But, are we looking for a WR to groom to replace AJ or are we looking for someone to come in and replace K-Dub? There is NO, I repeat, NO, WR in this class that will ever come close to doing what AJ does, on or off the field IMO! If Megatron, Green, or Julio Jones were there and the Texans had a top 10 pick, then heck yeah, but that's not the case.

I can't sit here and tell you that Hopkins or Allen will turn out to be the best WR from this class and that they'll light up the NFL, but I think they are both more NFL ready than either Hunter or Rodgers. And, I think that's what the Texans are looking for, a WR who can come in and, with a little coaching, could start opposite AJ and give them some sure hands, good blocking, good route running, and hopefully a little more speed and play making ability then K-Dub.
No Wr is expected to replace AJ or matched his production this next season, they are expected to be a starting Wr 2 who will match AJ when he leaves in 2-3 years. Rogers does exactly that. Hopkins will never replace AJ as WR1. We may end settling for a good WR2 but why not get one that can become #1? Allen is a possibe WR1 in two years but concern about injury exists.
