Draft Scout Snapshot: A closer look at the Cardinals' picks: Round 1/7 - Jonathan Cooper, 6-2, 311, G, North Carolina...The Cardinals ranked him as the top guard in the draft. They love his athleticism, comparing him to former Steelers great Alan Faneca. Cooper is athletic enough not only to pull but also to hit someone when he does. He can change directions to block defenders. He's smart and he started 47 games in four seasons. The Cardinals haven't decided which side he will play. - The Sports Xchange
