Report: Iowa DB Cooper DeJean’s leg injury to limit combine participation

Cooper DeJean

Iowa defensive back Cooper DeJean will not participate in testing and position drills at the NFL Scouting Combine next week, The Athletic reported on Thursday.

DeJean continues to recover from a season-ending lower left leg injury suffered in practice on Nov. 15. He is ranked No. 22 overall by Field Level Media entering the 2024 draft. He played cornerback and returned kicks for the Hawkeyes but is viewed by some teams as a safety prospect.

A consensus All-American in 2023, DeJean started the first 10 games of the season for Iowa. He had three career interception returns for touchdowns. He did not allow a touchdown in coverage last season.

DeJean’s individual workout could take place next month if he’s deemed medically ready for testing. When he does run the 40 and conduct other on-field tests, DeJean is expected to show elite explosiveness and acceleration scouts have seen at previous testing days in Iowa City along with his on-field play.

Iowa’s pro day is scheduled for March 20, just over one month before the 2024 draft.

DeJean turned 21 last month and is part of a strong cornerback class with the potential to be used as a hybrid defensive back similar to the role of Ravens safety Kyle Hamilton and Seahawks cornerback Devon Witherspoon.
