The Oakland Raiders selected Amari Cooper No. 4 overall in the 2015 NFL draft on Thursday, grabbing a wide receiver in the opening round for the first time since the Great Darrius Heyward-Bey Experiment of 2009.

The following is a picture of the newly stamped Raider posing with Oakland wideout coach Rob Moore. According to the team's Twitter manager, this is Cooper's "game face":

Raiders fever: Catch it!

For what it's worth, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport says Oakland was Cooper's desired destination:

Hey—some people smile by not smiling.

Dan is on Twitter, basking in the mirth.
