I you're talking about Pharoh then I don't know of too many people that would agree with you. That dude needs the ball in his hands, a lot.

Don't wanna turn this tread into a discussion all about him though.

I see Cedric as a Vic Beasley type of player. They're builds kinda seem the same.

He is an ideal strong side DE in my opinion.
Deke said more than once towards the end of the year that Dixon was really pushing Sutton for that starting DE spot. There were a couple times this year Dixon got a good pass rush and just missed a sack.

Dixon was arguably the best DE on the team opposite of Clowney at times, especially as the second half of the season progressed.

I'm excited to see what he can do. Seems like Deke really knows how to use him and Dixon really responded well to him.

this is rather disheartening after all the hype around Ced and how he could have been a 4 year starter if we didnt have a bunch of upperclassmen in front of him, Hope it works out though

If Ced is able to get up to around 250, this could end up being a good move. I feel for the guy because he seems like a great person, and his athleticism has never been questioned. Hopefully he can stay healthy and find a way to make an impact at DE.

I don't see Ced having the same wheels Beasley has, not close. I do hope they find a pace for him.

Default Re: Cedrick Cooper to DE

I honestly believe this move will work just fine. I'm not expecting him to be a starter, but I believe he has a better chance at seeing the field at DE than he does LB. Plus, it's not like he is that small.

We're talking about a guy who 6'3 215 here. Mason Harris is like 8 lbs heavier, Devin Washington is like 12 lbs heavier. If he can put on say, 15 lbs and keep up his speed somewhat there is an outside shot he could get a lot of reps next season.

It all depends on his mechanics and work ethic. We'll see how it falls into place this Spring and Fall camp. To early to dismiss this as a failure or success right now obviously.

Bottom line is, our DE group right now is what it is: I don't want to say they're not impressive, but I'm not going to say they are a strength of our roster right now either:

Dixon (44) 6'2 270lb
English 6'6 230
Harris 6'3 220
Turner 6'2 260
D. Washington 6'3 230
M. Washington 6'3 240
Cooper 6'3 215

The good things is he has the whole off-season to get ready. I think if he is going to see the field, it has to be at DE. No way he will be able to make up ground on those LBs

I don't know. Sutton really got it cranked up at the end of the season. His strip of Boyd in the forth quater was critical, key, and very amusing.

Torn acl- bowl practice before we played michigan.
Dislocated elbow- fall practice. In the beginning, I believe.(this injury is what allowed guys to get ahead of him and stay there with the incoming freshmen).
