Ever since being drafted No. 4 overall to the Oakland Raiders, all we’ve heard coming out of team facilities is amazing reports about Amari Cooper.
In case you were maybe on the fence about whether or not this kid can be a star, we present this Vine, courtesy of Football is Life.
Are you serious?
The footwork displayed by Cooper is elite-level stuff you’d expect from one of the league’s superstars, but to see a rookie putting on this kind of show is just crazy.
In the best possible way.
No wonder Jerry Rice recently compared Cooper to legendary Raiders receiver Tim Brown. Honestly, the defender had no chance to stick with Cooper in the featured clip above. And this is just the video proof of something we’ve heard all offseason long about this star rookie.
Oakland has the potential to really shock some people this year offensively. Along with Cooper, Michael Crabtree has been standing out as an outstanding player for the Raiders so far in training camp.
For what it’s worth, Cooper looks like a lock for the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2o15.
