Because Rodgers is not NFL ready and he may never be ready. He lacks discipline on and off the field. Besides, the Texans will never pick him. Allen and Hopkins are more NFL ready and both may have the talent to become the #1 WR. If you compare the Combine #'s of Rodgers and Hopkins, they are close. Rodgers is 1" taller and 3 lbs heavier (Rodgers 6'2" 217, Hopkins 6'1" 214). He ran 0.05 seconds faster in the 40 (Rodgers 4.52, Hopkins 4.57). He did 5 less benches (Rodgers 10, Hopkins 15). He jumped 3.5" higher in the vertical (Rodgers 39.5", Hopkins 36"). But all measurements aside, I think the Texans are looking for someone to come in now and replace K-Dub, not try to bring in AJ's replacement now and let him play K-Dub's spot while he learns. They want to win now and I think Hopkins or Allen give them the best chance at that.
