Alabama WR Amari Cooper "reminds me of a young Tim Brown coming out of Notre Dame," says ESPN NFL Insider Jon Gruden.
"He will line up to the left, he will line up to the right, he will go in motion, and he will be in the slot," said Gruden. "He runs a large inventory of routes. If the coverage rotates, he knows how to adjust the pattern. He can get in and out of his breaks. He has savvy and he is elusive after the catch." Cooper visited 10 teams in the top 12, including the Buccaneers, Titans, Jaguars, Redskins, Jets, Bears, Falcons, Giants, Rams and Browns. Noticeably absent on that list is Oakland, though we mock Cooper to the Raiders (as do many). "He's got good length, good height, good vertical, and the way he competes when the ball is in the air separates him," Gruden said.
