The Denver Broncos have selected Ohio State linebacker Jonathon Cooper with their 239th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Cooper doesn’t have elite size and speed for the NFL, but he makes up for it with intelligence. As an edge rusher in college, he had a solid first step and could bend off the edge to beat opponents to the quarterback. He looks like a good special teams addition with potential to work on his craft to play outside linebacker under Vic Fangio.
