OAK: Amari Cooper Quick Recap

With the most Raider pick possible, the Oakland Raiders gave new head coach Jack Del Rio and second year quarterback Derek Carr a sexy new weapon with the selection of receiver Amari Cooper. 

As much as skill was needed on the outside, I would have loved to see the Raiders address their needs on both lines before grabbing a receiver. While there is no denying Cooper’s abilities, it just seems like there are much greater needs for this Oakland team.

However, combining the skills of Carr and Cooper will be fun to watch in Oakland in the foreseeable future…assuming he doesn’t become another Heyward-Bay.

Instant Grade: B-
