Default Re: 1st Round- DeAndre Hopkins WR Texans

If the Texans were planning on taking a WR in round 1, it's hard not to think they got the one they wanted. Hopkins was the 2nd WR taken, only behind Austin.

I think several WRs were ranked pretty close.

Patterson has the most talent - but is also really raw and seems to not be the smartest guy. Boom or bust guy that wouldn't help right away.

Allen has some red flags and bad workouts.

Hunter is kinda similar to Hopkins but seems to be just behind talent wise.

In the end we get a pro ready WR with great work ethic - and in the past we went pretty well with high character guys...

This was my guy from the start, so I am very happy with the selection. We have our #2 receiver.

Default Re: 1st Round- DeAndre Hopkins WR Texans

Although I like (Crapper) Hopkins, I would've rather Rick/Gary taken a chance on greatness on a guy like Patterson/Hunter. Or go defense and take an impact defensive guy like Short and take one of the other WR's like Swope/Rodgers in the 2nd rd.

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

I guess AJ's words carry some weight in Gary's world.

Wow vikings swap four picks for one to get Patterson after we take Hopkins. Measuring stick?

It all depends on who's opinion you're looking at. Bruglar has him as the #1 WR overall, even better than Tavon Austin. Walterfootball and Mayock had him as the #3 behind Austin and Patterson.

But he fits what Kubiak wants and I think he'll be a good fit in this offense.

Out side of Keenan Allen, who has injury concerns, he's the most step in and contribute ready WRs in the draft.

Default Re: 1st Round- DeAndre Hopkins WR Texans

THIS is the guy I wanted, even above Tavon Austin (whom I think compares more to Reggie Bush than as a real "WR").

Really happy to see us just settle in and take a guy who many consider to be one of the top WRs in this year's draft. We didn't grab a project defensive guy, we didn't go after a tier 2 TE, we just zeroed in on a solid playmaking WR.

Hopefully his ability to get separation and off the jam at the LOS will help Schaub who really needs to just get rid of the ball faster than he used to be inclined to do pre-Lisfranc injury. AJ and Hopkins, then Martin in the slot.

They say he compares to Reggie Wayne, but he looks more like Larry Fitzgerald to me when I watch him play. He has a quicker off-the-snap move than Wayne, IMO. And his breaks on the ball are really sharp and aggressive.

VERY happy with this pick.

Well, I read up on it and everything points to Hopkins.
http://espn.go.com/nfl/draft2013/sto...ne-sources-say
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.

Disagree completely. Patterson looks like a bust waiting to happen, IMO. Mayock is not that sold on him, saying he lacks a lot of maturity. He also doesn't seem to have that great of a motor out there. Almost like a Randy Moss in Randy's latter years.

Justin Hunter, IMO, is a project pick with a high ceiling (I like him BETTER than Patterson) but look, we tried to draft a high ceiling guy like Hunter. His name was Jacoby Jones. Both guys began their football careers as skinny kids and Mayock is concerned Hunter will not add more to his frame. Sure, he's 6'4" but Mayock is concerned about his softness over the middle. Plus, he has a focus problem on some passes. Unsure hands.

I don't think outside of Tavon Austin we could have picked a better Round 1 WR than Hopkins. Watch his highlights and then watch Allen, Austin, Patterson and Hunter highlights. To me, there's a visible difference in the way those guys are playing compared to Hopkins. Eyes don't lie, Hopkins LOOKS better.

No homer here, either. It remains to be seen if Schaub will be able to utilize the guy (I thought he'd be able to gel with Keyshawn Martin, and that turned to mush--though I know it was more Martin than Schaub, but still...). All in all, I think we got the guy we wanted. Kubiak knows offense. Phillips knows defense. So I'm good with this pick and hope he grades out the way others have him projected right now.

Wasn't a reach, wasn't a project pick. And THAT is worth a lot. To me.

FIFY .... Its Rick's job to fill out the roster.

They needed a playmaker ... I probably would have taken Hopkins had he been available in the TT Mock , he went 1 pick ahead of my selection.

I wonder if they take a shot at another WR between now and the 4th.

To be honest if this guy is boldin esque then its the best thing for us cause he has to go get schaubs inaccurate throws. Which is crappy when you think about it. I just couldn't believe we had our pick of the WR class and we went this way. Posey and martin last year don't help the confidence in the FO decisions on WRs. Well one hole filled.

The WR situation should look good going into the playoff run, if Posey is able to make it back by mid season.

I can understand if you prefer one of the other WRs that were on the board, but IMO, you might not know enough about Hopkins if you're disappointed with the pick.
