Wanted him since I saw him play in high school. Not in the first round though. Need an OL there.

When was the last time Clemson put out a quality player? Brian Dawkins?

Dumb comment

True comment.

There are scouts who have publicly said they shy away from Clemson recruits because they're overhyped out of school and don't pan out in the NFL.

Don't want. Taking a Clemson WR is like the Panthers taking a USC WR.

Only an acc homer would poo poo the idea of poo pooing the idea of drafting them.

There's a lot you can do in the acc that you can't in the NFL because of competition. Wouldn't touch either in the first round.

Don't be the idiot.

If he's somehow available at #46, it would be criminal to pass him up.

Warmack/Hopkins in the first two rounds would be amazing. I'd even be willing to entertain the idea of Hopkins in the 1st (if he kills it at the Senior Bowl and Combine to raise up as the #1 or #2 WR in the draft) and Kyle Long in the 2nd. I think that a lot of folks in Clemson overlooked Hopkins in favor of Watkins, when Hopkins has continued to make plays throughout.

I'd take him without hesitation. He would come in and instantly be an improvement over every WR on our roster not named Steve Smith.

He's drawing comparisons to Roddy White and Hakeem Nicks. Mainly people looking at the height/weight/hands combo.

White 6'0 211

Nicks 6'1 208

Hopkins 6'1 200

Keep in mind that's his listed weight. Clemson could very well be exaggerating it. It's very important he clocks in at that at least.

Like those two guys, it may take him a while to get up to the pro game, but when he does, he has just absolutely extraordinary potential. I adore the way he robs the ball out of the air when he catches; he's got tremendous hands.

I want to see more of him, and I'll admit there is just something about him I can't put my finger on that I'm nervous about, but he has uber potential, he just needs some refining in the teachable parts.

Like his attitude, too.
