Vikings surround RB Cook with mentors to smooth transition

MANKATO, Minn. (AP) When the NFL draft resumed for the second round on April 28, all eyes were on Florida State running back Dalvin Cook.

A first-round talent with top-10 production, Cook dropped down the board amid character concerns from several off-the-field incidents in high school and college. That led several league observers to believe the more miles he could put between himself and his chaotic home base in South Florida, the better chance he had to realize his incredible potential.

It's hard to get much farther away than the land of ice and snow in Minnesota, and as Cook looked around the Division II Minnesota State University dorm the Vikings call home for training camp, he said a comfort level has quickly formed.
