, he has the opportunity to solidify himself as a Day 2 prospect with a good showing at the Senior Bowl.

In addition to rushing and pass-catching ability, the NFL evaluates running backs on their ability to block. Cook is an extremely willing blocker both in pass protection and as a run blocker. He’s routinely tasked with chip blocking, and there were multiple examples of him getting out in front and blocking downfield in the games studied. Furthermore, he routinely looks for work in this regard, demonstrating a level of football intelligence. (Source: www.profootballnetwork.com)

Following in family footsteps is no easy feat, especially when every news outlet wants to refer to you as the little brother. However, Georgia running back James Cook is more than just Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook’s younger brother in this 2022 NFL Draft class. Cook’s scouting report reveals a legitimate pro prospect who is ascending draft boards following a standout senior season. (Source: www.profootballnetwork.com)
