Quade Cooper has once again added to his jaw-dropping NFL highlight reel with another behind the back pass, which stunned fellow teammates.

A clip of Cooper, following a new diet which he claims has him in perfect shape, went bonkers in the US back in March after a behind the back pass found friend Pangai Jr. on the chest in unbelievable fashion.

He followed this up with another trick pass after his new-found fame in April.

But the former Wallaby star is at it again, embarrassing a defender during a simulation drill.

The drill started as Cooper shaped to pass to the receiver in traditional fashion, before baulking and sending the defender on a different path.

But the receiver stepped back and Cooper hit his trademark bullet-like behind the back pass to reach him in the open.

The move had the defender calling foul, but others on social media once again praised his ingenuity.

The pass received plaudits from former NRL and Union star Karmichael Hunt, who gave him a perfect 100 score.

New Zealand prop Ofa Tu’ungafasi and Aussie second-rower Izaack Rodda also gave him praise for the move.

Former Wallaby winger Digby Ioane also praised Cooper’s physique: “Body the best I’ve seen in years ... Looking ripped champion.”

Cooper praises new diet for physique

Cooper has been showcasing a range of trick passes that have stunned fans in the US.

But the 70-Test veteran has also explained the secret behind his extraordinary physique.

Cooper says converting to the carnivore diet has been a "game-changer" for him and judging by the photographic evidence it's hard to argue.

The 32-year-old has joined fellow footy stars Sonny Bill Williams and Tevita Pangai Jnr in essentially cutting out vegetables, fruit and carbohydrates, to focus on a bulk diet of meat and seafood.

Cooper says where his old vegetable-heavy diet left him lean but more injury-prone, the new regime has left him feeling fitter and stronger.
