2014 NFL Draft First Round Grades: New Orleans Saints



20th Overall Pick: Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon St.

When I saw the Saints trade up, I assumed it was going to be for Clinton-Dix or Dennard, both would have been excellent selection. Instead, the Saints went with another receiving option for Brees. Many people saw Cooks going in the first half of round one, so this is a solid value. The Saints gave up a third round selection to move up to 20, which isn't bad considering that pick is obviously very late in round three. This is an overall solid selection.

GRADE: B
