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 agree, Hopkins is a beast! I was excited as he was falling right into our lap. He was the 2nd best WR behind Austin imo. Good, size, good hands, good speed...what more could you ask for & how couldn't you give this "A" grade is beyond me. I only thought Hopkins, Hunter, & Allen were the options but the latter 2 have question marks. Patterson's too raw & the mental aspect of his game was being questioned too much. Needless to say, I'm excited about having DeAndre in Houston & FINALLY a guy w/ true #2 potential.
