NFL Draft Prep – Cooper vs. White
CPGM Headley

Leading up to the NFL Draft many teams will continue their evaluation process on prospects while altering their draft boards in preparation for Draft day. Couch Potato GM will provide you a breakdown of two prospects matched against each other with similar draft projections to get you prepped for the 2015 draft. Voting option below for your input on who you think the better prospect is.

The Similarities: Here we have the top two receivers in the draft as both Kevin White and Amari Cooper should be drafted within the top 10. The WR needy Oakland Raiders at pick 4 will have a decision to either draft a pass rusher or one of these two beasts to pair with second year pro QB Derek Carr. At first sight you might not see many similarities in their respective games but both White and Cooper are the same when it comes to being an alpha male receiver, who demands the ball and coverage. White impressed teams at the NFL combine with a 4.35 40 time but don’t sleep on Cooper (4.42) as both receivers possess the ability to take the top off a defense vertically as well as rack up yards after the catch with excellent open field moves and top end speed. Strong hands with the ability to make the tough catch in traffic is yet another similarity that these two game changing NFL ready WRs possess. The sky is the limit for these prospects.

The Differences: It’s easy to point out the differences between White and Cooper once you put on the tape. White, a more physical receiver likes to play above the field, high pointing many 50/50 balls making him a more dominant red zone player. Cooper on the other hand beats defenders with his crisp route running with his understanding of coverages and route concepts making him difficult to cover. Another difference is their experience and how they have gotten to where they are now. White, a late bloomer played two seasons of junior college football before breaking out last season which has lead to the “one-year-wonder” label. Cooper hit the ground running after leaving Miami Northwestern high school receiving consensus freshman All-American honors going on to star at Alabama for 3 productive seasons starting in 30 games and catching 31 TDs. Cooper has a big edge in experience.

NFL Comparison: Kevin White – Julio Jones; Amari Cooper – Torry Holt

The Verdict: The Front office likes Amari Cooper
