Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Perfect draft pair: FSU RB Dalvin Cook (Round 1, pick 19); Florida CB Teez Tabor (Round 2, pick 50)

Brooks on Cook: Cook was a terrific playmaker at Florida State, and he's explosive running between the tackles. He also has the burst and wiggle to take it the distance, catch the ball out of the backfield. He's everything you're looking for as an RB1.

Jeremiah on Tabor: You can team him up with last year's first-round pick, Vernon Hargreaves -- they were teammates in college. Tabor famously ran slow at his pro day, an awful time in the 4.7s. I didn't think speed was a major issue when I studied him on tape, but that will drop him down. At pick No. 50, I think it makes sense to take him.
