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.

    • This is a huge cop out and it says that the only way to save our beloved means of governing is to bail out of the system and then have a revolution and start over again. You fix the system by casting knowledgeable votes in every frikkin' election. Every election. Local, state and federal. The situation is screwed right now because frikkin' lazy voters don't take the time to learn anything about their local candidates, or their state ones (here in NC that really bit us in the ass, didn't it?). Those elections lead to the ones above them AND frikkin help decide who will be taking part in primaries and even putting in the votes for the electoral college. An educated and willing electorate also tears the crap out of big money donors and tends to churn the political offices for the good of all. But no, a bunch of folks just drag themselves out of their cocoons to cast a vote for the president and maybe check off a box or two of people whose names sound familiar every four years. And then we've got the whiniest and most self righteous of the bunch, like you, who say that votes don't matter and they aren't going to get involved in the whole corrupt system. They march around smug and whining, putting on airs of intellectual superiority while complaining about every frikkin thing under the sun. Get up, learn your candidates and start voting local and up. All politics is local. ALL POLITICS IS LOCAL. Your town council or Board of Education or County Commission matters. Your State senators and representatives matter. BIG FRIKKIN TIME HERE. Doing this is how you really start reforming the system. This is how you start beating back the machinery in place that goes and grabs people by the busload and brings them to the polls to elect idiots and thieves. And then, maybe, just maybe, you run for office or volunteer some time to work for a candidate you believe in. You attend meetings and voice your opinions and hold politicians accountable, those in your own backyard first. And buy a frikkin' newspaper once in a while or buy an ad in one. No matter what crap the politicos try to tell you, those guys and gals scribbling notes at government meetings and then getting ink stains from printing the stories are your first line of defense and your best teachers. But stop acting all superior about not voting. Really, be a responsible adult. You have to work for it. Our republic doesn't have a reset button like your Xbox.
    • Steve Smith. Receiver, actually. No worries though.
    • With CJ's back issues I'm not even sure how good I feel this year.  If he's a full go and we do go DE at 8 on paper it's top front 7 of all time worthy.
