NCAA Football: Orange Bowl-Michigan vs Florida State Logan Bowles-USA TODAY Sports

Florida State RB Dalvin Cook has the chance to become the first FSU running back to be selected in the first round since 1997. Here are where some analysts from around the web predict Cook will land.

Dan Kadar, SB Nation:

Round 1 Pick 29: Green Bay Packers

A team like the Packers could stop the slide of Cook on draft night. He could be Green Bay’s new lead running back while also providing another weapon in the pass game. The Packers could be another team in the back part of the first round who gets a cornerback, as well.

Round 1 Pick 19: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Mike Mayock, NFL Network:

Round 1 Pick 27: Kansas City Chiefs

Cook is a big play waiting to happen. His tape is outstanding.

Matt Miller, Bleacher Report:

No. 43 on Big Board

Florida State RB Dalvin Cook: Cook's off-field issues are hurting his stock, and so are injury issues to his hamstring and shoulder. (Round 2)

Rob Rang, Will Brinson, CBS Sports:

Round 1 Pick 19: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Nate Davis, USA Today:

Round 1 Pick 29: Green Bay Packers

He's got some red flags off the field and in the training room but also owns a multi-dimensional, every-down skill set that would diversify the Pack attack and alleviate the load on Aaron Rodgers' right arm.

Ben Volin, Boston Globe:

Round 1 Pick 19: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Even if the Bucs do keep Doug Martin after an injury-plagued 2016, they still need another back to supplement Charles Sims and Jacquizz Rodgers. Cook, a dynamic rushing/receiving threat, would be a fan favorite in Tampa Bay, where he’d be reunited with fellow Seminole Jameis Winston.
