Re: Predict the Texans' Rookie with the biggest impact in 2013
I think Hopkins is going to be good, but rookie WRs have a tougher row to hoe than rookie defenders. With Ed Reed missing significant time, Swearinger's path to being a key contributor is a little more smoothly paved.
The other option would be one that everyone would overlook, and that's if one of the rookies takes over and holds down the RT spot. That would be exceptional, and everyone would still talk about Hopkins and Swearinger.
A real MVP contributes in all phases of the game.
