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
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."
11/24/14 - WR Riley Cooper's snaps have decreased in recent weeks. He suggested - jokingly, he later said - that it had to do with fellow wide receiver Jeremy Maclin's negotiations for a new contract.
Maclin signed a one-year, $5 million contract during the offseason after tearing his ACL last year and missing the entire season. He is having a career season that includes nine touchdowns. Maclin didn't appreciate Cooper's comment, even if it was said in jest.
"That wasn't a smart thing to say," Maclin said.
09/03/14 - WR Riley Cooper was a full practice participant Wednesday. He was on the injury report with an ankle injury. He was sidelined early in training camp for more than two weeks with an ankle injury.
08/17/14 - WR Riley Cooper was a full participant in practice Sunday for the first time in more than two weeks. Cooper, who had a foot injury, didn't play in either of the Eagles' first two preseason games. He is expected to play this week against Pittsburgh.
