    Childress on Cook

    The Vikings didn't re-sign veteran offensive tackle Mike Rosenthal, and one reason might be that coach Brad Childress says he sees a good future for 2006 second-round draft choice Ryan Cook, who did get some playing time last season...

    Re: Childress on Cook

    Cook was said to be too tall to be a pro center, so he's going to have to make it as a RT.
    He earned his keep last year, and this year he will be kept because he can backup Birk at C.
    But if he doesn't improve at RT, he may be cut or demoted to the bench in favor of a good RT, despite the fact he can play C.
    He will only be used as a center if Birk is injured.


    I hope Cook does well at RT in mini-camp so the Vikings don't have to pursue a RT and backup C too soon; i.e the 2007 draft, or in 2008, because there are more pressing needs on O this year.

    I wonder what brought on this question by the reporter about Cook?
    ???

    Re: Childress on Cook

    I thought Cook played pretty well last year. He made some rookie mistakes (some false starts if I recall) but I thought he did pretty well for a rookie. He was better than Marcus "Revolving Door" Johnson, that's for sure.

    He definitely has the Height to play tackle in the NFL, it's just we don't know if he'll live up to his potential. I guess we'll have to see with time.

    Re: Childress on Cook

    I like the Cook draft last year.

    The multiple positions thing appealed to me.
    Last season, with Birk coming back from injury, it was a great pick up to have in place under the circumstances.
    Cook could be our center in the future??

    They say he is too tall to be a center, so i doubt we will see him as our future C. He will be our RT, hopefully if he pans out

    This is partly why re-signing Birk to an extension is pivotal to solidifying and stabilizing the OL for several years.

    Re: Childress on Cook

    I hope we get a deal done with Birk, but I can't blame them for waiting a year. Cook showed some good stuff last year, he got his feet wet last year and now he should start to get comfortable at T. Hopefully he turns out to be another good pick by Childress.

    Thanks Josdin00 for the sig!
