Hunter is a guy who was coming off of an ACL tear in 2012 and was pretty good, but he wasn't like he was in 2010, so you worry with that, coupled with him weighing in at a slender 196lbs. Hopkins looked great so far and I have to have him as the top prospect out of the 3 listed. I'd probably put Williams second and Hunter 3rd just based on size and injury history.

I really like Hopkins though so I'm probably very biased. He just looks like an NFL receiver playing for Clemson. Big guy, decent hands, maybe doesn't have a top gear like guys like TY Hilton or Desean Jackson, but the kid can play and make big plays.

Also, I'm willing to bet that the Texans are going to take a very long look at Ryan Swope if he's there in the 3rd around their pick.
Yeah, that weight on Hunter concerns me some because if he attempts to bulk up & his knee becomes an issue then you would think the additional weight would only compound the problem. He definitely needs to gain weight imo.

I like Hopkins as well, but many will knock him because of his speed. I still believe he could be a good player despite that due to his size & hands. The Roddy White comparison seems to be one that is actually fitting of him & I would be elated if that were the case & he was a Texan.

I think plenty of teams are going to take a look at Swope after his combine performance. He definitely raised his stock & he could be that one player that gets taken earlier then most expected. The Texans could be the one. They reached, imo, on Bullock last season so Swope could be the next Aggie reach for them.
