NFL Combine Preview: Riley Cooper

WR Riley Cooper (Scheduled to workout with Group 4 or 5 on Sunday, February 28)

Size and Statistics: 6-foot-3, 215 pounds. 81 catches, 1496 yards, 18 touchdowns in four seasons. 2009 Second Team AP All-American.

In 140 characters or less: Fast WR who needs to work on route running but can block like an offensive tackle.

Strengths: Too tall for DBs and can smash them at the line. Cooper is one of the fastest guys to play at Florida and has vastly improved as a receiver. The best blocker on the team not named Pouncey. A great athlete, he turned down the Texas Rangers to try to play in the NFL. Great hands, too.


Weaknesses: His senior season was the only one in which he was a featured player. Cooper's route running has gotten better, but he will round off a route to get to the spot quicker. He can also lose focus.

Character: A very hard worker, but a diva like all receivers. He has never been a problem at Florida. However, in his senior year of high school, he smashed a car window (with his bare hand) of a guy he was trying to fight.

Where will he go: Very late, like 4th or 5th round. Would be fun to see him in Minnesota.
