With the third-pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars should be selecting wide receiver Amari Cooper. The big debate in this draft at wide receiver is whether Cooper or Kevin White is the better pick, but for the Jaguars, Cooper makes sense.

Last year, the Jaguars selected Blake Bortles to hopefully be their franchise quarterback, and now surrounding him with talent is important. In the offseason, the Jaguars signed tight end Julius Thomas, and now adding a wide receiver like Cooper will make their offense much better.

The Jaguars have some good young talent at wide receiver from last year’s draft, but Cooper has the potential to be elite. Cooper dominated at Alabama in the SEC, and if the Jaguars select him, Bortles and Cooper will become a dynamic duo. Jacksonville has been a frequent visitor to the Top-5 of the NFL Draft, but they hope Cooper will be their last Top-5 pick for a long time.

Like the Jaguars need to surround their young quarterback with talent, the Oakland Raiders will need to do the same for Derek Carr. Since Cooper was selected by the Jaguars, the Raiders will be selecting wide receiver Kevin White from West Virginia.

White had a fantastic combine, and may have more upside than Cooper, and could also be selected above him. The Raiders are very thin with talent at the wide receiver position, and White could instantly become their No.1 option.

Last season, White totaled 109 receptions, 1,447 receiving yards, and 10 receiving touchdowns. White’s physical tools are outstanding, as he ran a 4.35 40-yard dash, and also bench pressed 225 pounds 23 times. White would be a great choice by the Raiders to help their young quarterback improve in his second year.
