Concerns

With a prospect like Amari Cooper, it is hard to find things not to like. The biggest concern with Cooper is that he is what he is at this point. He has reached what he will be, which is very solid receiver that will play in the NFL at a high level for a long time to come.

Kyle’s Instant Evaluation

For me Amari Cooper is the best receiver in this class. He is a tactician as a wide receiver that does anything needed. He is so smooth when he running his routes that his explosiveness can be lost. He will be a monster at the next level, making plays for whichever team selects him.
