Yep, I believe that Mercilus is the only Texans first round pick not to start opening day (unless the Brown/Salaam platoon caused Ephraim to technically be the starter). Mercilus was a pick at a future need, but not a current need, so that clearly differentiates him from Hopkins.

I think it's going to take more than a few foul ups to keep DeAndre out of the starting lineup - it would take something of a monumental nature.

A trashed hotel room at the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis belonged to Clemson wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins and Rutgers wide receiver Mark Harrison, according to league sources.
NFL sources also told ESPN they believe Harrison is not responsible for what happened to the room.
Urine and feces were found around the bathroom, toothpaste was left on the mirror and partially eaten food was on one of the beds, sources told ESPN. Neither player made any attempt to clean up the mess, according to witnesses, and neither player has taken responsibility for the room. But, the NFL community is now well aware of which players occupied it.

One NFL coach expressed disappointment to hear that Hopkins, regarded as a potential second-round pick, may have been involved.

Also reported by http://www.sbnation.com/nfl-mock-dra...hed-hotel-room

http://www.nfl.com/draft/story/0ap10...ing-hotel-room
http://www.cincyjungle.com/2013/4/18...pkins-and-mark
One would think that players would be on their best behavior while attending the biggest job interview of their football careers, but it appears that not everybody shared that sentiment. Initially, Jeff Foster, the president of the National Football Scouting organization who runs the combine, declined to identify the two responsible for the feces-fest, but now, ESPN mega-insider Adam Schefter has outed the duo as Clemson WR DeAndre Hopkins and Rutgers WR Mark Harrison.

If it is okay for you to say he had left it should be okay for others to post the opposite. I wasn't there so don't know but it is a story that should be at least considered by a team. Obviously, Texans not too concerned.

I believe the Texans were most impressed by his organic artistry while finger painting in the hotel. Good hands are hard to find...clean ones are more at a premium. -PoohCaso

I don't see the harm in letting him learn on the job. It's not like anyone not named Andre was getting the ball last year anyways.

Lloyd maybe but what possible benefit is Barden? He has played so little he almost qualifies as a rookie.

Devone Bess is available isn't he? That would be the guy if you want a vet. Mid round pick is what they were looking for.

Well, if it wasn't at the combine, the 4.41 doesn't count. Didn't he run a 4.57 at the combine? That's his number. 4.5

But I do agree that he plays fast.

He doesn't look slow to me, so it's very possible that there's less drop of between his "shorts" time & his "pads" time than most guys..

That is a position every NFL team disagrees with you on.

There is a reason tons of combine attendees also perform at pro days and the scouts attend.

So you think a guy's combine time is the only measurement that can be used to judge a player? Sure, it might deserve the most weight, but seriously?!?

82 catches for a 17.1 yard per reception average. That's a lot of receptions to still manage such a high average. And 18 TDs. Imagine if he were fast.

Default Re: 1st Round- DeAndre Hopkins WR Texans

tough, competitive boundary WR who can quickly transition to NFL (Posey on PUP) & fits right in Texan scheme. Solid pick, can't believe he was still on the board, Texans let the draft come to them.

Gary decided to play it safe. (Not suprising) Gigem LOL

I guess AJ's words carry some weight in Gary's world.
we need depth pretty much everywhere else except NT. In the first round I think you draft your starter. I like the pick, we have needed a #2 WR for years and I think we finally got it.

I love how in most of those highlights, after he makes the catch he pops back up, tosses the ball to the ref and heads back to the line of scrimmage. He looks intense, but isn't showboating. Like you mention, rather similar to a decent receiver already on our team.

I'm excited about the pick.
