Hands: White

Both of these kids have great hands that their respective teams relied on for their success on offense. In 2015 Cooper only dropped six of the 130 catchable passes thrown to him for a 4.6 percent drop rate. White ended up dropping eight of his 116 catchable passes for a drop rate of only 6.89 percent.

That puts both of these players right up there with all of the legitimate No. 1 receivers in the NFL. That’s because they both have excellent technique, catching the ball out, away from their bodies. They both pluck the ball out of the air easily without any king of fighting going on in the process too.

But if you hold a gun to my head, I have to give the edge to the taller, longer, higher leaping White. They both have excellent body control to adjust but White’s height, length and leaping ability give him a larger catch radius. Therefore, the quarterback has a larger margin for error when throwing the ball to White.
