I agree with all of that and I didn't mean perfectly interchangeable. I just meant interchangeable enough to where they both can run slants, posts, flys, quick hitches, etc.
Obviously Stills doesn't have that same explosiveness that Cooks has so he won't be running stuff like the quick option or WR screen and stuff that relies on great initial burst.
I actually think Stills is a great do it all wideout in that he can run any traditional route and be effective enough at it.
On the flipside, while Cooks can run the speed routes and quick hitters, I'm not sure how effective he would be running Colston type routes.
I definitely didn't mean both are fast so they do exactly the same thing. Maybe I could have been more clear but it was just meant to be a quick example.
And no problem.
I'm actually more curious what people think of the new Dlinemen and LBs we picked up and where they might fit. I tried to read up as best I could and watched some highlights on some of them but they are hard to project. I also imagine there is a lot of overlap which makes it harder.
