Defensive assistant/secondary coach Al Harris talked about rookie defensive back Marcus Cooper, and what an outstanding young player he is. When asked about Cooper’s ability to put a big play behind him, Harris had this to say:

“Oh yes, he forgets about it. [He’s] a good kid. Like I said, he listens, he listens to what you tell him to do. He’ll call up, ‘Hey, they’re giving me this, how should I do this?’ He listens and he’s a student of the game.”

After “whiffing” on so many late round draft picks, the fact that general manager John Dorsey managed to sneak young Mr. Cooper away from the San Francisco 49ers is a testament to his scouting ability and how he’ll perform as a personnel man for the Chiefs. As for Cooper, the coach’s words speak for themselves.

    Dorsey has a hell of an eye for talent, Coop is proof of that. My brother is a life long 9er fan, I text him the other day and thanked him for Coop, he said no problem, he called John and told him we needed him more than they did–lol

    Wasn’t Braden Wilson in the 6th the only whiff this year? The rest are on the roster. Kush, Catapano, Cummings.
