Offensive Lineman Fahn Cooper
San Francisco drafted rookie offensive lineman Fahn Cooper in Round 5 of the 2016 NFL Draft.
A number of draft experts, including our own here at Niner Noise, pegged Cooper as a better prospect than fellow Niners draftee lineman John Theus.
But Theus made the 53-man roster. Cooper is headed to the practice squad.
Cooper played at both tackle and guard during training camp and the preseason. So at least he offers some depth and flexibility in the Niners’ developmental program.
Oh, and Cooper’s solid backing up of standout tackle Laremy Tunsil at Ole Miss certainly bodes well for the former’s future.
