3/27 Entry @ 9:15 p.m. -- Dalvin Cook to the Bucs?

In the latest mock draft by Tony Grossi of ESPN.com today, the Cleveland Browns reporter picked Dalvin Cook to go #19 overall to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Grossi had Cook as the second RB off the board behind LSU's Leonard Fournette (#4 to Jacksonville) and one spot ahead of Stanford's Christian McCaffery.

If this scenario were to play out, Cook would join former Noles Dax Dellenbach, Garrison Sanborn, Javien Elliott, Roberto Aguayo and some guy named Jameis Winston.

3/27 Entry @ 7 a.m. -- Dalvin Cook is PFF's #1 RB for the 2017 NFL Draft

The 2017 NFL Draft begins one month from today on April 27th. Pro Football Focus, one of the leaders in player scouting and analyzing, has released their list of the top 15 running back prospects heading into the draft.

Topping their list is Florida State star, Dalvin Cook. Here is what they had to say about Cook and their grading of him compared to other running backs in this class:

1. Dalvin Cook, Florida State

Cook has outstanding vision and patience to allow blocks to develop in zone-blocking schemes. His acceleration when he makes a decision is elite, and he is one of the best at making defenders miss. Cook is capable of overcoming poor blocking, and he led the nation with 99 total missed tackles forced last season. He needs to vastly-improve his ball security and in pass protection, but his big-play ability outweighs those enough to keep the top spot.
