Default Re: 1st Round- DeAndre Hopkins WR Texans

I don't think you can set the bar for Hopkins based on the rookies last year because their situations are different.

The top two outside receivers were drafted quite higher and were the number one receiver from day one.
Kendall Wright worked out of the slot and saw a lot of short catches.
A J Jenkins was drafted at 29, I think. He barely played and did not have a single catch.

Hilton is another slot receiver. With the Colts attempted 628 passes; Wayne on one side and the speedy Avery on the other, the short routes were there for the taking.

Givens was on the Rams team that doesn't really have a number one receiver.

With AJ on the team, and how the Texans like to distribute the ball to their TEs and RBs, FBs, it's probably more realistic to expect the low 30s for Hopkins.
Anything else is gravy.
