WR Cooper (?) from FL

Was watching the bowl game and the receiver that really impressed was Cooper. He had a great game with several long receptions that showcased excellent speed, size, power and truly impressive hands. I have no idea where he projects, but he'd definitely be worth a look in the later rounds. Reminded me of Ed McCaffrey.
We all know the success of Florida receivers.

Cooper hasn't done much til this season. I see no reason he shouldn't be around in the 5th+ unless he blows things away in the offseason workouts.

Late 3rd-4th round. Good size, speed and hands and the success of Louis Murphy will help his stock.
Riley Cooper is very good it's just that last year the Gators had Percy Harvin & Louis Murphy. I'd say he's better than any of Alabama's wideouts & J.Shipley from Texas. Wouldn't mind picking him up. But, what do you guys think of #83 WR 6'5" 212 David Nelson from the Florida Gators, as well.

Over time, MLB players (pro-level) make more money than NFL players (pro-level) during their playing careers.

Financially speaking, with less risk of his entire body, MLB was a better career decision. He's also seen some playing time at the pro level this past year.
He's not as fast as you think. Florida's offense wasn't as explosive because they lacked speed at the receiver position. That was there problem all year long.

Yeah I know about that and the money but I think he would have been a better football player. He would have made a good slot WR or even #2
