I really like Hopkins and not just because of last nights game. The guy can go up and get balls more than consistently, is tough, has great body positioning and is clutch and every time I have watched him he has been the same playmaker and go to guy even with Watkins in or out.

However, he needs to be paired up with a wr that is a major threat to go deep. Hopkins can go deep, but is better suited to be running short to intermediate and only running 2-3 deep routes a game.

Would love to see him in Carolina next to Smith, perhaps on the Bengals though they don't need him, or the Vikings. Hunter would have to be the pick for the Vikings though and for Carolina to take Hopkins they would have to rank him as a better fit than guys like KA, TW, and JH. Very much could be, but anything from 10-20 may be too high when you could get a similar player in Da'rick at that point in round two.

those two guys are ballers and will make some QB and team very happy.

Strong class. I'm a huge Keenan Allen fan, he's probably my number one. Tavon Austin will be lethal if used right. I'll probably post a ranking at some point when I'm not on my phone


That's my thought too. Yea, he's a slot but he's a slot who can make plays anywhere on the field for you. Can even be used on deep routes.

He's just scary to think about if utilized properly. Obviously though, his stock will depend a lot on his 40 time. But the guy runs the ball like Barry Sanders. His cuts, ability to make players miss and his ability to stop and start are truly unbelievable. He's going to give people fits especially if you isolate him.

I don't see Tavon as a slot WR. IDK why you want a tiny target working through all that traffic in the middle of the field. I'd have him there some but I would rather have him on the outside blowing the top off the D.

That would be a complete misuse of his skill-set. Tavon Austin is the type of player that you want to get the ball in his hands as much as possible especially in space. Using him as a vertical threat on the outside completely negates the strongest part of his skill-set.

I don't like needing to find ways to get a WR the ball. If a WR can't make plays within the offense you don't need them around. But I think Tavon can.

And I think Wes Welker's gimmick roll has created a false idea about what the ideal slot WR is. Anquan Boldin is the ideal slot guy.

The ideal slot guy is anyone who can get open and make plays out of the slot.

I don't like not using a player up to his full potential. You don't need to find ways to get him a ball, you just get him the ball when he's open. The point of the slot is to get him more looks, to get him in space more often and to give him chances to catch shorter passes and run.

Tavon is the ultimate mismatch in the slot.

Sure he is a mismatch. But with his size you gotta be pin point accurate throwing to him in the middle of the field. Barely any margin for error.

There's never any margin of error. But he's like the same height as Welker and not much shorter than Amendola and Bess. His height isn't an issue.

With his speed, quickness and ability to separate, I don't foresee it being a problem. Especially considering if you match-up a quicker than fast CB on him, he can burn him down the seam.
