2013 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Jonathan Cooper, OG, North Carolina
Cooper has been a four-year starter at left guard for the Tar Heels. Only missed a handful of games in his career. Cooper is a very proficient pass blocker and uses his hands extremely well. Although he only has average height and size, he can hold his own against bigger or stronger tackles. He will likely need to continue adding power to his game as he transitions into the NFL.
He possesses above-average quickness and gets into position immediately. Aforementioned size limits his ability to truly dominate inside, but he plays with a chip on his shoulder and refuses to be pushed around. He smoothly pulls out into open space and shows nice balance moving around the trenches.
At the next level, he'll need to adapt his ability to adjust to more complicated defensive schemes. Cooper will be asked to be more mindful of audibles, stunts, twists, etc. Some teams are looking at him at center, which may negatively effect his stock.
He projects as a mid to late first round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
