#7 Cooper Rush 6’3” 228 Rookie, Central Michigan

 

Overview

A product of Central Michigan, Cooper Rush enjoyed a nice college career and was a celebrated player within the MAC conference. He is not a classic dual threat guy but he brings elements of athleticism to the table.

 

Analysis

Rush has an inconsistent, less than ideal delivery but he juxtaposes this with really good passing instincts. He has proven to be a fairly accurate thrower of the football and has just enough arm to push the ball outside the numbers. Has a somewhat similar playing style to Brandon Weeden but is a bit more refined of an overall passer. Rush is a very cerebral quarterback and graduated with a 3.9 GPA in Actuarial Science. He has been able to pick up the Cowboys system at a rapid rate and has translated that classroom to the field thus far in preseason play.

 

2017 Projection

Rush is in the midst of a battle for the backup job to Prescott with Kellen Moore and we expect both signal callers to make the 53 man roster.
