There is no question that I have been high on Oregon State WR Brandin Cooks. A versatile threat as Cooks can easily replace San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James in the return game while being the missing deep-threat on the outside, Cooks would be an ideal fit. And while his NFL dreams have yet to come to fruition as he will have to wait a couple more weeks, he wasted no time in giving back to the one person that gave him life, his mother.

In this video, Cooks surprised his Mother with a brand new vehicle. A good character and kind-hearted kid, it’s no wonder the 49ers are high on him as Senior Personnel Assistant Ethan Waugh was at his pro day.

With the NFL Draft right around the corner, we will keep you all updated on the latest news surrounding the team as it unfolds.
