Bits and Pieces of Interest to Me
From Jared Cook:
"I’ve always kind of had to use my catch radius and make kind of circus catches,’’ Cook said. "Not so much here. (Bradford) puts it right on the money, and he makes good reads. He’s going to hold onto it before he throws interceptions, which is being a smart quarterback. That’s part of being a veteran quarterback, not making dumb decisions, being conscious about your decision-making.’’
Obviously, Lance has some speed, but now we have (Cook) and Lance, that’s a lot of speed inside. He’s a big body running down the middle of the field. It’s going to be hard for people to match up with him. If they want to put a ‘Mike’ linebacker on him, then we’ll take that matchup all day. It’s just going to give us the ability to open the playbook and kind of stretch the middle of the field and put stress on the defense.’’
From the illustrious Bleacher Report : Power Ranking the 25 Most Impressive Players at OTAs
No. 23 Brian Quick: 2012 second-round pick had a less than ideal rookie campaign for the St. Louis Rams. Catching 11 passes on a desperate offense certainly doesn’t shout impact. But Quick has been sensational so far during OTAs and appears to be on the verge of a breakout season.
Tony Softli of 101 ESPN St. Louis detailed Quick’s impressive OTAs on the stations airwaves.
No. 16 Jared Cook: Cook’s signing was lucrative, worth up to $38.5 million, and drew questions from critics. If OTAs are any indication of Cook’s ceiling in St. Louis, the critics might be silenced.
Reports are that Cook and Bradford have already found a groove during practices. Cook’s rare athleticism for his position makes him one of Bradford’s most lethal targets.
