Brandin Cooks leaving Oregon State a year early

  Brandin Cooks, the Oregon State receiver who had a remarkably productive 2013 season, announced today he’s heading to the NFL draft a year early. It’s an obvious, but not totally unexpected, loss for the Beavers, who now await decisions by quarterback Sean Mannion and defensive end Scott Crichton.

In winning the 2013 Biletnikoff Award, Cooks put up crazy numbers this year — 128 catches for 1,730 yards. Both those are Pac-12 records, and to appreciate the volume of receptions, consider that the No. 2 pass-catcher, Paul Richardson of Colorado, had 83 — 45 catches behind Cooks.
