Did the other WR put up 83rec. 1,405 yards and 18td in 1 season? That kind of production opens eyes fast.

Some put up better stats then that and are going to be around in the 2nd round.

i really like hopkins and im starting to look at it like this, in this draft class is there really much difference between say the 14 and 22 pick? if you want hopkins in the 20's why not take him at 14 this class starts getting weak around 12

Contract size, extra picks. While I agree to a certain extent that due to the strength, or lack of it, of the class it doesn't make much difference talent wise between those two spots, it still makes sense to try and trade back if you think your guy is available later.

No at 14.

My head says yes with Hopkins but my heart says no. There's just something about him that doesn't feel right. Not a personality thing, but I just have a hard time seeing him becoming a dominant receiver.

I think everyone would like to trade back and gain the extra picks. IMO if we could trade back and still get Hopkins or Hunter that would be awesome. Hard fact is that everyone wants to trade back but you gotta have a partner. I agree with what the other poster said, if we can't trade back and we think both will be gone by our 2nd pick then I'm fine taking one at 14. I want one out of the Hunter, Hopkins, Patton, Williams group.

In my opinion, I really like Hopkins (Gamecock fan too). i think he is one of the best "ready to play" WRs in the draft, but his upside is not as high as a Patterson. Not sure he can be a true #1, but that is hard to gauge.

The Dwan Edwards pick was huge to me because it meant that we do not have to take a DT in the first round. It also means that a team below us who does need a DT might be trade bait. I see SF as a team who might be willing to deal. Hopkins will probably be there at 31.

I rank the WRs like this:

1. Coradelle Patterson (Raw)

2. Tavon Austin (who wants a 175 lb. slot WR at 14? not me)

3. DeAndre Hopkins

4. Keenan Allen

5. R. Woods (funny, not many talking about him,but Barkley's bad season should not overshadow his talent)

I think at the very least. you are getting a dominant number 2 WR in Hopkins.
