Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Eagles' draft picks: Round 5/159 -- Riley Cooper, WR, 6-4, 222, Florida: Cooper is an intriguing size-speed receiver who should compete for a backup WR spot. The only wideout the Eagles have on their roster anywhere near as big as Cooper is Hank Baskett, and Cooper is much faster than Baskett. - by The Sports Xchange
