It was a successful rookie year for wide receiver Amari Cooper in Oakland. The Raiders became a competitive franchise for the first time since 2002 and he was its main catalyst. Cooper collected five 100-yard receiving performances and was the first rookie to post 1,000 yards in a season. He finished 2015 with 1,070 yards and six touchdowns on 72 receptions.
The former Alabama standout, Biletnikoff Award winner and Heisman finalist received a high honor Thursday from the NFL, as he was selected to participate in this year’s Pro Bowl.
