Player Overview

Nebraska has had at least one defensive back drafted since 2010 and Cooper could make it six straight drafts next spring. He became a full-time starter last season at strong safety and brought consistency to the position, replacing Daimion Stafford.

Cooper led the Blackshirts in tackles last season (91), adding 5.0 tackles for loss, 2.0 sacks, one interception and one forced fumble.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: He has solid triangle numbers (size/strength/speed) and has shown the range to play near the line of scrimmage or retreat and cover the deep half of the field. Cooper trusts what he sees and showed improved awareness as a full-time starter last season.

WEAKNESSES: Has room to sprinkle in more anticipation to gain an extra step towards the ball.

Entering his final season in Lincoln, one could make the argument that he is one of the top-10 senior prospects at his position and potentially more with a productive 2014 campaign.
