BIll Polian on Jonathan Cooper

"Jonathan Cooper is an outstanding football player. He’s about as athletic a guard as we’ve seen come into this league in years. He can do everything you want him to do. He can pass protect. He can anchor. He can drive block. He can pull. He can counter pull. He’s got everything you want athletically and from a football temperament standpoint, and once more, I think in time he will move over to center and become the leader of your offensive line, because he has that kind of football IQ and temperament. This was a home run pick for the Arizona Cardinals."
