Jonathon Cooper DE Ohio State Scouting Report

Position rank: 15
40-yard dash time: 4.69-seconds
Height: 6-4, Weight: 257 lbs
Denver Broncos Drafted: 2021: ROUND: 7 - Pick Number: 239 (DEN)
Strengths
  • He wins with all-out hustle, second and third effort and will contribute in the NFL.
  • Flashes strength at the point of attack with active, violent hand use. Forceful with his upper body to defeat blocks. Strong hustle player.
  • Has fluid footwork to redirect, reverse momentum and close with a burst. Regularly first off the ball with good snap anticipation.
  • He's not an elite pass rusher and projects as a left end in a 4-3 defense. If he layers on more muscle, he might fit in the 3-4. Size, strength and versatility should push him into the top 75 picks.
  • Aggressive with good awareness to track the ball and attack. Tenacious, tough, competItIve and versatile.
Weaknesses
  • Uncreative pass rusher who lacks counter moves. Raw technique. Streaky and slow to react.
  • Not a natural bender and lacks fluid change-of-direction ability. Plays with inconsistent pad level and is often knocked backward off the snap.
  • Lean lower body - must improve core and leg strength. Suspect body flexibility and tight hips.
  • He doesn't have the elite quickness or flexibility to flatten off the edge against NFL blockers and might have to add bulk to be a 3-4 defense five-technique, or strong-side end in a 4-3.
  • Rarely the first player off the snap, even when lined up over the ball, but his length, effort and short-area quickness still pressures double teams and helps penetrate gaps.
