I know we have much greater needs, but a guy like Cooper, who could be a top 10 player regardless of position in this draft, should be taken if he magically falls to 31. I really believe defense should be the foremost priority of this draft, especially the DLine (me and everyone else), but we also need to recognize that Kaep is the most important player on the team this year and for the next ten years, and protecting him now and in the future should take second place to nothing. Another elite line prospect would be a step in that direction. Plus he would contribute added push to an already great ground game.
You build through the trenches, offensively and defensively. If Cooper is available at 31 I'd be willing to bet my left pinky toe he's the best player available and definitely the best available player along either of the lines. Take him.
