I normally wouldn't draft 2 TEs in a situation where my first one is a very good one. However its an 8 man league, so the FA pool for WR/RB was about the same as what I could have drafted at that point, so I decided to go for an upside TE in case he hits bigs and/or Davis gets hurt.
In a draft where you have the chance to start 4 rb's , you sir, hit the jackpot. That strength means you had to take a loss somewhere else on your roster and that looks like wr#3 to me.(Be it Garcon or Williams - they're good not great players.) I like blackmon after his 4 game suspension and i'm ok with gordon whom a lot of people are talking up right now.)

I understand your line of thinking for te#2 (cook) though I myself would use the spot for another wr with potential. To me this is the baggage on your roster. I would almost argue you carry kapernick OR wilson but not both after the first couple of games. You might be able to trade 1 of those qb's plus maybe Williams for a top teir wr. Just something to think about.

All in all good job. The martin, mccoy, wilson, jones-drew combo is freaking sick. If kap does his part (say 3600 yards passing -21tds-15 ints- 400 yards rushing ) you should be in great shape. The kap/v davis double dip isn't exactly brady-welker but it shouldn't hurt. Again, keep your eyes open for wr's in free agency. Overall, i'd be thrilled with your roster.
