5. Brandin Cooks, DAL

After being traded from the Houston Texans to the Cowboys this offseason, Cooks comes into the NFC East as the fifth-best receiver in the division.

This fifth spot ultimately came down to Cooks, Commanders second-year wideout Jahan Dotson and Michael Gallup. But going with the new Cowboys' wide receiver made the most sense, given his consistency over the past nine seasons.

Cooks will enter his 10th NFL season with 630 career catches for 8,616 yards and 49 touchdowns. The 29-year-old veteran has six 1,000-yard seasons in his career with four different teams (New Orleans Saints, New England Patriots, Los Angeles Rams, and the Texans).

Whatever team Cooks plays for, he delivers on the football field. The former 2014 first-round pick has at least one 1,000-yard season with every team he has played with over his career. In a high-powered offense in Dallas, that shouldn't change.

Cooks is a speedy veteran who consistently produces at the wide receiver position.
