Very good. I had questions about his strength, but he's doing all the right things at the combine to alleviate those worries. He'll be an excellent RG in the NFL because he can handle those 3 techniques. He's on my short-list.

Really talented player. I think he has the ability to play all 3 interior positions. I wouldn't mind him at 14 at all.

This has to catch our eyes. Moving RG to C and then LG. Sounds like a big plus. If I am not mistaken Geofff Hang is a FA? To lazy to check.

He lifted well at the combine, but strength and power arent really his game. He's built for a pure ZBS

What do you mean by ZBS? He's raw, but raw is good right? I hope NFL conditioning would help as well.

Zone blocking scheme, he's athletic and moves well laterally. It'll be harder for him to move NFL DTs running straight at them. Travis bond(unc's other guard) is pure power and could be a steal in the later rounds

oh yeah bond is very underrated.

but all in all cooper is a great guy...i feel like this oline and dline class is off the charts so i would not rush a pick....unless its a sure fire LT or star falls to 14.

This seems like a good draft for lineman, we could stand to grab at least three

Cooper is a very good player, but I'm not sure he fits for us. He projects as a LG because of his more technical, finesse skillset, and we already have Silatolu there. Of course I don't see why Silatolu couldn't necessarily move to RG, but this fact could come into play with whether we would take him. I also think that we may be a little high for him, as even though he's in top fifteen, top twenty talk now, generally that hype doesn't necessarily amount to anything come draft day for guards.
