After four games so far this season, Cooks leads the nation in all receiving categories:  43 catches, 639 yards and 7 TDs. He's on pace to break all kinds of records this year and is coming off a career-high 14 catches in a win against San Diego State.

Cooks is catching everything thrown his way and he's making plays with the ball. He is probably the fastest receiver in the country -- I'm talking Tavon Austin-esque speed. He's definitely suited to be a slot receiver in the NFL but his route-running is good; he isn't limited to easy routes over the middle.

He's currently playing at an unreal level, and if he can partially sustain it through the rest of the season, I don't see why he won't be drafted in the first round.
