3. Amari Cooper, WR (Alabama)
Amari Cooper is the most polished and NFL ready receiver in the 2015 NFL Draft. He is a great route runner, with a high football IQ and off the charts talent.
Cooper is a low-risk pick because he can be a number 1 receiver as a rookie. He compares well to Odell Beckham Jr. and Giants fans know what that means. Like Beckham Jr. did in 2014 as a rookie, Cooper is going to put up huge numbers in 2015.
Cooper was the model of consistency with the Alabama Crimson Tide. In each of his three seasons as the SEC’s best receiver, he averaged over 16 yards per reception. In 2014 he had 124 receptions and 16 touchdowns.
Because he can replicate this kind of success in the NFL, Cooper is a very sensible top ten pick.
