    DeAndre Hopkins at 12?

    If this kid declares, how do we not take him? 1400 yds receiving, 18 tds. That's pretty absurd for a short college season.

    Sign Wallace, Bowe or Jennings, then draft this kid in addition to hartline, Bess, and Matthews. We'd have a pretty solid corps.

    He's great! Without him no way Clemson beats LSU. Is he fast enough?

    This draft is wayyyy too deep at WR to be reaching for Hopkins at 12. Get a defensive stud with the first round pick and maybe in round 2 you can take a guy like Robert Woods, who would be an ideal fit for this offense.

    Hes the best wr I have seen inn the bowl games so far and to get 180 yds and 2 td against a sec defense and a real good one at that and the #1 rated safety back there also...Hopkins earned his 1st rd grade..

    12? That's way too early.

    I'm thinking:
    1: this is the weakest we class in years, it's deep, but deep in mediocrity.

    2: Hopkins is young an a game changing wr. 12 might not be too early. And with this team only scoring 280 points this year, o is what we need

    Stedman Bailey is still being mocked as a 4th round WR . . . and that guy is an absolute stud. There may not be any AJ Greens or Megatrons . . . but I haven't seen a WR class this talented in overall depth . . . hell maybe never, we'll see how the declarations of underclassmen finish.

    Did you really call this WR class weak?

    Fact is, it doesn't seem like Joe Philbin's Modus Operandi to go after the "flashy" WR . . . He'd prefer the solid hands, solid route running, smart type of WR. Not saying Hopkins doesn't present that, but at 12 I think WR is pretty much off the table IMO. Obvioulsy that can change depending how FA goes.
