Oakland Raiders: Criticism Of Cooper Is Perfectly Fair And Valid

For many, many years, the Oakland Raiders lacked a genuine number one receiver. They didn’t have anybody who could stretch the field, make big plays, and keep opposing defenses honest. That all changed though, when they drafted Amari Cooper out of Alabama in the first round of the 2015 Draft.

Suddenly, the Raiders had the threat on the outside they lacked for so long. Paired with Michael Crabtree, Oakland has one of the most potent 1-2 receiving punches in the league. And they”ve given the Raiders one of the most prolific offenses that they’ve had in a very long time.
