Thoughts on Jonathan Cooper as a O-line draftee?

43 posts in this topic

While this season seems to be all over but the shouting (and enough of that has already started here on the Huddle!), I see that UNC's John Cooper is up for another national Dlineman award. He's a Wilmington product - played at John T. Hoggard High School - and has been pretty stellar for the Heels. What are your thoughts on the likelihood of him being available when our turn comes up in April., and how he might fit into the Panthers' defensive scheme?

he is the 2nd rated OG and a top 50 pick.

Yeah dude Coop is a guard. Would love to have him and certainly fills a need.

OT James Hurst is also going to be a high draft pick.

Heels OL has been one of the best in the country and a big reason why Gio had one of the best seasons ever for a Carolina RB.

He's more of a zone blocking guard in the NFL from what I've heard. Not a huge kid, 6'3" and about 290 if I recall? Fug Hoggard in the ass. New Hanover High for the win.

Has OL shot up to #1 on the team needs list?

Personally: OL #1, Safety #2, WR #3, DT #4

I'm afraid it has.

Building a young talented line would do wonders for Cam.

People hate on Cam because he struggles under center.

Tom Brady would struggle under center here.

    • Is this dude a real life person or an alt of @GOOGLE JIM BOB COOTER that is a living joke exemplifying the white culture thread? 
    • lol no one takes him seriously. He gets a courage award for bringing his hand-me-down  dad-politics into ttb while still asking to himself, "what does ttb mean again?"
    • I'm extremely pumped by this addition. It has to be the biggest addition since the team came back to Charlotte. I was too young to follow the original talented Hornets (Im sad), so I'm not going back that far. People and fans can say what they want about D12, but the man still have a lot left in his tank. And, Im tired of hearing how he doesnt fit in today's game anymore. There are only a handfull of big men today that I can really say, can shoot the ball: Davis, Towns, Embiid, Cousins and Aldridge.  Howard can still dominate! That's all that matters. The only neg I will give Howard is that I do see a lack of desire/effort to play at times. But, I believe MJ can help motivate him back to being a dominant big man again for next two years here.  Dwight Howard averaged a double-double last season: 13.5 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg, and 1.4 apg.  D12 had "53", I said FIFTY-THREE double doubles last season. He had six games where he averaged 20 rebounds or more.  Guess who was the last Bobcats/Hornets era to even come close to that number.....Emeka Okafor in 2004 as a rookie with 47 double doubles (35.6 MPG). Then Big Al had 42 in 2013 (35.0 MPG). Howard did that while averaging 29.7 min per game. If you count out his 2014 season where he only played in 41 games, last season was the LEAST amount of minutes played per game in Howard's career.  Only three guys (Towns, Whiteside and Gobert) averaged more double doubles than Howard in 2016. And only four other guys ( Whiteside, Drummond, DJordan and Gobert) averaged more RPG than Howard last season. Other than Towns, none of those guys mentioned above can really shoot the ball any better than Howard. But, teams still want them on their teams for big contracts.    D12 will be a beast this upcoming season!
