Amari Cooper knows why he's struggling with drops
Amari Cooper believes he has a grip on why he's struggled with drops early in 2017.
It's been a rough start to the 2017 season for Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper. The young playmaker has struggled with drops, tallying six over the first three games of the season, which is double the next closest player.
After a tough game in Week 3 against the Washington Redskins, Cooper spoke about the drops and says he believes he has an idea as to why they are happening.

This would make sense, as Cooper has impressive speed and could easily be looking at making the next move before fully securing the ball. It was pretty apparent this was what happened on his brutal drop against the Redskins, at the very least.

Time will tell, but the hope is that Cooper can fix this issue immediately, and get things right against a tough Broncos defense.
