Jonathan CooperGuard | North Carolina
You want a stalwart on the offensive line who knows how to make a major impact? Look no further than Jonathan Cooper, who has started 35 games for the Tar Heels over the past three seasons. A second-team All-ACC selection the previous two seasons, Cooper has emerged as one of the top offensive linemen not only in the league but the entire country. Cooper played in 864 plays on the year and had a team-high 47 regular-season knockdown blocks. This season will be an adjustment, as the Tar Heels move to a hurry-up spread, placing a premium on linemen who can keep up. But at 6-foot-3, 295 pounds, Cooper has proved to be an unmovable force, and he should be up for the challenge.
