Default Amari Cooper WR

Why are we chasing 100s of unrealistic playoff scenarios instead of positioning to draft this kid

I like Amari Cooper, but I like Kevin White more. Bigger more NFL ready body with big hands.

Other than the QBs those are instances of having two and planning that way not planning for succession.

Some teams have good GMs and some teams don't.

I'm agreeing with you. We don't need to tank to find talent to win. The Colts may have tanked to get Luck, but they didn't tank to get Freeney, Mathis, Harrison, Wayne, or Hilton.

Gotcha! I misunderstood the point you were making. I thought you were saying we needed to tank to try to match up

No, no, no... imo, tanking, or trying not to win for any reason is indicative of deep rooted problems within an organization.

Ask 5: Where would Amari Cooper rank in 2014 WR class?
Quote:
I polled five NFL executives and asked them where Cooper would rank among the star-studded 2014 class. Here are their answers:

Quote:
Executive No. 1: Fourth
"He would rank right behind Sammy, Odell and Mike Evans. I have him graded the same as Cooks and Benjamin coming out."

Executive No. 2: Fourth
"I'd have him behind Watkins, Beckham and Evans. I think there's a significant drop behind those three guys. Then I'd have Cooper above Cooks, Benjamin and (Green Bay's Davante) Adams."

Executive No. 3: Second
"I like Cooper better than Evans coming out but I thought Sammy was the best of the bunch. (Cooper) would be second on my sequence list of wideouts."

Executive No. 4: Third
"I would slide him in at No. 3, behind Watkins and Beckham but ahead of Benjamin and Evans."

Executive No. 5: Third
"I put him right behind Evans and Watkins due to size. I loved Brandin Cooks but I'd put Cooper just ahead of him. He's a better player all-around. Despite the freaky catch (on Sunday), I'd still have Cooper over Beckham."
