    Is Nuk one of a kind? His ball skills remind of Randy Moss or Lynn Swann, but without the same high end speed. Maybe, an AJ Green.

    Thoughts?

    This one is easy for me, I always compared his game to Larry Fitzgerald.

    I think you are looking at hair style. I see more Moss than Fitzgerald but to be honest Hopkins is just Hopkins.

    I don't remember Lynn Swann being all that fast... He was just a leaper with great body control, so that's not a horrible comparison.

    Nuk reminds me of Boldin. He just gets it done.

    The Texans have never had the QB on the field, in a regular season game, that would make Swann a HoF'er. It takes large huevos to put the ball up in the places Bradshaw did, in the coverages he did.

    With his body control and ability to high point the ball he reminds me of a less speedy A.J. Green. Not quite as physically imposing as Firzgerald but if goes up he is coming down with it.

    I remember I was trying to decide between Cordarelle Patterson and DeAndre Hopkins as my 1st round mock draft picks. ICak and I got into it a little bit and he mentioned Reggie Wayne as a bit of a comparison to Hopkins, and that seems clearer than ever to me now having seen him play.

    Are you implying that Chad Johnson wasn't good...or just making a distinction between the "good" and "bad" Chad Johnson?

    In reference to the OP, I'd say watching him play brings to mind Torry Holt, to be honest.

    im implying the good chad johnson. i.e. when the chad was firing he was very hard to stop. physically they possess similar attributes and there ability to locate and get the ball anyway in their vicinity is very similar

    I'd say the good Chad Johnson, Anquan Boldin, and Reggie Wayne comparisons are probably the best so far.

    I can see why the OP brought up Moss' ball skills, especially since from what Hopkins showed last game, but personally Moss' still has the superior skills and thus not a fair comparison. And even though you didn't bring up Moss' other attributes, it's tough to compare the two without bringing up Moss' height and speed.

    Chuck Norris - because Nuk doesn't catch the football, the football flys to Nuk and rests gently in his hands.

    Actauly a lot of those throws were pretty safe as they were along the sideline and high, either swann was going to come down with it or no one was. Seeing the limted time that we've seen between Hopkins and Schaub so far it already looks like he has more trust in Hopkins to make those types of catches. The guy almost never threw the fade to Andre.
