Bio: 
Two-year starter who made 29 tackles (5.5 for loss) with 2.5 sacks and two forced fumbles as a senior. Posted 23 tackles (six for loss) and 2.5 sacks in 2016. Tallied 22 tackles (6.5 for loss), five sacks and two forced fumbles as a sophomore.
Pos: 
Tall, resilient lineman with limited upside potential. Plays with proper pad level, works his hands throughout the action and penetrates the line of scrimmage to make plays in the backfield. Displays first-step quickness, flashes ability off the edge and works hard. Easily changes direction and shows a burst to the ball.
Neg: 
Looks and plays like a limited athlete. Possesses average quickness. Struggles getting off blocks.
Analysis: 
Cooper was a solid lineman at the college level but lacks size and upside and has next-level limitations.
