If he is there in round 3, sure.


Coop is going in the first round and there is a high probability Hurst will be a first rounder as well.

Panthers prob gonna have a top 3 pick but I'd go OT over OG with a premium selection like that

No way you waste a top 15 pick on an OG. OT is a different story. You can get by with mediocre OG play. That's how guy like Jeremy Bridges last so long.

We just drafted a LG in Amini who probably just had his best game and was going against McCoy. I feel as though LT should be priority #1, swinging Gross over to RT to finish his career should fix this line. Gross had his best years at RT anyway.

Yep. I say RG via free agency and LT in the draft.

Yeah I agree - Cooper easily could be the first OG off the board but I don't think I'd invest our top 3 pick in him.

Chance warmack from Bama will go top ten this year as an OG.

McShay said he's the closest thing to Hutchinson he's seen.

lol Coop is going to go in the top half of the first round. He entered the season #2 at OG and I've seen some places say he has passed Chance Warmack of Bama as the #1 OG.

For example: http://www.nationalf...-Prospects.html

1. Jonathan Cooper, North Carolina, 6-3, 310. He has had an outstanding fall and has risen up boards. He started out the season behind Chance Warmack, but now it looks like he’ll be the first guard taken. NFL teams love this kid because of his athleticism and ability to make blocks on the second level. He is rare in that regard. “It’s been years since I’ve seen one who can do the things in space against DBs and linebackers that he can,” one front office man said. Another called him a “freak athlete,” and lauded him for his explosiveness, intelligence and toughness.


http://sportsillustr...k-12/index.html

Jonathan Cooper, G -- North Carolina: Cooper received first round grades from scouts prior to the season and has surpassed expectations on the field this year. He was stamped as the premiere zone-blocking lineman in the nation and Cooper has expanded his game in 2012. The athletic guard improved his power at the point of attack and now displays the ability to beat down defenders on the line of scrimmage as well as annihilating opponents blocking in motion. Cooper will be the second guard selected in April 's draft after Alabama's Chance Warmack. He is unlikely to make it out of the draft's initial 15 choices.


Now, I don't think we use a top 3 pick on an OG. If we can trade down to the middle of the first round, sure, but not a top 3 pick.

The fact that he is an excellent prospect but is a TARHEEL is enough for the haters
