Watch: Raiders rookie Amari Cooper burns defender twice on one play
The Raiders posted a video on Instagram of Cooper blowing past second-year corner Keith McGill with a stutter step at the line of scrimmage and crossing McGill over again with a cut at the top of his route. McGill couldn’t even come close to defending the pass.
The Raiders took Cooper with the fourth pick in this year’s draft after a stellar career at Alabama. He had 124 catches for 1,727 yards and 16 touchdowns in 14 games as a junior in 2014. The Raiders will hope he helps improve a passing offense that averaged the second-fewest net yards per attempt last season.
