Default Re: Draft Grade - Round 1 DeAndre Hopkins

I'm not grading him yet until I review more games.

Right now, I wish the Texans had traded down though; perhaps multiple trades - down and then back up into the mid second, keeping two seconds and two thirds is the key.

Hopkins is a beast. I just didn't see elite physical talents from him, but the dude is a baller. Very happy to have him.
I agree, Hopkins is a beast! I was excited as he was falling right into our lap. He was the 2nd best WR behind Austin imo. Good, size, good hands, good speed...what more could you ask for & how couldn't you give this "A" grade is beyond me. I only thought Hopkins, Hunter, & Allen were the options but the latter 2 have question marks. Patterson's too raw & the mental aspect of his game was being questioned too much. Needless to say, I'm excited about having DeAndre in Houston & FINALLY a guy w/ true #2 potential.

I said a while back that people should just remove Patterson from their boards because he's just not the type of guy Kubiak wants in the huddle.

Default Re: Draft Grade - Round 1 DeAndre Hopkins

Solid A for me. WR was the only true glaring need on the team imo.

I studied the WR's more than any other position this year. Several weeks ago, I really honed in on Hopkins as a real good fit for what the Texans need.

Sort of a poor man's AJ in some respects. Not the physical specimen that Andre is/was but his game reminds me of Andre - plays physical, good run after catch, comes up big when it matters, consistently productive, willing blocker, good route runner, not a huge deep threat or true burner but can get deep when needed. I loved watching the clips of him, and he dominated some damn good teams/corners.

High floor for this guy. I don't see bust when I look at him. Safest WR pick in the draft imo, and he is the most polished as well. He is ready to start now opposite Andre. It would be a huge upset if he isn't starting day one. Plug him in for the next decade.

Guys that he compares too (at least for me) - A. Boldin, R. Wayne, Roddy White.

Great job Rick and company!

I´m really looking forward to your analysis... in the past drafts those were a real help for us out of towners (or out of continenters) to evalue players we haven`t reallly seen play.

I'm not sold on Mitchell. The Texans need to draft a good nt. Teams are going to focus on JJ this year and the Texans need to draft some help on the dl for him.

Dobbins is 30 years old and more of a backup than a starter. The Texans need a good ILB next to Cushing. And they don't know how Cushing will be this year after surgery. But Cushing is such a workout warrior that he will probably be back full force. The other option is to kick Reed inside by drafting an OLB. Maybe draft ILB and OLB because in the 3-4 defense LB's are the heart and soul.

The Texans also need someone to replace Antonio Smith in case they don't resign him next year. So DE becomes another important need. They drafted Crick last year but the jury is still out on him. Need depth at DE at the very least.

And finally Ed Reed was a great signing but the guy is 35 and an injury away from leaving a gaping hole in the Texans defense. Plus I believe the wise thing to do would be to draft a good safety prospect to learn under one of the greatest all time.

So yeah I agree with you about the Texans needing depth. But I also think they have some questionable players starting that could be replaced with the right picks.

I guess I didn't make it clear enough.

Let say we did the trade that the Patriots did; it would give us the following picks: 52 (2nd rd), 83 (third round), 102 (fourth round), and 229 (7th round).

We also have these picks: 57 (second round), 89 (third round), 95 (third round), and five other picks.

That's a total of two (2) second rounders, three (3) third rounders and seven (7) other picks.

From 52, to move up to the middle (48) is only 4 slots.
What I mean is that we should be able to use one or two mid and/or late round picks to move up 4-8 spots in the second round, keeping intact two second rounders and three third rounders (rather than 2 third rounders as I had stated.)

Not that we have to, but if we want to, we could.

Quote from the Panthers GM which I think applies superbly to this situation:

Quote:
“No. Why not? . . . If I have a dollar, I’d rather have the dollar than the three dimes. That’s all there is to it,” Gettleman said. “There’s no, listen, when you trade back, you can think you’re smart, but there’s no guarantee, there are none. From my view, Star was too good to pass up. Why talk yourself out of somebody good, ‘Oh I’m going to be clever.

I think the Texans were stunned that only Austin had been taken prior to their pick at 27. No brainer pick. At only 20 years old he can probably still beef up some more. This guy will be a play maker. Welcome aboard Hopkins!

Default Re: Draft Grade - Round 1 DeAndre Hopkins

I gave it a B, but really it should be an A. I like that they filled a need, and got a real football player. You cant argue with the pick unless you just prefer WR player A over WR player B. And that is based on the information you have, and not the information the Texans have. At least we didnt take a Center projected by most in the 3rd round.

Default Re: Draft Grade - Round 1 DeAndre Hopkins

I really like this pick, and I don't think the Texans had to hesitate to pick him, however I do think the Vikings offered their 2nd, 3rd and 4th to the Texans to move into that spot for Patterson. The Texans let the clock run down to about 2 minutes left when the pick was made, so you know they were discussing the trade back, but they used the pick instead. That tells me a lot about how much they wanted Hopkins, and I think he's a great fit for our offense, and should contribute from day 1. Great start to the draft, I just hope there's a run on WRs, QBs and Centers in the 2nd so that some good defensive guys fall to us.

And it's not like I'm advocating trading down all the times. You do it when it makes sense. The Texans traded back last year, didn't they?

This year, if the Texans had made the trade that Belichik executed, with pick 52 and 83, they might be able to get 2 out of the 7 or 8 receivers remaining that a lot of TT draftniks would be happy with. Let them two compete with each other and the guys we currently have for the two spots next to AJ.

Hunter, Rodgers, Patton, Dobson, Allen, Woods, Wheaton are some of the names.
Or the Texans can use one pick for a WR and one for a choice of OT, pass rusher (DE or OLB), ILB, NT, safety.

And they still have the 102 pick for addl' depth and the extra seventh to take a flyer on a guy that is really raw or didn't have a clear position.

To me, that makes a lot of sense.

Default Re: Draft Grade - Round 1 DeAndre Hopkins

I gave it a B+. Only thing keeping it from being an A has nothing to do with Hopkins but more to do with the draft situation. It's a very deep WR draft, and I'm worried we won't be taking another one because we used our first on Hopkins (I'm a huge proponent of double dipping at WR this year)

I might have given an A to Sylvester Williams, or Matt Elam. If we pick up someone like Aaron Dobson or Cobi Hamilton with our 4th I'd consider this pick an A also.

So... it's a B+ NOW. But if they do double-dip and take another WR later, then it could go to A?

Yes, It's my opinion and my grade. I want 2 WR's in this very talented WR pool of a draft and I believe they won't take another one because they've used their first on one. I said it had nothing to do with the player but with the situation. I really like Hopkins, I also really like 4-5 other receivers. Is there a problem with that?
