Bio: 
Two-year starter who earned First Team All-Conference USA honors and made 68 tackles (2.5 for loss) with three interceptions and two pass breakups in 2017. Recorded 73 tackles (6.5 for loss), 1.5 sacks and seven PBUs as a junior. Combined to make 37 tackles and break up three passes during his first two season at Florida Atlantic.
Pos: 
Explosive safety with nice size. Keeps the action in front of him, effectively reads and diagnoses plays and picks up coverage assignments. Hard-hitting, aggressive defending run plays and screen passes and wraps up tackling. Brings ball carriers down at the point of attack. Does not bite on ball fakes and stays with assignments. Shows good hands for the interception.
Neg: 
Inefficient and does not consistently take proper angles. Late to react in coverage. Average closing burst.
Analysis: 
Cooper has next-level size and showed an NFL game during Shrine Game practices. He must learn to do the little things well but offers possibilities as a traditional strong safety.
