Dalvin Cook – RB, Vikings (Brandon Stark)

Brandon “Bran” Stark is the fourth child of Eddard and Catelyn Stark. He is the second oldest son. [Spoiler Alert – if you have not seen the show and plan to, this is a Season 1 Spoiler – go to next character]

When Bran was young, he loved to climb. He would climb up the side of buildings, trees and just about anything else he could. Unfortunately, he took a fall. A fall that almost took his life. Instead, it took his legs. He became paralyzed from the waist down. While dealing with his injury, Bran developed a supernatural power and becomes the “Three-Eyed Raven”.

At that point, Bran is basically gone. He is now this creepy, handicapped, supernatural boy who sits in his chair and stares at people intently. He has always been a curious person and this does not change once he becomes the Three-Eyed Raven. He uses his powers to seek out answers. He has the potential to be an extremely important character in Game of Thrones, but will his disability slow him down?

Dalvin Cook comes to mind when I think of Bran. Mainly because Cook has so much potential. He could be the best running back in the NFC North (David Montgomery will hopefully prove that wrong), but his knees keep holding him back. In his rookie season, Cook came out on fire. He was averaging 4.7 yards-per-carry before going down with an ACL injury. He looked decent again in 2018 but then dealt with hamstring injuries all season, limiting his performance.
