8. Amari Cooper, WR (Alabama)

The production that Cooper has put up with the Alabama Crimson Tide is truly historic. In 2012 as a freshman he had 59 receptions, 1,000 yards receiving and 11 touchdowns. In 2013 he caught 45 passes for 736 yards and 4 touchdowns. Unbelievably in 2014, he caught 124 receptions for 1,727 yards and 16 touchdowns.

Cooper looks to me like a copy of Odell Beckham Jr. the Giants rookie of the year in 2014. That is the kind of receiver that Cooper is. He has great athletic ability, is a great route runner and can make the “Wow how did he do that” catches with the best of them.

Cooper is 6-1 and 210 pounds. The greatest strength to his game is his ability to get yards after the catch. In the open field, Cooper is a natural runner who is hard to catch.

The Giants are pretty well stocked at the wide receiver position. Though if the Giants are doubting the recovery of Victor Cruz, Cooper would be a home run draft pick.
