George Cohen was a right-back or centre-half who spent his entire career at Fulham, playing 459 matches and scoring 6 goals from 1956 to 1969. He gained 37 caps for England.
Considered the best full-back ever faced by George Best and England's greatest right-back by Alf Ramsey, Cohen was a reliable defender who wasn't only good in defence but also when he had to support the attack, for example with England when players like Martin Peters and Alan Ball were busy in central positions or chasing high up the flank. He was a model of consistency and an ever present for many seasons: he missed only three league games between 1958 and 1962, six between 1963 and 1966. He was trusted by Ramsey for his strength, speed and stamina which were very useful for an overlapping full-back, even though he sometimes lacked of accuracy in crosses.

Era should be 1963-1966. I believe he got 1964-1967 because he played for England in those years but he capped only a few times in 1967 and he was way more present in the three seasons previous to the 1966-67 one.
He definitely played also as centre-half alongside Langley or Nichols at Fulham and Newton with England. Therefore he needs CB as secondary position and DEF needs a boost since he wasn't that bad at pure defending. I'd go for 80. On the other hand he didn't seem too effective against dribblers. AGI is fine on 77 but I wouldn't mind it on 75-76.
His passes surely were really fast but many times awfully accurate. While SPS and LPS may respectively be on 79 and 80, SPA and LPA should be lower, like 74-75. CUR can go down a few points as well.
I'm not sure about WFA on 6. I saw a two horrible shots and a few not really good long passes with the left foot.
Instead of Darting Run I'd give him Offensive Fullback.
He retired when he was only 30 years old and the 1966 was definitely his peak. I would set his growth type on Early/Peak.

Add this picture if you want.
