Former Alabama Crimson Tide standout and current Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper is going to be a very good pro.
During his first few games in the NFL preseason, Cooper has been able to show flashes of brilliance. However, it was what he was able to do in Week 3 that really caught everyone’s attention.
While he was lined up against Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson, who is one of the top defensive backs in the pros, Cooper ran a perfect route and shook Peterson so badly that the Pro Bowler was put on skates.
Cooper gained 37-yards on the play.
It was a clear sign that Cooper has had no issues adjusting to NFL speed and that he will be an incredible weapon for the Raiders moving forward.
Just watch the play below.
Cooper and the Raiders open the season on Sept. 13 against the Cincinnati Bengals at O.co Coliseum.
