Overview

Cooper enjoyed an extremely productive senior year as he caught 51 passes for 961 yards in Florida’s spread offense. He is a bit of a strider that builds to speed and can struggle when he needs to sink his hips to come out of his breaks with a big burst to separate from defenders. He can struggle on his release against a good press corner and will need some work on running more precise routes. He has baseball for an option but has stated that he wants to play football first and baseball as a backup.

Analysis

Strengths

Cooper possesses ideal height and bulk to play on the outside at the next level. Is a high-character, two-sport collegiate athlete. Plays with a high level of intelligence. Athletic receiver for his size. Shows the willingness to catch the ball over the middle in traffic.

Weaknesses

Cooper’s a guy who builds speed and is not explosive off the line. Must improve his ability to gain separation as a route runner. Long-term football future could be cloudy as he has other options (baseball). Blocking could be better but Cooper does have the build and frame to make strides here.
