Professional Career

 

National Football League (NFL)

I was fortunate enough to extend my playing career post college as an undrafted free agent with the Cleveland Browns, and was a part of their rookie Mini-camp. While attending the camp, I was named “honorable mention camper” on day 2 of camp.  One writer quoted “Copeland caught everything thrown his way”.

 

 I attended the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine held in Baltimore, MD on 2/11/12. The link below shows highlights from the particular event:

-After performing drills and running routes from the above combine for the scouts, I was selected to attend the NFL's Super Regional Combine held at Ford Field in Detroit, MI. On 3/30-3/31/12, I attended the Super NFL Scouting Combine in front of 60+ representatives from all 32 teams. The link below shows highlights from the particular event:

Arena Football League (AFL)

Despite no luck with NFL teams, I was signed to the practice squad of the Philadelphia Soul for the playoffs of the 2008 Arena Football League season.  After playing seasons in the AF2 and IFL, I was invited onboard with the Tulsa Talons in 2011, where I played the entire season with the team.

  • 1008 Yards

  • 15 Receiving TD's

Arena Football League 2 (AF2)

I attended the mini-camp of the Peoria Pirates in March of the 2009 season. I was released from the team at the end of camp due to insufficient roster space. In May 2009, I was called back to be a part of the Peoria Pirates. From May until mid June, I was just a practice player. In July, myself and many others were released by the team due to coaching staff changes. From my stint with the team, I played in just one game and recorded 3 catches for 34 yards. Once released from the Pirates in July, I was signed by the Tri-Cities Fever weeks later, for the remainder of the season. With the Fever, I tallyed up a total 41 passes for over 400 yards and 7 touchdowns in the last 5 games of the season.

 

Indoor Football League (IFL)

At the end of the 2009 AF2 season with the Fever, I was resigned to the team under new management with the Indoor Football League.  I participated the whole 2010 season with the Tri-Cities Fever where my accomplishments are as follows:

2010 Season

  • 68 Receptions

  • 779 Yards

  • 18 Receiving TD's

  • 3 Rushing TD's

  •  Special Teams
