Out of what is now looking like a crappy draft, we definitely nailed this pick
He's definitely a special player. Everyone in the NFL has ability, some guys have more of it. Hopkins is blessed with great ability, but he also has drive and the attitude that often is the difference between a good player and a great player. I'm excited to have him as a Texan.
