Who is James Cook

From 2018-2020, James never exceeded 50 carries in a season due to the crazy depth in the Running Back room with NFL talents D'Andre Swift, Elijah Hoylfield, and Zamir White. Though he never exceeded 50 rush attempts, Cook was able to pull in 40 receptions during those three seasons. His Senior year in 2021 was a bit different, though the depth was still there with fellow 2022 prospect Zamir White, Cook finished with 113 carries, averaging 6.4 yards per carry and reeling in 27 receptions and scoring 11 total touchdowns with a National Championship win.

James Cook was selected in the 2nd round of the 2022 NFL Draft by the Buffalo Bills. He enters a crowded backfield in which the Bills have redundant two down backs in Singletary and Moss. Outside of Singletary and Moss eating into his potential work on the first two downs, he could become the Bill’s pass catching back. However, Josh Allen has rushing upside and a variety of passing options that can win against opposing defenses.
