Whether that comes off of YAC or a bunch of deep passes doesn't matter. It stretches the defense & that's what we need our WR to do. Back them up & spread them out.
If he's got KDub numbers, less than 13 ypc he's not much of an upgrade. He's an undersized TE.
Jacoby jones did exactly what you said as a Texans at least catch, stretching the defense and people could not wait to run him out of town.
and undersized TE describes Walter.
Hopkins was drafted and is expected to be a legitimate starting NFL WR. This means he is a complete player...get open, catch the ball several times a game, get yards per catch, block well enough..and on occasion make a play that average WRs can't make.
