Marcus Cooper (born February 1, 1990)[1] is an American football cornerback for the Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League (NFL). He was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the 7th round of the 2013 NFL Draft, with the 252nd overall pick.[2] He played college football for the Rutgers Scarlet Knights.

College Career

Cooper played all four years for the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, but saw limited playing time as a starter during his first two seasons as a Wide Receiver. He switched to Cornerback in his final year at Rutgers and his playing time increased immensely along with his production, leading many draft experts to speculate that he would be a mid-late NFL draft pick.

Professional Career

San Francisco 49ers

On April 27, Cooper was drafted in seventh round of the 2013 NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers with the 252nd overall selection. On May 10, 2013 it was announced that Cooper had signed a four-year contract with the 49ers. Cooper was then cut by the 49ers in their final roster cuts before the beginning of the 2013 regular season.[3]

Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs claimed Cooper off waivers right after the deadline to reach 53 players in 2013 and added him to their active roster.[4]. Upon a minor injury to CB Brandon Flowers, Cooper played extensively against the NY Giants on 9/29/13 and played exceptionally, recovering a fumble in the endzone for a Chiefs' touchdown in the first quarter.
