No. 19 Amari Cooper

Position: Wide receiver

School: Alabama

Height: 6-foot-1

Weight: 202 pounds

Year: Sophomore

Why he's No. 19: Explosive play-making receiver who helped lead the Tide to their third national title in four seasons. As a freshman, Cooper led Alabama receivers with 53 catches for 895 yards and nine touchdowns. Of Cooper’s 53 catches, 36 resulted in first downs and 26 were 15 yards or more. Cooper had four 100-yard receiving games as a freshman, including three in his last four games. He should thrive again with A.J. McCarron returning at QB.
