Honestly, I'd be happy if he can get 32 catches or so at 15+ a piece & 10 TDs. Solid, & promising.
10 TDs in 32 catches? That would be quite a TD/reception ratio...
Quite unlikely, I mean.

10 TDs is exceptional. Andre only had 4. OD had 6. Arian Foster ran for 15. I don't think he'll get 10 touchdowns.

Davis was the #3 so is irrelevant whether or not you think he should have started. He was also a 5-6 year vet.

All three of your numbers are off based on history.

41 receptions is a very realistic rookie number. All 3 1st rounders who played last year beat that and a total of 9 rookies did.

15 ypr is not very realistic. AJ was at 14.8 ypr. All 3 1st rounders last year fell short of that with one at 9.8 ypr.

10 TD's is too high. AJ had 4. The best of last year's 1st rounders - 5.

It would be much more realistic to look for about 50 rec. at 12.5 ypr for 625 yds and around 5 TD's.

Default Re: 1st Round- DeAndre Hopkins WR Texans

I don't think you can set the bar for Hopkins based on the rookies last year because their situations are different.

The top two outside receivers were drafted quite higher and were the number one receiver from day one.
Kendall Wright worked out of the slot and saw a lot of short catches.
A J Jenkins was drafted at 29, I think. He barely played and did not have a single catch.

Hilton is another slot receiver. With the Colts attempted 628 passes; Wayne on one side and the speedy Avery on the other, the short routes were there for the taking.

Givens was on the Rams team that doesn't really have a number one receiver.

With AJ on the team, and how the Texans like to distribute the ball to their TEs and RBs, FBs, it's probably more realistic to expect the low 30s for Hopkins.
Anything else is gravy.

I'm not looking at any receiver outside of the Houston Texans.

I think Schaub will look for his crutches, I think Kubiak will rotate the WRs an ungodly amount & if he "feels" the pressure to win again, we'll probably see more two TE sets than 3 WR sets.

We'll probably never see 4 WRs

Who cares if they were drafted higher? They went to lame ass teams with no QB's and handily beat the expectations you guys are setting for Hopkins.

Larry Fitzgerald would like to know when he was demoted from #1 WR. In fact Floyd was the #3 WR in Arizona (he only started 3 games) and still beat your projections.

Wright only starting 5 games and coming in for slot duty works against your argument as he also beat your projections.

Hopkins is going to start and he is going to a team which threw for 700+ yards more than those teams.

The top two guys belong to the category of players drafted higher.

If you think that a guy drafted lower should perform as well as them, you might as well not drafting any player. Just take a guy off the street.

Wright, like I said, belongs to the slot category.
Many of those dump passes are just an extension of the run game.
Hopkins is not going to be used in that fashion here.

Which means crap. Charles Rogers was drafted higher than AJ. More importantly, as I said and you ignored it meant all of them went to crap teams with crap QB's.

Insane non sequitur. If you believe that then you just need to stop watching football. They are in the same ball park - 1st round. Every year actual performance is all over the place.

No he won't. He'll actually be on the field much more so your argument makes no sense.

A J Jenkins was drafted in the first round by the Niners; he had zero catch.
Might as well set the bar for Hopkins there.

Wright was on the field for 561 snaps; Britt was in for 600.
We'll see how much time Hopkins see this year.

Default Re: 1st Round- DeAndre Hopkins WR Texans

Floyd played for a bad team with mounting losses; they might as well give the youngsters more playing time to prep for the future.

The two most productive games for him was the last two in the season when they had absolutely nothing to play for.
In two other games against the Packers and some team I don't recall right now, 8 or 9 of his catches were late in the game when it was out of reach (garbage time).

Default Re: 1st Round- DeAndre Hopkins WR Texans

To me, each team is different in their system and their philosophy.
Some team incorporate their TEs into the game more; others like to go to their slot receivers.
The total number of pass attempts also needs to be taken into account because some team pass more than others.
Some team has nothing to play for at the mid way point of the season and play young players more.
Some team don't use their rookie WR as much.
Look at how many targets Jacoby, Posey, and Martin had in their first year.

