I've watched him run into an extra gear. He is very, very aggressive once in the ball is in the air. Hard to knock off his stride, catches the ball even with interference.
So no, he's not a 40 time guy, but neither was Jerry Rice. You aren't going to be a great GM if you go after slowish guys from small schools on a regular basis. But you go after special guys.
I think Hopkins has the potential to be a special player. I see the physical tools-- just about learning the offense.
I agree with that. Hopkins plays like a buzz saw at the WR position.
