No. 1 Receiver

As most of you know, the Raiders haven’t had a 1,000-yard receiver since Randy Moss in 2005. The reason why is because the Raiders haven’t had a true No. 1 receiver since Moss wore the Silver and Black. But now, the Raiders have Amari Cooper, who’s special and able to get open on anyone trying to cover him.

He’s the whole No. 1 receiver package as he’s a deep threat, can go over the middle and run after the catch. While everyone is going for the tall, physical receivers to get 50/50 balls Cooper is a Tim Brown, Jerry Rice type the gets open for 100/0 balls. All anyone can talk about was the kind of separation Cooper got when he was in minicamp.

Carr’s brother David Carr 120 Sports, “If you are an Amari Cooper fan, go out and buy the jersey because I’m seeing some routes this kid’s running, and it’s unbelievable the separation he’s getting. I understand it’s OTAs and it’s early, but he is so crisp in and out of his cuts… you gotta see this guy on film. He’s an unbelievable player. I can’t wait until August.”

Cooper will be the biggest reason why Carr makes the biggest jump among 2014 drafted quarterbacks.
