    Johnathan Cooper's "knockdown blocks"

    Stumbled across something this morning that sounds cool but that I have no perspective on.

    Was skimming the profile of Tarheel guard Johnathan Cooper on nfldraftscout.com, and I spotted a note stating that he "had double digits in knockdown blocks in nine of 12 games this season." How out-of-the-ordinary is it to pancake somebody 10+ times in almost every game?

    Like I said, don't have much frame of reference for that stat, but it at least SOUNDS pretty badass (for a OG who is supposedly a bit undersized and might be had in the second round).

    I'd be pretty shocked to see Cooper fall to the 2nd, but I guess stranger things have happened.
    ---------------

    Top 10 , no order - Winston, Gurley, Cooper, White, Scherff, Beasley, Dupree, Gregory, Williams, and Davis.

    Perfect zbs guard. More like a judo black belt than a lineman. Great use of the opponents momentum against him.

    Think he's more of a fit than Chance Warmack, personally. Though I don't think either is likely at #12.

    I'd certainly consider him in the 2nd.

    Slot him in at LG, move Incog to the Right and slide Jerry out to RT... and if we're able to get another similar type mover for RG then drop Incog. That is, if they think Martin's the solution at LT - which I'm not sold on just yet. I'd rather work Long into the picture for another year or 2.
