Kupp Named to PFF All-Rookie Team

Posted Nov 8, 2017

Wide receiver Cooper Kupp was named to the PFF All-Rookie Team after an impressive showing through the first eight games.

Wide receiver Cooper Kupp was one of 11 players named to the Pro Football Focus midseason All-Rookie Team. Through eight games this year, the Eastern Washington product has established himself as the Rams’ primary slot receiver — known for being sure-handed and precise route running. 

The All-Rookie team is determined through an all-22 film review process and comprehensive analysis on first-year players throughout the NFL. Kupp was given an overall grade of 76.0 and was one of two rookie wide receivers on the list.

From Week 1, Kupp has been one of Los Angeles’ most significant offensive contributors — at least seeing 30 per game. In all, the wideout has recorded 26 receptions for 370 yards and three touchdowns, but his biggest impact has come after the catch.

Kupp’s 151 yards after the catch is the second best for rookie wide receivers, and he leads the league having forced seven missed tackles.
