NFL media analyst Daniel Jeremiah believes Alabama junior WR Amari Cooper is better than Sammy Watkins.
"I had Amari Cooper ahead of Sammy Watkins and Marquise Lee (last year). The way (Cooper) played last year, being a little bit nicked up, that probably raised eyebrows, having him over Sammy Watkins," Jeremiah said. "But what I've seen from him now, I do, I think he's a better football player just all-around, just polished in everything, as a route runner, I think he's a little bit ahead of Sammy." Buffalo's Watkins, of course, was the No. 4 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. Cooper is No. 1 in the NCAA in both receptions (43) and receiving yards (655). "He looks like a No. 1 receiver should look," Bucky Brooks said. "He can run all the intermediate routes, he can get vertical, he can catch and run, he's physical, he's a willing blocker. He's playing in a pro-style offense so it shouldn't really be a big transition for him to go to the National Football League."
