Cowboys pick G Cooper Beebe in 3rd round of 2024 NFL Draft. What to know

The Dallas Cowboys selected Kansas State OG Cooper Beebe with the 73rd pick in the 2024 NFL draft. Beebe was a three-time first-team all-conference pick and two-time offensive lineman of the year by the league coaches and a consensus All-American as a senior in 2023. Here’s everything you need to know about Beebe.

Cooper Beebe scouting report

Beebe is a physically dominating blocker originally recruited as a 3-star DT but moved to offensive line as a true freshman in 2019 and appearing in three games. He was a first-team All-Big 12 pick by the coaches at left tackle as a redshirt sophomore in 2021 and conference offensive lineman of the year at left guard each of the past two seasons. He showed his versatility as a senior, starting all 13 games at left guard but also playing 106 snaps at right tackle and 20 at left tackle the first six games.

Beebe is considered an elite interior pass protector and overpowering run blocker. There is some concern about his lack of arm length and athleticism, though his measurables at the NFL Combine were solid.
