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

Draft Scout Riley Cooper News
02/08/16 - WR Riley Cooper was released by the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday after he suffered a severe dropoff in production in 2015. Cooper had just 21 receptions for 327 yards and two touchdowns last season after catching a combined 102 passes over the previous three campaigns.
09/30/15 - WR Riley Cooper did not practice Wednesday because of a knee injury sustained in Sunday's win over the Jets. It isn't anything major, but his status for this week's game is uncertain at this point. Cooper has just three receptions this season and his snap totals have been decreasing.
08/31/15 - WR Riley Cooper didn't have a reception in the preseason. He didn't practice Monday and said he tweaked his groin, but said he is expected to return to practice on Tuesday.
12/21/14 - WR Riley Cooper joined teammates Jeremy Maclin and Jordan Matthews in catching his 50th pass of the year, giving Philadelphia three such receivers for just the second time in franchise history. Jackson, Maclin and Jason Avant did so in 2011.
12/10/14 - WR Riley Cooper has 46 catches, which is just one less than he had all of last season. But his yards per catch average has dropped from 17.8 to 10.2 and his touchdown total has dropped from eight to one.
But if the Eagles are unhappy with the production they're getting from the man they gave a five-year, $25 million contract to last January, they're doing a good job of hiding it.
"He's out there playing and competing, and the last time I checked, he's got just one catch less than less year and has only two drops," offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur said. "We are comfortable with him out there playing, and we don't have a problem. ... like I think some people questioning me do."
