Go watch each guy's highlights and make sure you watch Hopkins' highlights last. I did, a few days ago, and I have to say that my eyes told me he was the best WR for us.

Listening? Just see for yourself by watching their highlights.

Your probably right. Just thought Hopkins if others cleared out first ya know. Man what I would give for some explosion at WR. We lack gamebreakers offensively.

His bowl game was fantastic. Yeah, he doesn't have the speed to lose corners in the dust, but he does have fantastic routes and moves that give him separation.

Much like that Andre Johnson guy.

I'm very happy with the pick. Hopkins has amazing hands--figuratively and literally--which is what you need to be an elite WR in the NFL. I think Hopkins will be a beast at WR2, definitely has the ceiling to take over when AJ retires, and will prove to be the best WR from this draft.

What I saw watching Patterson was he often trapped the ball instead of catching with his hands.

Default Re: 1st Round- DeAndre Hopkins WR Texans

This is a great pick. IMO he is the most pro ready WR in the draft. Runs good routes, knows how to get open...ect. He also was a terror his junior year playing against top talent. If you don't like the pick I suggest you watch him playing against LSU, they could not stop him. I recall that he gave Eric Reid, picked #18, fits. As for the trashed room at the combine, I would bet money that the room was trashed after he left. He left early and the Texans surely did their due diligence before making the draft pick.

Some video of Hopkins in 5 games of 2012: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oTJjRlGOCjk

Also the LSU game: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCVWGxNjF_k

He killed LSU in that game. It took about 1 quarter for them to figure out that they didn't have a player on their sideline that could cover Hopkins. And they paid for it.

Another: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bVWm9pNiXYY

Another showing him just catch one handers off a machine: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwB5J11rmdU. Doesn't really mean much but it is kind of cool.

Eh, I wouldn't trust the Texans private investigation division after the whole Cushing fiasco.

You have to remember all the way back years ago, the Detroit Lions chose wide receiver Charles Rogers instead of wide receiver Andre Johnson. They had Charles Rogers with the more explosive dynamic features, and Andre Johnson with the smoother hands and more fluid route running.

Call me a little bit biased, but I think we got the best receiver in the year's draft

You have it backwards. Rogers was considered the more polished receiver and Johnson the better athlete (though Rogers was considered an elite athlete himself). AJ has worked hard to develop his WR skills over the course of his career.
