With the 27th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Texans select Clemson WR DeAndre Hopkins.
Hopkins’ athleticism and ability to catch the ball will make him a very dangerous receiver in the NFL. He has solid route running skills, uses the head fake and his footwork nicely giving him enough separation from the defender to give himself space for the QB to get him the ball.
While he won’t be a guy that will beat you deep and create a lot of separation from the DB’s, he will be a guy that will make the tough catches in traffic and will take the ball away from the defender on poorly thrown balls with his strong hands.
After making the catch he shows the awareness of where he is on the field and where the defenders are on the field and knows where he wants to go as soon as he makes the grab
