Re: 1st Round- DeAndre Hopkins WR Texans
Detroit chose Rogers for really one reason: Michigan State product.
It was an emotional pick. The Kipers of the Draft World weren't all that high on Rogers (pun intended).
Lions should have picked AJ, and they blew it.
Rogers was not a phenom. He was thin, questionable hands, and yeah...maybe FASTER than AJ, but I don't recall anybody cursing the Texans for passing on Rogers. It was more like "Whew! They chose ROGERS?!?!"
A true gift.
