Cooper was the winner of the Biletnikoff Award as a junior last season as well as a finalist for the Heisman Trophy as well as a unanimous first-team All-American and was SEC Offensive Player of the Year while leading the nation in receptions (124) and finished second in yards (1,727) and touchdown receptions (16).

Throughout his three-year career in ‘Bama, Cooper played in 40 games (30 starts) and hauled in 31 touchdown receptions.

Cooper accelerates to a top speed quickly and stays running full-speed at the top of his routes. Uses quick feet to constantly keep defenders guessing and sticks his routes in and out of breaks. Cooper also has solid hands and is unafraid to work the middle of the field.

One knock on Cooper is his lack of size (6-foot-1, 211 pounds) as he sometimes is unable to block out the defender to get the ball. He has also dropped 13 balls over the last two seasons.
