Hopkins isn't among the top guys with a good combination of those tests.
Well, a 1.55 10-yard split is really good and a 36 inch vertical is good as well. He also killed it in the gauntlet drill. And he measured in with very big hands and very long arms as I've said before. I just see a Roddy White clone when I watch him play, though, which is what matters most.
He had the over 4.5 forty time at the combine but he ran sub 4.5 at his pro day so take that for what it's worth.
