There are over 40 NFL rookies attending the NFLPA Rookie Premiere this weekend in Los Angeles. Among them is Raiders fourth overall pick, wide receiver Amari Cooper.
One of the draws of such an event is these rookies get to don their official team jersey for the first time. This means a lot of photo ops. Here are a few shots of Cooper at the NFLPA Rookie Premiere.
But before the jerseys come out, the autograph signing happens. Here is Cooper signing cards for Panini America.
Then his first look at the jersey he will be wearing on an NFL field hopefully for a very long time.
Then for the official group shot with his fellow rookies. Cooper is third row down, third from the right, looking quite serious.
Cooper and Melvin Gordon seem to have struck up a bit of a friendship. The two took the stage together as Heisman finalists earlier this year. Soon these two will face off as rivals twice a year. Here Cooper has Gordon take a picture of him in his jersey.
And here's the goods
Love this shot. Amari Cooper getting some serious air for the fingertip grab. Jameis Winston getting posterized.
A photo from Panini America of Amari in uniform supporting breast cancer awareness.
And last but not least... Derek Carr's new favorite target.
