2013: Houston Texans – DeAndre Hopkins

Drafting DeAndre Hopkins in 2013, the Texans shored up their receiving options.

The Clemson man was to come in and play alongside leading weapon Andre Johnson.

Hopkins was the second receiver taken that year, with the Rams taking Tavon Austin with the 8th pick.

A relatively quiet rookie year, Hopkins really broke out last season.

He surpassed 1200 receiving yards and finished with 6 touchdowns. Pro Football Focus graded him as the 12th best overall receiver of 2014.

With Andre Johnson now with the Indianapolis Colts, Hopkins will have an opportunity to become the number one receiver for the team.

The Texans are however expected to draft another wide threat early on in this years draft.

The Cowboys appear set at receiver with Dez Bryant franchise tagged, Terrance Williams a productive number two and last year saw Cole Beasley breakout as a favorite slot option for Tony Romo.

The team have lost special teams ace come wide receiver in Dwayne Harris who is now with the Giants.

They may well add a receiver late on, but at 27 it’s very unlikely.
