Future Watch: Cooper Kupp Rookie Football Cards, Rams – Cooper Kupp was drafted by the Los Angeles Rams with the 69th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. This 6-1 wide receiver who hails from Yakima, Washington, is headed to the playoffs.
None of this success would have been possible without the solid college career he carved out for himself Eastern Washington. He was redshirted in 2013 after starring for the Eastern Washington Eagles in high school.
In 2014, he was named as a first-team, All-American player. He had 104 catches for 1,431 yards and 16 touchdowns. He was a notable punt returner as well.
In 2015, he had 114 catches for 1,642 yards and 19 touchdowns breaking a Big-Sky single season record for grabs. He was named the Big-Sky Offensive MVP and he won the Walter Payton Award for being the best offensive player in all of college football.
After 2016 his 6,464 career receiving yards were the most in FCS history. He passed one of the best, Hall of Famer Jerry Rice. His 73 career touchdowns were also the most in FCS history.
Here is a highlight catch from this budding talent:
Kupp has had a great season. In 15 games he had 62 receptions for 869 yards. He averaged over 14 yards per catch and he had five touchdowns. He was a good target for quarterback and roommate, Jared Goff.
The Rams will host the Falcons in a wild card game. Kupp will likely be a player who gets a lot of targets in this big game. The experience will do a lot for the player and exposure will do a lot for his rookie cards so consider that a warning. A word to the wise.
