Record setting Beaver receiver the 20th pick in the NFL Draft

Brandin Cooks, the leading receiver in Oregon St. history, and the 2013 Biletnikoff Award winner, has been drafted by the New Orleans Saints in the 2014 NFL draft.

Cooks is the 4th wide receiver taken in the draft, but it could be one of the best possible landing spots for Cooks, who will get to be a target for Drew Brees, and play a majority of his games indoors, and in good weather climates.

Cooks had 128 catches for 1,730 yards, both Pac-12 single season records, never mind Oregon St. records, and 16 touchdowns last season.

Cooks holds the Oregon St. career touchdown catch record as well, with 24. He hauled in 226 catches for 3,272 yards in just 3 years as a Beaver.

Cooks also impressed at the NFL Combine, winning a 6 figure bonus with a 4.33 40 sprint.

The Saints traded up from their 27th pick to the 20th choice that was originally the Arizona Cardinals' in order to secure Cooks' services, giving Arizona their 3rd round pick, the 91st pick overall, in order to swap first round choices.

Cooks is the 6th first round draft choice in Oregon St. history, but the first in 10 years, since Steven Jackson, and the highest since Heisman Trophy winner Terry Baker 51 years ago.
