Amari Cooper NFL Draft Prop Odds
CHICAGO, IL (The Spread) - The odds suggest that Alabama receiver Amari Cooper will be selected in the top 5 of Thursday's 2015 NFL Draft.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the over/under for Cooper's draft position is 5.5, with the under carrying better odds (-200) than the over (+150). Cooper and Kevin White are considered the top receivers in this year's draft class and both are expected to be taken in the top 10.
Most mock drafts have the Oakland Raiders selecting a wideout with the No. 4 overall pick on Thursday night, whether it be Cooper or White. If the Raiders do take a receiver at No. 4, the other wideout could go No. 7 to the Chicago Bears, who traded Brandon Marshall to the Jets in March.
One of the recent rumors involving Cooper came from Yahoo Sports, which reported that one AFC personnel man says the Jaguars like Cooper "more than they are letting on." The selection of Cooper to Jacksonville at No. 3 would come as somewhat of a surprise, if nothing else because the Jags selected Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson in the second round of last year's draft.
