What say you?
I tried to get some numbers on our expectations for Hopkins' I got more coach speech from a bunch of guys who can't stand coach speech.
That said, for Hopkins to get into the top 5, he'll have to change our offense. By that I mean that I believe our offense looks conservative primarily because we've only got one deep threat & secondly we haven't been running the ball like we've quickly grown accustomed to.
Both of those can be attributed to the quality of #2 WR we've got on our team. If Hopkins forces the LBs to play deeper, opening up our run game were we can put up some big plays with the ol' rope-a-dope.... I'm saying yeah.
For that to happen, he's got to have a Torrey Smith type rookie year. 40-50 catches, 16+ avg.
