The Most NFL Ready Player in the 2015 NFL Draft Is:

Amari Cooper, wide receiver, Alabama. Cooper is the complete package and has all the tools needed to be successful at the next level. He is quick and balanced. His release is good and the burst needed to get away from defenders is there. He runs fluid and disciplined routes and gets open when his quarterback is in trouble. He is also an excellent blocker at the line of scrimmage...

2015 NFL Draft: Raiders Select Amari Cooper Fourth Overall

Former Alabama wide receiver Amari Cooper had been the consensus No. 1 overall player at his position heading into the draft. That changed a tad with the emergence of West Virginia’s Kevin White during the draft process. But as has been the case numerous times throughout the history of the draft, our first inclination was right. Cooper was selected fourth overall by the Oakland...

Projecting Success, Pro Comparison of Kevin White

A lot of NFL Draft nerds are singing the praises of Alabama Crimson Tide wideout Amari Cooper, but it can be argued that West Virginia Mountaineer Kevin White deserves just as much respect, if not more. Both players are a lock to be first round picks but as I stated in a previous article, picking which man is better simply depends on what a team looking for a wide receiver wants...

Photo: Amari Cooper’s Name Has Been Added To The First-Team All-American Wall At Alabama

Amari Cooper’s time at Alabama has come to an end, as the wide receiver is headed to the NFL, but the former star will be forever remembered inside the Crimson Tide’s facility.  The 6-foot-1, 210-pound wideout is one of the greatest wide receivers in Alabama history, so it’d be pretty tough to forget him, but that won’t be possible now, anyway. Cooper’s name has been etched...
