What was your reaction when the Raiders drafted Amari Cooper?
Derek Carr: Excitement. I knew we were going to get a good player with the No. 4. We were going to get someone good, and we did. I was very excited to see Amari come to this team.
What does he bring to this offense that was missing last year?
Carr: He’s really good in and out his breaks. He has good command of his route tree. He’s going to be a productive player for us.
What are your expectations for Cooper in Year 1? Do you think he can have an impact.
Carr: I think my expectations of him are the same as he has for himself. I just want to see him come in, compete and make plays, and I think we will see him do that.
The Raiders were hurting for WR help and seem to have helped Carr and the offense by signing Michael Crabtree and drafting Cooper. Cooper already ranks as a low-end WR2 on our list, an area you haven't often seen Raiders ranked in the recent past. Crabtree is having a nice camp and that should only help Cooper, who we project for a line of 75-1,042-6
