Dalvin Cook High school career

Dalvin Cook did not join the football program until his sophomore year, figuring he had no chance to supplant senior running back Devonta Freeman, who led Central to a Class 6A state title in 2010. Cook played as a running back and defensive back under coach Telly Lockette. In his junior year, he shared carries with Joseph Yearby, who is his best friend.

On running downs, Yearby played wildcat quarterback and Cook lined up at running back. As a senior in 2013, Cook rushed for a county-best 1,940 yards and 34 touchdowns on 177 carries (11.0 yards per rush) and intercepted three passes on defense. In Central’s Class 6A regional final win against Palm Bay Heritage, Cook ran for 244 yards and three touchdowns as Yearby fractured his fibula in the first quarter of the game.

From that point on, Cook led his team to the Class 6A state championship by rushing for 223 yards and four touchdowns in a 52–7 win over Seffner Armwood, helping the Rockets win their third state championship in the past four seasons and become the first Dade team to advance to four consecutive state finals.

For his season efforts, Cook was named Mr. Florida Football by the Florida Dairy Farmers Association, becoming the third recipient of the award since its inception (back in 1992) from Miami-Dade County, joining former Miami Northwestern quarterback Jacory Harris and former Miami Norland running back Duke Johnson.

He finished his prep career with 4,267 rushing yards and 64 touchdowns while leading Miami Central to a 52–5 record. His senior season accolades included USA Today All-USA Football Team, 247Sports Second Team All-American and All-State Class 6A first-team. Following his senior season, Cook was invited to play at 2014 Under Armour All-America Game, where he rushed for 78 yards and a touchdown on just eight carries for Team Nitro.

He also participated in “The Opening”, an all-star summer prospect camp held on the Nike Campus. In track & field, Cook was one of the state’s top sprinters. He recorded a personal-best time of 22.10 seconds in the 200-meter dash at the 2013 Sam Burley Invitational, where he placed 13th. At the 2013 FHSAA 3A Region 4, he ran the third leg on the Miami Central 4 × 100 m relay and 4 × 400 m relay squads, helping them win both events with times of 41.15 seconds and 3:17.58 minutes, respectively.

In the preliminary rounds of the 2013 GMAC North Qualifier, he was clocked at 10.08 seconds (heavily wind-aided) in the 100-meter dash, but would later run a 10.92 to earn a fifth-place finish in the finals. Regarded as a five-star recruit by Rivals.com, Cook was ranked as the second-best all-purpose back in his class. Before he signed with Florida State in January 2014, he had already taken the summer and night classes necessary to graduate high school early and enroll in the spring.

He is committed to Clemson University, then flipped to the University of Florida under coach Will Muschamp in the spring of 2013. However, after Florida’s 4–8 season that year, the 5-star running back began wavering on his pledge privately. Despite officially visiting other schools, Cook claimed he was “100 percent” committed to the University of Florida in every interview. During the week of the Under Armour All-America Game, he did the Gator Chomp on social media and posed for a picture with Florida commits after one of the practices. On January 1, 2014, Cook flipped to Florida State University.

Dalvin Cook Professional career

Cook received an invitation to the NFL combine and completed all of the required combine drills and positional drills. He participated at Florida State’s Pro Day and ran the 40-yard dash, 20-yard dash, 10-yard dash, and positional drills. He was ranked as the top running back in the draft by Sports Illustrated and Pro Football Focus, the second-best running back by NFL media analyst Bucky Brooks, and the third best running back by NFLDraftScout.com and NFL analyst Mike Mayock.

Although he was considered to be one of the top running backs, off-the-field problems, prior arrests, character concerns, fumbling issues, and a history of shoulder injuries caused his stock to fall. NFL draft experts and analysts projected Cook to be selected in the first or second round of the draft. The Minnesota Vikings selected Cook in the second round (41st overall) of the 2017 NFL Draft.

The Cincinnati Bengals traded the 41st overall pick to the Vikings for their second-round draft selection (No. 48) and their fourth-round selection (No. 128).

During Week 4 against the Detroit Lions, Cook left the game with an apparent knee injury. The next day, it was revealed that Cook suffered a torn ACL, and it prematurely ended his rookie season. He was officially placed on injured reserve on October 5, 2017.

In four games in his rookie year, Cook finished with 354 rushing yards. On October 9, 2017, Cook underwent successful repair of the left ACL.  Noted Orthopaedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews of Gulf Breeze, Florida noted no further damage of the left knee with “100 percent,” chance of a return for the 2018 season.

In the 2018 season opener, his first game back from injury, Cook had 95 scrimmage yards in the 24–16 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. In Week 15 of the 2018 season, Cook rushed for 136 yards and two touchdowns in a 41–17 win over the Miami Dolphins, earning him NFC Offensive Player of the Week. Overall, he recorded 615 rushing yards, two rushing touchdowns, 40 receptions, 305 receiving yards, and two receiving touchdowns in the 2018 season.

Dalvin Cook Legal issues

During his freshman year at FSU, Cook was involved in off-field incidents on three occasions. He was charged with criminal mischief after a June BB gun incident that resulted in broken car windows. In July, according to an ESPN report, Cook was named as an “associate” in an assault case of two men the Tallahassee police investigated for allegedly brandishing a firearm at a neighbor; the incident took place at Cook’s apartment.

The summer before his sophomore year, Cook was accused of punching a woman outside of a Tallahassee bar after a confrontation and was charged with assault, to which he pled not guilty. A jury found Cook not guilty, and he was able to return to the football team.

Dalvin Cook Injury

Dalvin Cook the Minnesota Vikings running back said Monday he’s still recovering from a hamstring injury that kept him out of action in Week 3 and limited him to just 10 carries against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 4.  “This thing is still healing up. I want to be 100 percent as bad as everybody else wants me to 100 percent.

But I’m just not there yet,” he said, per Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. “I just got to keep chipping away. But I’m going to be ready when the time comes, though.” Injuries have been the major storyline in Cook’s young career. Cook, a 2017 second-round pick, started strong during his rookie season, rushing for 354 yards and two touchdowns in his first four games. But a torn ACL ended that campaign and led to a lengthy rehab.
