6. Amari Cooper, Junior Wide Receiver, Alabama Crimson Tide

2014 Season: 71 Receptions for 1,132 Yards, 9 TD’s

For a while, Blake Sims looked like a Heisman candidate. And while he is a good quarterback, the truth is Amari Cooper is a superstar. Which is why we have him on our Heisman watch.

Cooper is by far the best wide receiver in college football this year, and with the door back open again for Alabama to make it into the SEC Championship game and in control of its own destiny for all of its goals, he will have plenty of chances to prove he is a Heisman contender. Starting with this Saturday against LSU.

Having two 200-yard games, six of eight games with more than 100 yards and 91 yards in another game, and doing all of this in the SEC West is amazing. Cooper has flat-out dominated the competition and will be an NFL star eventually. The most remarkable part of all of this is that he is playing as a No. 1 receiver at only 6’1, not 6’3 or 6’4. This guy’s skill set is just unbelievable.

And that’s why he’s on our Heisman watch.
