Texans selected Clemson WR DeAndre Hopkins with the No. 27 overall pick.
After 10 years, the Texans finally have a legitimate No. 2 receiver opposite Andre Johnson. Hopkins (6-1, 214) overtook ballyhooed sophomore Sammy Watkins to be Tajh Boyd's top target in Clemson's 2012 offense, pacing the Tigers in receptions (82), yards (1,405) and scores (18). He averaged 17.1 yards per catch. Although he lacks elite speed (4.57 forty), Hopkins is a pro-ready route runner with big (10"), reliable hands. His playing style is (very) similar to Roddy White's. Like Cal's Keenan Allen, Hopkins is a classic "Z" receiver who should flourish on the strong side of the formation and in the slot. Thu, Apr 25, 2013 11:11:00 PM

Clemson WR DeAndre Hopkins is working out for the Rams on Monday.

Head coach Jeff Fisher will attend the workout. This means Hopkins has met with the Rams twice in the last four days, making for an interesting development. The team did something similar with Brian Quick last year and ended up selecting the receiver at no. 33 after a last minute workout. We think the rams will decide between Tavon Austin and Hopkins.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports one trashed hotel room at the combine belonged to Clemson WR DeAndre Hopkins and Rutgers WR Mark Harrison.

A second report by Fox Sports' Alex Marvez says that Hopkins left the room "several hours" before it was destroyed, potentially leaving Harrison as the only player in question. The room was reportedly trashed with food, urine, feces and toothpaste. It's uncertain how it will affect the two players' stock.

Clemson WR DeAndre Hopkins is visiting the Panthers on Monday.

Hopkins had previously participated in a private workout with the Panthers receivers coach Ricky Proehl. Beat writer Steve Reed suggests Hopkins as a possible pick at No. 14, but the Panthers have certainly done their homework on plenty of receivers. His game is very reminiscent of Roddy White.

Texans beat writer John McClain is "convinced" the team will take a WR int he first-round.

McClain recently mocked Clemson WR DeAndre Hopkins to the Texans at pick No. 27. Fellow Houston sports staple Barry Warner says the Texans "won't take" a receiver int he first round, and instead will target an offensive lineman, inside linebacker, or pass rusher. So basically, no one knows what will happen.

Clemson WR DeAndre Hopkins visited the Cowboys on Tuesday.

It is an interesting connection, since interior offensive linemen, safeties, and defensive tackles are frequently mocked to the Cowboys. The team certainly has talent at the receiver position, namely Dez Bryant, Miles Austin, and young slot receivers in Danny Coale and Cole Beasley. Austin, however, has struggled to stay healthy, and Hopkins is an extremely consistent and reliable target in the mold of Roddy White.

Clemson WR DeAndre Hopkins did not make ESPN's Mel Kiper's top five players at the position.

Kiper's rankings at the position go as follows: Tavon Austin, Cordarrelle Patterson, Justin Hunter, Keenan Allen, and Quinton Patton. We think Hopkins has an excellent shot at being a first-round pick due to his consistency and strong hands at the catch point. His unassuming style is similar to Roddy White's.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen expects the Houston Texans to add "a WR or two" through the draft.

"Somebody that can run and run fast," Mortensen said, while also adding that it is the team's "highest priority." The Texans added DeVier Posey and Keshawn Martin last season, but neither are top end talents. DeAndre Hopkins could be a great fit at the end of the first round.

Clemson's DeAndre Hopkins is top ranked WR on CBS Sports draft writer Dane Brugler's big board.

Hopkins ranks as the No. 17 overall prospect. "While not the biggest or fastest, Hopkins is able to win and be productive with his ability to change gears in his routes, create space and attack the ball in the air," Brugler writes. The Clemson product is shortly followed by Cordarrelle Patterson and Tavon Austin.

Clemson WR DeAndre Hopkins will reportedly work out for Panthers WR coach Ricky Proehl on Monday.

It is an interesting development, since Proehl will also put Cal's Keenan Allen through his pro day workout on April 9. We'd be surprised if the Panthers select a receiver with the 14th pick, but many media members have consistently listed the position among the team's top needs.

Clemson WR DeAndre Hopkins clocked in with an official 4.57 forty at the NFL Combine.

Hopkins's game is very similar to Roddy White in that he wins with technical precision and separation, so don't be alarmed if his forty doesn't match up with the other Combine participants. We think the Clemson receiver is a first-round talent.

Clemson WR's coach Jeff Scott said WR DeAndre Hopkins still has room to grow physically.

"He has not physically reached his ceiling yet," Scott said. "He still has two more years of physical development in the weight room before he reaches his ceiling. As far as the ball skills and being able to go out and play, I have no doubt that he has the ability." Scott believes his potential makes him a "steal" in the draft.

TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline says Clemson WR DeAndre Hopkins "won’t be graded as a first round pick".

Hopkins will be held back by the unlikelihood of him breaking the "4.5-second barrier on Sunday," writes Pauline. Despite his lack of timed speed, Hopkins has very good hands and an underrated burst that will make teams happy on Sundays. He reminds us of Roddy White.

NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah believes Clemson WR DeAndre Hopkins is a "very instinctive" player.

"Too many cookie-cutter route runners in spread offenses... he is more natural, sets up defenders," Jeremiah tweeted. Hopkins consistently reminds us of Roddy White, and his best attribute is a willingness to go up and get the football at its highest point.

Clemson WR DeAndre Hopkins is among the five Combine participants Bucky Brooks expects to perform well in Indianapolis.

The other four include: Texas WR Marquise Goodwin, SMU DL Margus Hunt, BYU DL Ezekiel Ansah, and LSU DE/OLB Barkevious Mingo. Hopkins wins with separation and a willingness to go up and get catches at their highest point, so a display of great athleticism would only be more impressive.
