This comment has nothing to do with what I think about Hopkins' ability as Andre doesn't even always make the play. I'm sure Hopkins will make plenty of tougher catches in the future, it just didn't happen this time.
This kid is going to seamlessly slip into the #1 role once Andre hangs up the cleats.. he gets it. Every receiver believes they should make the catch, but not every receiver is willing to come out and say it and put blame on themselves. Plenty will point fingers elsewhere or say nothing at all. The fact that this kid is truly down in the dumps for not making a great catch, on what was a great play by the DB, is what is going to make him a great receiver going forward. Out of what is now looking like a crappy draft, we definitely nailed this pick
