Draft Analysis:

Chip Kelly likes to run the ball and Cooper has some "mauler" to him. He was a reliable replacement at LT in games Tunsil missed but he may struggle to mirror NFL edge speed. --Mark Dulgerian

Overview

Cooper fell below the radar as a high school recruit from Illinois, so he took a scholarship at Bowling Green. He started at left tackle as a redshirt freshman, but wanted to play for a major program so he transferred to the College of DuPage to catch the eyes of recruiters, rather than sitting out a year as a transfer. Ole Miss gladly welcomed him as a starter in 2014 (11 at right tackle, two at left tackle) and he continued to excel with the Rebels as a senior, starting for the suspended Laremy Tunsil the first seven games of the year before moving back to the right side.

Analysis

Strengths

Shows toughness in his approach and won’t back down from a physical challenge. Has the length to land an early punch on pass rushers and the big paws to snatch and ride a second level linebacker if he gets into them squarely. Good thickness in his lower half. Head coach Hugh Freeze praises him for leadership on and off the field. Started every game over his two years at Ole Miss and has played both tackle spots.

Weaknesses

More of an "in the way" player in space than functional blocker. Base may be too wide in pass sets causing some of his balance issues. A little labored in his pass sets and possesses below average athletic traits. Sluggish in his change of direction. Weight drifts a little behind his feet allowing pass rushers to get strong initial push on him on some reps. Unable to be effective space player.

Draft Projection

Rounds 6 or 7

Bottom Line

Cooper is one of the tough guys up front for the Rebels, and he has good size and length for the position, but he will be limited to run blocking in tight quarters and his lack of overall athleticism and body control could make him too leaky in pass protection to ever see the field as a starter.
