That comment tells us more about your feelings about Romo than on Cooper.
Just about to post this
He said that was his goal and he pulled it off!
I need to find the thread where I had a long debate where I said that Cooper was a strong player and that he would weigh-in around 310 and not 290.
No, he can't find one in the second. You or me might could do it, but Jerry hasn't been able to do it in years. For some reason the Cowboys can not find decent olinemen.
Actually I am a staunch supporter of Antonio Ramiro Romo.
Cooper is just out of this world good.
have you checked out the bust rate for 1st rd guards?
That has to be the dumbest idea I've heard...
not that hard to do with shorter arms
well he did once; LA was a second rd pick.
But then again that was almost 20 years ago as well.
No team in the NFL since 2007 have spent fewer 1st and 2nd rd picks on the O line as the Dallas Cowboys.
Actually since Jerruh jones bought the boys no other team in the NFL has used fewer high picks on the O line
Last year, one of the best guards in the draft ended up being taken with pick 40.
All Rookie team OG, Sitatulu
It's 7 more than Warford with similar arm length.
At 40, you're talking the difference between the 2nd best OG prospect and the 3rd in the entire draft. That might be a big difference some years, but I think, like anything, the difference ends up being relatively arbitrary once other important factors are brought into bear. Better dedication, better training resources, more coaching time dedicated to the player. All of these things can factor into development as much or more than any perceived initial physical differences.
Happy to see him succeed...thought he was as good as the golden boy DeCastro.
What? Cooper does NOT have short arms. Check the arm length of ALL the guards in the NFL, then get back to me.
