Position Rank: RB #3
Conference Rank: ACC #2
Team Rank: Florida State #1
Florida State running back Dalvin Cook is one of the nation’s most explosive offensive weapons and is a dynamic force whenever he takes the field. Cook averaged a whopping 7.4 yards per carry last season on his way to piling up 1,691 rushing yards and 20 total touchdowns. Cook was named a second team All-American and first team All-ACC performer last season, and he returns to Tallahassee as a preseason Heisman candidate. In 2016, Cook will once again do the heavy lifting for a Seminole offense that recently lost quarterback Sean Maguire to a foot injury. Cook and Florida State hope to improve on a 10-3 mark last season and make a return to the College Football Playoff this year.
