Top 10 Cleveland Browns of 2022: Where does Nick Chubb land?
No. 4 Amari Cooper, WR
The Browns now have a legitimate No. 1 wide receiver, something they haven’t had forever. Amari Cooper was originally drafted by the Oakland Raiders in 2015 as the fourth overall pick. Since then, he’s had a very impressive and consistent career where he’s registered five seasons of gaining over 1,000 yards thus far.
With the Dallas Cowboys, he had three strong campaigns in a row. He caught 292 passes for 3,893 yards and 27 touchdowns. His 13.7 yards after the catch average in his career is also an impressive mark. He’s a four-time Pro Bowl selection and has routinely been selected in the yearly NFL Top 100.
I recently watched a replay of the Cowboys game against the Eagles during the 2019 season where Cooper had one of the best games of his career. He caught 10 passes in that game for 217 yards including three touchdowns. He was magnificent that game, catching everything thrown his way.
He caught a 75-yard touchdown pass from his quarterback Dak Prescott late in the fourth quarter and then helped win the game in overtime on a nice 15-yard catch for the winning touchdown.
He’s had more than a few of these types of all-star performances. He’s had two other games of having caught more than 200 yards in his career and many games of over 100 yards receiving in a game.
The 28-year-old still has a lot to showcase, and I imagine having Deshaun Watson throwing him the ball will only increase his future ranking on this list. For now, he’s No. 4. but that may change next season.
