Cook (knee) has been doing some work on the field during the Vikings' voluntary offseason program, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. "Really, Dalvin's knocked the rehab out of the park," Vikings athletic trainer Eric Sugarman said. "He's done a great job. He's been here every day since the injury occurred post-surgery. He'll participate in [Organized Team Activities and minicamp] on a limited basis. Then the plan is for him, hopefully when he gets to training camp he'll be a participant just like everybody else."

2017

Hugely productive at Florida State, Cook saw his draft stock tumble due to off-field concerns and some ball security issues, but the Vikings snapped him up in the second round anyway as their potential replacement for Adrian Peterson. Cook looks the part of a lead back at 5-10, 213, and while his speed and elusiveness make him dangerous in the open field, his patience and ability to set up would-be tacklers are his best assets. Those traits may not play as well as they could in Minnesota, however. The Vikings' offensive line was terrible in 2016, and while they did attempt to bolster the unit in the offseason by signing tackle Riley Reiff away from the Lions and selecting Ohio State center Pat Elflein in the third round, Cook's vision and guile may not help him much if he's dodging defenders in the backfield instead of on the other side of the line of scrimmage. The club also signed former Raiders lead back Latavius Murray, who was expected to compete with the rookie for the starting role but was still recovering from offseason ankle surgery when training camp opened. It's not out of the question Cook ends up as the most productive NFL back from a stacked 2017 draft class.
