An anonymous NFL scout has high praise for Florida State running back Dalvin Cook, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

“He can score from any spot on the field,” the scout said. “Pound for pound I think he’s the best all-around back I’ve ever done.”

Another scout compared Cook to Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman.

“He’ll be in the mode of Freeman,” one scout said. “I absolutely love that guy. He can take over a game. What makes him special is his first 10 yards. His acceleration rate is awesome. Good enough hands. People will try to kill his character, and to a degree he may slide.”

Cook’s draft stock has varied due to numerous off-field incidents and a history of injuries during his career.

According to CBSSports.com, Cook has undergone three surgeries since high school and the potential long-term effects could prevent teams from selecting him in the first round. He also reportedly scored a disappointing 11 on his Wonderlic test.

“He’s a small back,” a third scout said. “Ran 4.5, 30-inch vertical. Where’s the explosive dynamic? And he has questionable makeup.”
