Hopkins might not be the biggest or fastest wide receiver but he seems to have a knack for getting open and making the tough catch. I am wondering why he isn't getting more attention as a legitimate prospect? Keenan Allen, Justin Hunter, Robert Woods, and to a much lesser extent Terrance Williams seem to be getting the most attention.

Could Hopkins be one of those players that doesn't necessarily wow with his measurables but knows what it takes to get open and move the chains at the next level and ends up having a stronger career than some more physically talented prospects?

One of those guy that just gets it done on the field. But I wouldn't put him in the first round category. Probably more of a late 2nd(at best)-3rd round type player. Will be interesting to see how he runs when he declares...

Looks like a decent number 2 prospect and should be drafted as such.

Solid 2nd rounder. Great routes, decent explosion off the plant, reliable hands. More quick than fast, and isn't gonna overwhelm with size or strength.

Pretty good WR class overall.

Hunter
Patterson
Woods
Allen
Dobson
Austin
T. Williams
Hopkins
Davis

Should all be first/second rounders.

Hopkins could very well go at the end of the first round...I could see Houston drafting him.

I think he'll be the 5th WR off the board after Allen, Woods, Williams, and Hunter (in no order)

No way he goes in the 3rd round. No way.

I think you're underestimating the talent in this draft. And that's not saying anything bad about Hopkins, it's just that if a lot of the guys that are expected to declare...do...then there are going to be quite a bit of very athletic big WRs with extremely high ceilings. A guy like Hopkins, even if it's unfairly, tends to lose ground on those type of guys in the draft process.

But I think he's a solid Round 2 pick right now.

What about Kendall Wright going in round 1? He didn't light up offseason workouts but scouts saw that he knew how to get open and make a play after the catch.

Kendall Wright didn't have the competition that Hopkins probably will plus teams were stupidly low on Alshon Jeffery.

Here are my WR rankings
Justin Hunter
Keenan Allen
Robert Woods
DeAnthony Hopkins
Ryan Swope
Terrance Williams
Coradelle Patterson
Aaron Dobson
Kenny Stills
Marquess Wilson

All of these WR have a case to be a 1st round WR and in any order you take them you will be happy with what transpires. It is so deep though that a WR like Hopkins or Wilson could fall into the 2nd round.

Is this the deepest class of WR ever? All of these players are potential game changers. I have Corradelle Patterson on my rising list, the only one of the WR listed that I am not sold on is Wilson

I love him. He has solid athleticism and can catch anything. He is my #3 WR after Terrance Williams and Da'Rick Rogers(if his character isn't THAT bad.) I think he could make an appearance at the end of the 1st round.

Hopkins is like 6ft, Rice like 6'4. Laughing

I've seen Hopkins play several times this year and the guy never ceases to amaze me. He's my top WR in this class, if he declares. I don't care what his 40 time is, the kid has a knack for getting open and making big plays. I have him narrowly ahead of Terrance Williams for the top WR position.
