Report: Cooper DeJean won’t test at scouting combine

A potential first-round defensive back will not participate in certain aspects of the scouting combine in Indianapolis.

Per Dane Brugler of, Iowa cornerback Cooper DeJean will not test next week after suffering a leg injury during a practice late in the 2023 season. Brugler adds that DeJean plans to work out for teams closer to the draft in late April.

DeJean recorded seven interceptions — three of which he returned for touchdowns — and 13 total passes defensed in the last two seasons. He also put up 5.0 tackles for loss. He was a two-time, first-team All-Big Ten honoree.

Additionally, DeJean excelled as a returner, taking a punt back 70 yards for a score in 2023.

This year’s scouting combine begins next Tuesday and runs through the weekend.
