Following his successful college career, Cooper declared for the 2015 NFL Draft and was selected fourth overall by the Oakland Raiders. In his rookie season, Cooper quickly made his mark, becoming the first rookie Raider to surpass 1,000 receiving yards and earning a Pro Bowl selection.

Cooper continued to be a key player for the Raiders until the middle of the 2018 season, when he was traded to the Dallas Cowboys. With the Cowboys, Cooper’s performance excelled even further. He became a favorite target for quarterback Dak Prescott and played an instrumental role in the Cowboys’ offense.
