Scouting Report
Having been selected in the 2006 Major League Baseball draft, Cooper chose to attend Florida instead, and appears intent on a career in the NFL. After amassing 30 catches for 535 yards and nine touchdowns over his first three seasons, Cooper emerged in 2009 as a favorite target of Tim Tebow by leading Florida with 961 yards and nine scores while finishing second with 51 catches. That garnered him second-team All-SEC honors by The Associated Press. In a 51-24 win over Cincinnati in the Sugar Bowl in January, Cooper set career bests with seven catches for 181 yards, including an 80-yard touchdown. Cooper was one of 10 Gators to take part in the NFL Combine, but didn't distinguish himself there with a top finish in any category. Still, he has the size and athletic ability to play in the NFL. His blocking skills need work, but Cooper appears to have the tools needed to improve and could be a steal for a team in the fourth or fifth round.
