The Jacksonville Jaguars Want Logan Cooke To Launch Punts For Them In The Future

Hunter Bradley wasn’t the only special teams player to get picked up in the 2018 NFL Draft from Mississippi State University. Logan Cooke, the former punter for Mississippi State football, will be taking his talents down to Jacksonville, Florida to play for the Jaguars.

Also in the 7th round, with the 247th overall pick, the Jags chose Cooke to join their organization. Cooke, according to HailState.com, is the first punter ever from Mississippi State University to be drafted to an NFL team.

Now, he’ll have an opportunity to punt footballs in the NFL. He was the final former Bulldog player to be drafted in the 2018 NFL Draft. The four MSU players picked were good for a tie for 5th most players from an SEC school to be drafted this year.

And that’s who was drafted out of Mississippi State University in 2018. Four players total. Two on offense and two on special teams. Not bad for a year in which the Bulldogs featured plenty of youth. Of course, over the coming days, expect to hear about Bulldogs getting picked up as undrafted free agents. MSU did have a few seniors graduate and some NFL teams will be interested in them.
