DeAndre Hopkins

32 posts in this topic

is he worthy of the 14th pick?

Hell yes! The more I watch, the more I become convinced that he is the best WR in this class.

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

If we're talking putting together the stat sheets, the actual tape, and the potential to translate in the NFL, I'd say Terrance Williams, DeAndre Hopkins, & Quinton Patton would be the most appealing from my perspective. But a lot more goes into the equation.

His tape matches his production. Great hands getting open with good route running more then athletic ability. Being a go to number 1 wr. It all shows in the tape and production.

I agree. I mean, if we're looking at Hopkins, Allen, Patterson, & Austin in the 1st, then proceed to bring them all in and take a good look, I think DeAndre has a good chance of coming out the favorite.

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.

    • I believe I need to address something that a lot of us don't get on this forum.  The past is the past. People come and go. There have been good times, and bad. Everything changes at some point. However, as we embark this offseason, I challenge everyone to say goodbye. What has happened in the past is now the past. Nothing we do changes that. Many here are stuck in this mode that we're in 2016. Some even go as far as saying we're back tracking to 2015. We can relish those memories and scorn the bad, but the fact is this is 2017. We are not the 2015 Panthers, the 2016 Panthers, or the 2011 Panthers. We are entering a new stage in Panthers history. 2017 will be nothing like any team of years past. Coaches and players alike will learn from past mistakes and attempt to fix it. New guys will come in and add new wrinkles to our game. New fans will come in to add their flair. I challenge everyone to not fallback into the past. Don't hold on to things that will never change. Look to the future. Say goodbye.  Fall Forward.
