Wow, seriously? an average WR2? I'm not an extreme homer, but the guy has "it" for sure. Some of the best hands I've ever seen on a football field combined with superior body control. No he isn't the fastest, but give me an average speed guy with Hopkins ball skills and body control over an inconsistent burner any day. And do keep in mind that as he matures, his route running will very likely improve providing more separation.
