Anyways...I give this pick an A....
Hopkins is a beast. I just didn't see elite physical talents from him, but the dude is a baller. Very happy to have him.
I remember JJ Watt being seen as a hard worker, high motor guy that maybe wasn't the strongest, fastest, best guy in college. I like work ethic guys and think Hopkins fits that mold. Love this pick.
