Round 5, Pick 37: 49ers select Mississippi OT Fahn Cooper

Apr 30, 2016 at 12:34 PM--


With the 37th pick in the fifth round (174th overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft, the San Francisco 49ers selected Mississippi OT Fahn Cooper. The selection is the team's third offensive lineman of the draft and their second tackle. The 49ers selected Stanford OG Joshua Garnett in the first round and Georgia OT John Theus with their previous selection in the fifth round.

NFL.com projected that Cooper would be selected in rounds 6 or 7 of the NFL Draft.

Analysis


Lance Zierlein of NFL Media had the following to say in his scouting report:

Cooper is one of the tough guys up front for the Rebels, and he has good size and length for the position, but he will be limited to run blocking in tight quarters and his lack of overall athleticism and body control could make him too leaky in pass protection to ever see the field as a starter.

DraftInsider.net had the following to say about Cooper in their scouting report:

Junior-college transfer that's started at both tackle positions the past 2 seasons. Fundamentally sound college tackle who projects to guard at the next level. Quickly sets up off the snap, for the most part bends his knees and blocks with proper pad level. Stays square, fires into blocks and effectively fights with his hands. Anchors in pass protection, keeps his head on a swivel and stays with assignments. Displays good blocking vision and always looking for someone to hit. Cooper offers the size and skill to see duty as an occasional spot starter on Sunday if he medically checks out.

It seems like everyone is trying to find a way to replace Jimmy Garoppolo. While the San Francisco 49ers quarterback has proven to be a difference-maker on the football field with a regular-season record of 24-8 as a starter, he has missed most of the past three seasons due to injuries. There has been a lot of speculation surrounding the possibility of acquiring Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson. A lot. Of course, it's all just traffic-generating chatter at this point as Watson has not requested a trade, and the Texans have not said they would be willing to ship off their star player.
