    Crazy that DeAndre Hopkins is so underrated right now. Look for him to jump up draft board or surprise these experts come draft day. That guy is a first rounder.

    I agree completely, absolutely a 1st rounder and I'd have to problem if the Texans took him or Quinton Patton in the 1st round. Great hands, attacks the ball, great feet, strong, good size, and he's physical.

    5. Chance Warmack – best player on tape. Mayock said that Alabama guard Chance Warmack is the best player he’s seen on tape this year. He put Warmack, Texas A&M left tackle Luke Joeckel, Central Michigan offensive tackle Eric Fisher and North Carolina guard Jonathan Cooper as the four players who the Chiefs would be deciding between with the No. 1 overall pick.
    *********************************
    (1) Warmack may be his highest rated player in this Draft, but the Chiefs won't ge taking him #1 nor will anybody else. Tell me just one guard or center who was a top 5 pick in the Draft ? Ever ? So forget about even top 5, let alone #1.
    (2) Is WR Hopkins really that good ? I've never seen him play ?

    Hopkins is a playmaker, plain and simple. He's no megatron or Andre Johnson from what I have seen, but he's my favorite receiver in this draft by a long shot. I wouldn't expect him to run real fast. Maybe between 4.45 and 4.55, but he really goes after the ball when it is in the air and he has a tendency to beat his man. He's not slow by any means but don't expect a blazing time at the combine.

    Speaking of which, does anyone know what Hopkins real height is? I've seen him listed anywhere between 5'11" and 6'1". Don't know who or what to believe, but it could make a difference where he's drafted. And, if he is only 5'11" he better have more than 4.5 speed or he could drop to the 2nd round or later.

    You have to go back awhile, but in 1975 Ken Huff was drafted #3 overall by the Colts to play guard. A couple of years earlier, John Hannah was taken #4 by the Pats. It's not common and it won't happen this year. Unless it does.

    Dean Steinkuhler was an Outland award winning guard for Nebraska. But he was taken #2 overall by the Oilers in 1984 to play tackle.

    He looks about 6'1". The most common height I see is 6' and the most common weight I see is 200 lbs. We shall see once the combine gets going.

    Way, way back in the '70s the league barely knew what a forward pass was when compared to the pass-happy offenses of the modern NFL. Accordingly they didn't have to worry about protecting the QB in the pocket until the game started to go airborne, and then along came L.Taylor and OTs protecting the edge became much more valuable while interior Olineman (guards & centers) who were primarily run-blockers.
    The one interior Olineman I seem to recall getting really big bucks and big headlines was the free agency deal the Vikings pulled off to steal guard Steve Hutchinson from the Seahawks, and even that situation was 'bout 20 years ago.

    Ha ha ha! 20 years ago! It was in 2006 when the Vikes used a "poison pill" in the FA contract offered to Hutchinson that Seattle couldn't match. He played last season for the "tacks."

    Wow ! I really pulled those dates out of my azz ! Don't know where they came from, but big Steve was only 'bout 15 when he got that big FA deal with the Vikings, according to my numbers.
    Thanks for setting me straight there, Insideop.

    The highest off the top of my head was Mike Munchak #8 in 82. That said, if you draft a OG number one, he better be the second coming of Munchak, Steve Hutchinson, Larry Allen, Randall McDaniel, or Gene Upshaw.

    I agree, nobody drafts a G that highly in the first round unless they have plans on moving him to tackle. If Warmack fell that far to the Texans he'd certainly have to be close to the highest BPA at that spot for sure.

    The NT depth and the WR depth are both very very intriguing for this years draft. OLB, meh not so much, ILB has some decent looking guys, and Safety seems to have a lot of decent prospects. Also I like a lot of the OT's coming out too, but I have to say WR is definitely the most intriguing class to me in terms of what the Texans have a shot at getting.
