Separation and running after the catch

Running a 4.35 in the 40-yard dash, Cooper has blazing speed and can run right by a defender. Put that together with the fact that he’s just as quick as he is fast and it’s no wonder why no one can stay with him when he runs his routes. And when he’s out in space with the ball in his hands after the catch, the first two defenders, not one, won’t make the tackle.

Carr told 97.5 the Game “He [Cooper] is ridiculous in and out of his breaks,” said Carr. “His style of play is perfect for this league. He’s good at getting on toes and creating separation. He’s good at when the ball is in his hands making those fast-twitch movements to make a guy go one way so he can take it to the house. It’s just little things that honestly people don’t even notice.

Carr’s brother David Carr was able to see Cooper in OTAs and told 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.”
