Offseason Rookie Studs NFL.com 2 of the 8 are Texans rookies
 
DeAndre Hopkins among offseason rookie standouts

DeAndre Hopkins, Houston Texans wide receiver


Under general manager Rick Smith and coach Gary Kubiak, the Texans habitually have dispensed with the notion of competition when it comes to first-round picks. They are drafted to be thrown into the fire as immediate contributors. Kubiak's praise for Hopkins already has run the gamut from "extremely special" to "obviously very gifted" and "very competitive."

Asked how quickly Hopkins might be ready for a major offensive role, Kubiak replied, "I'm expecting it right off the get-go." Between Hopkins and a healthy Ben Tate, the Texans finally might possess enough playmakers to get past the New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens in the AFC playoffs.

D.J. Swearinger, Houston Texans safety

As Ed Reed waffles on his availability for Week 1, the No. 57 overall pick continues to impress the Texans coaching staff with confidence, instincts and ball skills. "He's very smart in picking things up with what we're doing," Kubiak said last week.

"I think he's going to be a big contributor early."
