Notes:
A Second-Team All-SEC choice by the AP in 2009...Finished his career at Florida with 81 receptions for 1,496 yards and 18 touchdowns...Broke through as a senior, leading the Gators in receiving yards (961) and touchdowns (nine), while ranking second with 51 catches...Drafted in the 25th round of the 2009 MLB draft by the Texas Rangers...One of the tallest receivers in the draft, Cooper also has prototypical bulk to go with his above average height...Athletic and a great blocker...Makes the hard catches look easy...Solid route runner...Lacks some focus, dropping too many easy passes...Takes too long to reach top-end speed...Not all that elusive.
