New Orleans Saints rookie first-round wide receiver Brandin Cooks has made a fast impression on his teammates.
Saints cornerback Keenan Lewis calls Cooks "Lightning."
"I called him 'lightning,'" Lewis said. "A (defensive back) might be in his back pocket and the next thing you know he's 50, 60 yards down the field."
Cooks has accelerated away from defenders during practice sessions.
"It's always an honor to have a guy like that," Lewis said. "Not just because of the kind of football player he is, but because he's a good person too."
Cooks won the Fred Biletnikoff Award as the nation's top receiver last season.
He was unable to attend some of the Saints' practices this spring due to Oregon State's academic schedule.
