DeAndre Hopkins will be one of the top receivers in the NFL Draft. He’s a deep threat with great verticle speed. He runs good routes; is capable of making double moves; has good burst out of his moves to create separation; and has developed good hands after being a basket catcher at one point in his career.
He needs to develop strength; maintain his focus; move to the ball instead of waiting for it; learn to run a full route tree; and refine his route running. His college career suggests that he can be coached up as he improved each year. He has yet to tap his full potential and he could be as good as or better than any receiver taken before him.
If he’s not drafted in the first round of the NFL Draft he should be gone early in the second. In dynasty drafts he’s a first round pick. In redraft leagues destination will determine value but he should step in and make an impact from the beginning. If he doesn’t start from Day One he should be able to work his way into a starting role by mid season unless he lands on a team that is loaded.
