North Carolina OG Jonathan Cooper's Stock Keeps Rising

North Carolina OG Jonathan Cooper is starting to pickup more buzz at the NFL combine. Mike Mayock says that he has a big butt (and he cannot lie). Big butts are good for o-lineman though. Mayock also said that there isn’t much of a difference between Cooper and his top prospect in the draft Chance Warmack. They both are outstanding.

Cooper has been impressive in the combines showing off his athleticism. He put up 35 reps in the bench press yesterday and the he just ran a 5.13 40yd, 1.73 10yd. This could be the San Diego Chargers guy at pick 11.

When the San Diego Chargers are on the clock in April, it would be awesome for this kid and a few pther big names to be available. Cooper would be a starter immediately on our team. We have needed help at the left guard position and Cooper would be a nice piece to add to the o-line. He isn’t the left tackle that we all want, but he might be the most talented player available.

    In particular if the chargers trade down to the middle of the first round, I would love this guy as a pick. But when you have a low mobility QB, that doesn’t extend plays with much success, then you have make sure that guy has a OLT he can trust. So come on Chargers open up the wallet for Branden Albert, so they can pick Warmack or Cooper in the first round.

    Troutman and Vasquez are a amazing guard combo, so I say we draft a lt in the first, corner in second, and guard in the 3rd. (If you don’t know who troutman is, he is our 5th round pick in last years draft who was suppose to be a 1st rounder but got hurt training for the combine, he has never allowed a sack in his college career)

      Ive been saying that for the longest. Troutman should be a beast… however its up to the new coaches to see it in him…but any olinemen will do for me…i just hope they dont pass on a tackle because Gaither makes them believe he will play his best ball ever or something
