I look at it like this.

If you have a particular guy you want and someone offers you to trade back, you've got to weigh what they're offering against how bad you want that guy and if you think he's going to be there when you get to pick. If you don't think he's going to be there and he's The Guy, then you don't trade back. You make your pick.

If you don't have The Guy but a bunch of guys you like or if you think you're the only one coveting your Guy so he'll still be there, go ahead and trade back.

I think the Texans looked Hopkins as The Guy and when he was there, they weren't going to risk losing him. I got no problem with that.

This.

And apparently "The Guy" for Belichick was gone and he figured with a fist-full of extra picks he might uncover a viable substitute. Hence, he pulled the trigger on the trade.

Grade A.
A starter in the late first round is just about what one should expect.
Why he dropped some balls is somewhat a mystery considering his big hands.
Hopkins actually played better (more explosive) than some of his test scores indicate.
It remains to be seen if that will hold true against NFL defenses.
That is probably part of his game that might hold him back from becoming a number one receiver, IMO.
