Alabama junior WR Amari Cooper "was particularly effective when slid inside to the slot" during Saturday's win against Florida, noted CBS Sports' Rob Rang.
Just something to keep in mind when considering Cooper's projection. Or perhaps he was better off inside to get off Hargreaves III Island. Cooper acquitted himself well in the matchup against stud Gators' CB Vernon Hargreaves III, recording 10 catches for 201 yards and three touchdowns. "The combination of Cooper's acceleration and creative play-design by Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin, however, helped free Cooper for several big plays," Rang wrote. "Cooper was particularly effective when slid inside to the slot, as was the case in the first quarter when he caught the Gators napping to haul in a easy 79-yard reception for his first score." The 6-foot-1, 210-pound Cooper has 43 catches for 655 yards and five touchdowns through four games (45 passes for 736 yards and four touchdowns in 2013). "It is, of course, just September but Cooper looks like a strong bet to give Alabama its first Biletnikoff Award winner in school history," Rang wrote. Sep 22 - 1:23 AM
