Unofficial 4.62/4.66 40 times for WR Cooper Kupp. Slower times than I expected after watching Kupp during Senior Bowl practices. He played at a much faster speed on the field and had a very productive week running routes in Mobile. Kupp showed the ability to separate at the break and finish plays. However, WR is a "stopwatch position" at the Combine. And the 40 time does factor into the evaluation process.

Senior Bowl: WR Cooper Kupp (Eastern Washington) has been one of the most productive receivers this week during practice. Kupp has solid top-end speed and route running ability. Very consistent catching the football in both 7-on-7 and team period. Has a really good feel for finding open windows in zone coverage.
