Of the many offseason moves that have made the 2017 New England Patriots' roster seemingly even better on paper than the team that just won the Super Bowl, the addition of speedster Brandin Cooks is perhaps the most exciting.
The Patriots stole Cooks from New Orleans in a heist of a trade to give Tom Brady his first legit deep threat since Randy Moss, and after hearing Cooks describe his impression of Brady since arriving in New England, Colin Cowherd predicted that Cooks will have a monster year in 2017.
Brandin Cooks on Tom Brady's study habits:
“It’s amazing. His attention to detail and how focused he is is something that I look at him and I try to [strive] for, to be just like that. Obviously the game’s on TV, he’s amazing, but to see him now in person and his study habits is awesome.”

Tom Brady will make Brandin Cooks an MVP-caliber player
“I’ll make a prediction right now. I am going to predict that Brandin Cooks will have 1,500 yards receiving. You think I’m crazy, right?
"I think he’s going to be in the MVP [discussion], he’s going to be an Antonio Brown-level player with Brady. I honestly believe that.”
