I know it sounds far fetched to most huddlers... but after a first workout with Ricky Proehl a few weeks ago and another visit scheduled for today, I am starting to believe that he is a potential target for the Panthers at #14 and not just in case he slides to us at #44.

He may not have the physical attributes of most elite WR's, but after following Nuke for his entire career at Clemson, I believe he has the work ethic and intangibles to be the heir apparent to Smitty if we do decide to pull the trigger.

Thoughts?..

Hopkins could be a potential long-term replacement for Steve Smith if they pull the trigger on him at No. 14.

I would be okay with him, im just drooling to have 2 dynamic receivers on the field for a change. Its long over due.

I'm okay with him too. Wouldn't love him at 14 bc might seem a lil of a reach, but he could be that touch down guy.

Dude took over against LSU. I'd say he is #1 worthy. His performance against LSU is more impressive than Tavon against Choklahoma, because we all know they have never played defense. Ever.

Hopkins (14), Cypyien/Elam/Reid (44), and a vet DT would KILL IT!!!

I like Hopkins. Not at 14 though. Once again, I think Gettleman's *ideal* scenario is to move down and take a WR. Ideal.

I think this is part of covering the bases for such a move.

Agree.

If we trade down and got him and Cyprien I would be ecstatic

Austin tore up a better LSU team in 2011.

Lemme clarify, my comment has nothing to do with "reaching" as that's become a mostly outdated term. It has to do with the fact I wouldn't prefer Hopkins at 14 over an Allen or a Patterson. Id rather pull the trigger on the best receiver prospect we could get at 14 than try to squeeze as much out of the draft as we could, truth be told, and am not sure how I'd feel about the move mentioned above.

If we can go into training camp with a top-tier rookie receiver, a safety, a guard, and a defensive tackle added to the roster in one form or another we'll be looking pretty nice

14 seems high but if we trade down to the mid 20's Hopkins would be a great pick there.

Hopkins or Hunter are the ones I want on the team.
