With Ezekiel Elliott off to the NFL — Dalvin Cook can poke his chest out a little bit.
Cook — Florida State’s star tailback — thinks he’s the best of a crowded running back group that includes Leonard Fournette of LSU and Stanford’s Christian McCaffrey.
“I am,” Cook said. “I’m confident I am.”
Cook was asked the question Friday during an interview with ESPNU at the ACC Kickoff media event. Cook (5-foot-11, 206 pounds) has been compared to Chris Johnson, and gained 1,935 all-purpose yards last season.
