Brandin Cooks

Wide receiver | Oregon State

The big question with Cooks was whether he'd have success without Markus Wheaton playing opposite him. But as the season progressed, he shattered those expectations with 120 receptions for a nation-best 1,670 yards and 15 touchdowns. Cooks' 120 catches set the single-season mark by a Pac-12 receiver, breaking Marqise Lee's record of 118 set last season at USC. He's just the fifth Pac-12 receiver in league history to have more than 100 catches in a year. He led the conference with 10 catches per game and 13.9 yards per catch, and 60 percent of the time Cooks caught a ball, it led to either an Oregon State touchdown or first down. -- Kevin Gemmell
