Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper can do everything. The former Crimson Tide is just as likely to take a screen pass to the house as he is a go route.
There is not a player in the league who has better footwork than Cooper as he can make the best cornerbacks look silly and burn them deep.
Not surprisingly, quarterbacks had the second highest passer rating in the NFL when targeting Cooper on a go route, per Pro Football Focus.

Each season, Cooper has had memorable go routes go for six including his first career touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens, his touchdown Week 5 against the Los Angeles Chargers and his touchdown Week 8 in Tampa Bay.
Cooper is so tough to stop as he makes cornerbacks play up on him as Cooper has the explosiveness to score from anywhere. Once they get in his grill, he is too fast for a cornerback to stay with him.
With Cooper far from satisfied, he has worked his tail off this entire offseason and it should not surprise anyone to see him become the best deep-threat in the NFL next season.
