The Rookie Diary Week 16: James Cook premiere

Every NFL Wednesday, the Rookie Diary honors the most prominent rookies. The best offensive beginner, his defensive alter ego, the action, the revelation of the week, the flop… And, to finish, the Power Rooking. Everything, you will know everything about the Rookies!

Offensive Rookie of the Week

James Cook – RB – Buffalo Bills (63rd pick)
11 carries, 99 yards, 1 touchdown, 1 reception, 9 yards

Have the Bills finally found their runner? Still early to say, but in any case, James Cook is asserting itself week after week as a reliable solution in the backfield. If he had accustomed us to being mainly used in passing, Dalvin’s brother showed that he also knew how to be a pure runner. 9 yards per rush and a touchdown, ideal to establish Buffalo’s offensive domination a little more. A welcome reinforcement a few weeks before the playoffs.

Defensive Rookie of the Week

Marcus Jones – Cornerback – New England Patriots (85th pick)
14 tackles, 1 interception, 1 pass defensed, 1 fumble covered, 1 tackle for loss, 1 touchdown

Despite his huge game, his team failed (by little) against the solid Bengals. However, the new darling of the New England secondary had made the end of the game painful for his opponents, with in particular a fumble covered at the end of the game giving the Pats a chance to take the lead. With his pick 6, Jones achieves the incredible performance of having scored a touchdown on the 3 phases of play, special teams, attack and defense. Masterful.

Special Mention: Cobie Durant – Cornerback – Los Angeles Rams (142nd pick)
2 tackles, 2 interceptions, 2 passes defended, 1 touchdown

In the card of the week, the Rams punished the Broncos in all aspects of the game. And our revelation of the 2nd week brought its stone to the building. Not only did he intercept Russell Wilson twice, but he returned one of them for a touchdown, digging the Broncos’ head deeper into the ground.

action of the week

Malik Willis – Quarterback – Tennessee Titans (86th pick)

If he could not avoid a new defeat of his people, Malik Willis nevertheless illustrated himself on an action which highlights his ability to advance on the ground. On this 14-yard race, the quarterback resists no less than 4 tackles and shows great shock resistance to go and register his first career touchdown.
