They continue to this same play since beating OU. Based on what I've seen I would use a 6th or 7th on Hopkins and try and sign Walters as a UDFA. In addition I would also try and sign UT NT Chris Whaley as another UDFA. He has the potential to be another Henry Melton.
Whaley started out as a RB just like Melton. There are alot of similarities.
I would be willing to spend a 6th rd pick on both Hopkins and Walters. (I'm an unabashed UT homer)
It's amazing how much the Horns Defense and OL has improved since the begining of the season. Diaz must have been like a plague that has been cure from the UT program.
