Cooper DeJean's Player Profile

Nick Baumgardner - The Athletic - August 24th: "Phil Parker and Kirk Ferentz turned him into a slot corner with safety skills, though, and the results have been great. Hes tough enough to fit the run in the box and fast enough to run with most receiving threats. Hes more of a zone corner than a press corner, but hes definitely a versatile piece at age 20."

Matt Miller - ESPN - August 24th: "Versatility is the name of the game on defense these days, and DeJean can do it all. He has lined up at linebacker, cornerback and safety for the Hawkeyes while showing football instincts and playmaking ability. The 6-1, 207-pounder had five interceptions, 67 tackles and six pass breakups last season while becoming a leader in the very talented Iowa secondary."

Charlie Campbell - Walter Football - August 20th: "He is a gritty and instinctive defender. While he has played cornerback for Iowa, some team sources who have already done tape study on DeJean say they believe he would be a better fit playing inside as a hybrid safety and nickel corner in the NFL."

Ian Cummings - Pro Football Network - July 25th: "DeJean who logged five picks (including three pick-sixes) and eight PBUs in 2022 has eye-catching twitch and movement freedom at 61?, 209 pounds. Hes predictably very strong in run support but also serves as a high-IQ cover man who can jump routes and swing momentum."