If all the Texans get out of Hopkins is low 30's reception, that would be a disappointing 1st season.

Of the receivers in this draft, Hopkins is one of the 2 or 3 that are most "pro ready". He is certain to start on a team that attempts on average about 550 passes/season. I would guess that Hopkins would see roughly 1/6th of those targets, with a 60% completion ratio. That would give him about 55 receptions at probably 700-800 yards. 1000 yards is probably too much to expect, considering that only 2 rookie WRs (AJ Green and Anquan Boldin) have gone over that mark in the past 10 seasons.

Default Re: 1st Round- DeAndre Hopkins WR Texans

Here are the numbers from last year:

2012
AJ 112-1598-4
KW 41-518-2
KM 10-85-1
Posey and Jean with 6 each.

Posey only saw action in the last 4 games; he might see the field for 8 games this year (let's assume that for a moment).
As a second year player, he should see more targets.
KMart should also see more targets, supposedly.
So should Jean.
Graham may see more targets as well.
So how many of the 41 passes that went to KW might go to those players?
How many will be left for Hopkins if the Texans continue to give AJ his normal percentage of targets?

Default Re: 1st Round- DeAndre Hopkins WR Texans

In this offense, all things considered I'm guessing Hopkins has around 800 yards. Not sure about the TD's because that stuff is kind of weird for us.

But I think 700-800 yards (or in that ball park) is doable. If Hopkins proves himself he's not going to be rotating in and out. He's going to be a fixture on the field. And I've criticized Schaub plenty, but him in this offense equals yards being racked up generally speaking.

Here are the numbers from 2011:

2011
AJ played 7 games; he had 33 catches.

KW 39-474-3
JJ 31-512-2

Even with AJ playing only 7 games, the second receiver only got 39 catches.

The TEs, including Casey, totaled 100.

Maybe they don't, because Hopkins is a more dynamic player. Martin, Jean, and Posey (if and when he sees the field) are likely competing with each other for snaps and targets and not competing with Hopkins.

Let's assume that Hopkins was given all of Walter's snaps (which I personally doubt,) the other guys should at least see the same number of total snaps as a trio.

But with increasing familiarity with the system and the QBs, they should see more targets, even if only a few more.

Hey, but Hopkins can always try to be really effective from the get go to earn Kubiak's trust and end up seeing a lot of targets. It could happen.

I just don't think the percentage should call for the utmost optimistic figures.

I don't see why you don't believe Hopkins will at least get Walter's snaps. The Texans though so much of Walter, they cut him without offering a re-structure. The Texans thought enough of Hopkins to spend a 1st round pick.

Default Re: 1st Round- DeAndre Hopkins WR Texans

If he gets 40 catches and 600-700 yards with maybe 3 tds i'll be thrilled. Hopefully, another downfield threat keeps defenses lose and the entire offense is more productive. I'd love to see big numbers outta him but think instead it will help others more year one.

I think the addition of greg jones has been overlooked and that will help downfield as well as the threat of hopkins. I'm stoked about the offense despite a lack of faith in schaub. On defense we needed a nose tackle. Wont hurt us to much till we face playoff caliber teams...then...well...deja vu.

Not sure why you think the issue is how many will be left for Hopkins. Hopkins is the #2 - the question is how many will be left for the WRs deeper on the roster.

You are confusing targets and receptions. Walter was targeted 68 times and Martin 27, Jean 12 and Posey 14. So only Walter caught more than half the balls thrown to him (and he had an off year at just 60%). I'm sure Kubiak will be pulling his shiny new 1st rounder for the 41% club - one of whom won't even be available to mid-season at best.

One other thing to consider. Casey was targeted 45 times last season. Jones will be lucky to get 10. So there you go, 35 targets to spread around the others.
