Tim Brown praises Amari Cooper

Raider Nation was quite pleased when Reggie McKenzie and the Raiders front office selected wide receiver Amari Cooper fourth overall in the 2015 NFL Draft, and now a former Raiders great is validating the pick.

Soon-to-be Hall of Famer Tim Brown addressed the national media on a conference call and expressed the ability of the young receiver that is donning the Silver & Black.

"This guy is just a superb, great receiver and I think he's going to be dominant Day 1," Brown said on the call. "I saw him at the Heisman deal and I told him then that I hope he's still there when the Raiders pick, because there was no way they could bypass him. I just thought that he was that great of a not-miss-type pick. I can't wait to see him Day 1. I think this guy is going to be great."

That’s some pretty high praise from the man that put together a 17-year NFL career, racking up 1,094 receptions for 14,934 yards and 100 touchdowns. Brown was also named to nine Pro Bowls.

Cooper has certainly performed well enough to make a solid first impression this offseason, and now he’ll have a chance to make even better impressions at training camp next week.
