It's weird to talk of wide receivers being aggressive, but with his hands/body positioning, he collects the ball as soon as it is anywhere near him.
(I know there was a Chron article talking about how Martin and Jean are better this year. And they are. And that they are ahead of Hopkins in the playbook. And they are. But Hopkins is just such a fun receiver to watch in ways that the collection of WRs post-AJ aren't. Both AJ and Hopkins are the kind of receivers who do stuff in practice that make you go whoa a couple of times a practice. There's a reason why Hopkins is playing with the 1s--learn up faster, and because whoa that upside. Love watching him play.)
