NBA Comparison: Lonny Baxter

Strengths: Cooley is a big, physical power forward with a high motor ... A great rebounder, particularly for his height, thanks to his wide frame and aggressiveness on the boards. Averaged 10.3 RPG, good for 12th in the nation, and was even higher in rebounds per 40 minutes (13.9) ... Doesn't shy away from contact; his bruising style makes him a tenacious rebounder and an aggressive post scorer ... An efficient scorer in the post, Cooley shot 58% last season and 60% over the course of his college career ... His physical style made him hard to stop around the basket, but he also has soft touch and an effective jump hook, particularly over his left shoulder ... Sets good, strong screens and is very effective (60% shooting) off of the pick and roll...A good hustle player who will give 100% effort at the next level ... Can score with either hand around the rim...Solid shot blocker (1.2 BPG) ... Good at using his big frame to battle for position deep in the post ... Good leader who served as tri-captain for Notre Dame this season ...

Weaknesses: A bit under-sized, especially for a player with a center's game ... Unathletic and cumbersome ... Limited shooting range, inconsistent from 15+ feet ... Likely too slow to guard NBA power forwards outside of the post, but too small to guard NBA centers ... Questions about endurance due to the fact that he never played more than 30 minutes per game in college ... Showed little improvement from junior to senior year and his shooting percentage and blocks per game decreased significantly ... Has few consistent post moves, as much of his scoring is based on being bigger and stronger than his defender, an advantage he won't always have in the pros ...

Notes: 2012-2013 First Team All-Big East, as well as the Big East's leading rebounder...

Overall: Cooley is a physical, tenacious post player whose hustle, effort, and rebounding ability will get him NBA looks, despite his limited athleticism and variety of post moves...
