walterfootball is mocking him to us in the 2nd. this would be huge i feel.
dude has size, speed, and strength.

last year he was absolutely ridiculous. could be a steal, i find him WAY better than tevon austin or keenan allen. number 2 WR this draft.

I would love it.
I'm really feeling Richardson or Vaccaro in round 1 and Woods or Hopkins in round 2.

I would be fine with him in the 2nd. I think he has that #1 potential in a couple of years.

I've read some comparisons to Reggie Wayne and Roddy White. Doesn't run away from anyone but has great hands and body control. To see what he did vs LSU in the bowl game, they just kept going to him in big spots (4th and 16!)... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCVWGxNjF_k

Just hope he makes it to us in the 2nd.

I like that he doesn't use his body to catch the ball unless it's necessary.

I'll sacrifice a little speed/athleticism for a more polished receiver like Hopkins. He also plays bigger than his size when the ball is in the air.

I really like this part about him:

2010: 52 rec, 637 yards, 4 TDs
2011: 72 rec, 978 yards, 5 TDs
2012: 82 rec, 1405 yards, 18 TDs


Consistent improvement should help transition his game to the NFL and make an impact sooner rather than in three years.

After seeing him play the past few seasons against USC I thought he was great along side Watkins (who we should look at for next years draft), good hands and route running abilities. To sum it up he looks ready for the NFL at this point

There is no way Deandre Hopkins is available to us in the 2nd round! He will be seleected in the first round!

Latest is that he is a head case. After his pro day, he supposedly blew off reporters and left in a group of "friends."

The article i read mentioned "diva".

Do not laugh, but I would take Ryan Swope over him in the second.

im fine with him being a head case if it lowers his stock. look at the top two head cases the last years that lowered players values, they for the most part pain out once they get to the NFL.

I have decided I want a DT, OT or WR in round 1.
Round 2, give me a safety. Cyprien, Elam, or Swearinger.

No way we have bigger needs in the secondary now

The difference between the bolded positions in round 2 is larger than that of S. Cyprien, Elam, and Swearinger are all talented.

Cyprien will be gone, Elam and Swearinger could be gone. I'd say we're better off settling with a receiver in the 2nd. Stedman Bailey, Terrance Williams, Robert Woods, Aaron Dobson, and Quinton Patton would be the guys to look at there.

Agree with this, we should look to secondary in the first, if no one is there we like BPA

No WR until we sign a DT, FS, then CB then a WR in that order.
