In 2023, Cooper led the SEC in tackles for loss with 17 while finishing 5th in the SEC in sacks with 5. Cooper led all draft eligible LBs in 2023 with 10 sacks and a 90.8 PFF overall defensive grade. Coopers 85.5 PFF coverage grade is 7th amongst all draft eligible LBs. Super freak athlete, run and chase/sideline to sideline LB. Good pass rush/QB spy instincts. Good eyes, diagnoses and fills quickly. Fluid in coverage, good hips and change of direction ability, can stick and run with Tight Ends/Running Backs underneath and down the seam.


Can get overwhelmed at the point of contact by bigger/powerful OL. Would like to see Cooper put on some size/strength to take on ball carriers and OL at the next level. Quick to diagnose, quick trigger but sometimes his urgency/burst gets the better of him and he overruns the play. Will need to clean up his pursuit and work on coming to balance and fitting up the ball carrier. Loses his balance at times in the open field, sloppy footwork in pursuit. Though Cooper has the speed/agility to do well in man coverage, he lacks coverage awareness in his zone drops.


Cooper was the alpha on a defense that only allowed 1,414 total rushing yards this past season, the 13th fewest amongst all D1 schools. Cooper is an elite athlete and is another player who will absolutely light it up at the NFL combine. Expect the buzz surrounding Edgerrin Cooper to start as soon as he gets his measurements recorded in Indy (6’2”, estimated 33”+ arm length) and continue to get louder and louder as he goes through his on field workouts. Cooper’s versatility will make him an intriguing option for a coach like Dan Quinn that is willing to get creative with his defensive playmakers.
