Chris Cook (6’2″, 212 lbs.) was the 34th overall pick in the 2010 draft. Practically a first-rounder. #49ers on their value game.

Cook has shown flashes, but for the most part has been a big disappointment so far in the NFL. The former Virginia Cavalier played in just six games in each of his first two seasons, has never played in more than 12 games in a season and has zero career interceptions.
Cook had 47 tackles in 2013.
