Bust: Jared Cook

If you’re a man and prefer the company of women, you know that sometimes you fall for the wrong one. You are wooed by long eyelashes and stunning looks. Cook is that version of a tight end. He ended 2010 and 2011 with promise, leading many to put him on the sleeper list. We didn't see a third straight strong finish, as he tore his rotator cuff late in the season.

In four years, Cook has yet to top 49 catches, 759 yards, and four touchdowns. The last number is important. Cook may be a physical freak, but he is not a goal-line target. He can run fast in a straight line, but lining up in the correct spot and ending up where the QB expects him to go are not strengths.

The Rams actually have other targets now, with rookies Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailay added to the roster. If you wait on tight end and think that Cook’s your man, look another direction.
