Scouting Report
Pass rush specialist who overwhelms blockers with his speed, but is also getting better with his all around skill set. Difficult to handle one-on-one.

Immediate Projection
The good news for Cooper is that he has enrolled early and can begin adding to his frame. At 230-odd pounds, there might not be much of a role for him in 2016. Urban Meyer expects him to play, however.
