The first ACC player is now off the board, as North Carolina offensive guard Jonathan Cooper is selected by the Arizona Cardinals. Arizona needed a ton of offensive line help, and Cooper certainly fits that bill. Cooper was a late riser, but with the run on offensive linemen in this top 10, you can’t argue with this pick at all. Smart move by the Cards.
