2024 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Cooper Beebe (OG – Kansas State)

2024 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Cooper Beebe (OG – Kansas State)

With being more than halfway through the College Football season, FantasyPros will be taking a look at early NFL Draft scouting reports before the Combine in March. Here’s a look at Cooper Beebe.

2024 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Cooper Beebe

Cooper Beebe (OG – Kansas State)

6’4″ – 335 lbs.

Background:

Beebe took 24 snaps in 2019 before starting six games at right tackle and two at left guard in 2020 (three sacks allowed,) before manning the left tackle position in 2021 (13 starts, zero sacks allowed). Slid inside to left guard in 2022 (14 starts, no sacks), and has been primarily playing left guard again this year after spending the first two games at right tackle.

Positives:

Highly experienced four-year starter with numerous starts at three different spots on the line, and even moved around to multiple spots mid-game during some of the contests reviewed. His frame is very well-suited to the interior, with excellent bulk. Tough, intelligent player who gives excellent effort on a snap-to-snap basis. Shows a good understanding of positioning. Very powerful phone-booth blocker who can overpower defenders in a congested area.

Shows nice grip strength to stay connected through the snap. Blows up anyone he contacts as the pull guard. Takes advantage of chances to finish snaps with pancakes. He’s technically a sound player who pass-protects with a wide base, adequate knee-bend, and a little bit more flexibility than anticipated. Anchors well at the line of scrimmage, with solid extension. Has accurate hand placement with his punch, and resets well. Shows good awareness to recognize delayed rushers. Actively seeks out teammates to help and can knock opponents off-balance with powerful shoves.

Negatives:

Probably a bit shorter and thicker than teams prefer at the tackle spot. Ends up on the ground more often than you’d think because of balance issues which seemingly crop up as a result of aggression. Occasionally lapses into leaning, which can cause him to fall off of the occasional block. Gives very good effort when asked to play in space, but his range is limited by average athleticism. Pad level and leg drive could be more consistent after engaging; gets the job done, but doesn’t always generate a ton of push.

Summary:

Has spent the past four seasons as a grizzled, reliable jack-of-all-trades for the Wildcats, but will likely end up playing guard in the pros, where his physical/athletic profile is much better suited. May not have quite as many “wow” plays as some of the toolsier blockers in the class, but his combination of intelligence, technique, consistency, and lower-body strength should allow him to develop into a gap-scheme starter. A relatively high-profile line prospect who stands a solid chance of coming off the board on the second day.

Projection: Round 3
