Reports that he trashed his hotel room in a most unsanitary manner at the NFL combine earlier this year did not cost former Clemson University wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins after all …

The speedy wideout – who holds the Tigers’ career receiving yardage (3,009) and touchdown reception records (27) – was selected in the first round of this week’s NFL draft by the Houston Texans.

After spending the 2011 season in the shadow of freshman All-American Sammy Watkins, Hopkins exploded in 2012 – catching 82 passes for 1,405 yards and eighteen touchdowns (all career highs). Those eighteen TDs also set a new Atlantic Coast Conference record.

Viewed by draft analysts as one of the best routerunners in the incoming class, Hopkins is expected to compete for playing time right away in Houston opposite six-time Pro Bowler Andre Johnson.

He also says he hopes to learn from Johnson.

“He is a guy I’ve looked up to since he’s been in the league,” Hopkins told The Houston Chronicle.

The Texans have shown improvement in recent years under eighth-year head coach Gary Kubiak. The team has won back-to-back AFC South championships and advanced to the AFC divisional round in the playoffs in each of the last two years.

FITS, like the true NO-TALENT he is…drops the ball again…

THE STORY HERE IS: Dabo Bashed this kid. Saying he was not good enough. Dabo looks like a Gigantic IDIOT today.

FITS simply follows the template of the punch-drunk sports media in SC…and gives us the dry, non-creative (pedestrian) account of this…w/ a hint of cliché-scandal by talking about the hotel room mess.

In other words: FITS uses it as an opportunity to gush all over Hopkins. who I said all along IS THE BIGGEST factor in Clemson’s offensive success. What are they going to do w/o him, and left depending on a caught drug-user, lawbreaker in the WR corps?
That’s another REAL story, that Clemson, or FITS, would rather not talk about…

My Momma told me when I wuz a young boy that if I couldn’t say something good about a person then say nothing at all.

Nothing at all, BigT. Nothing at all.

Huh. After the hotel incident I would’ve tabbed him to get picked by the Browns.

Houston is a run first-team. Hopkins will be criminally underutilized in their scheme.

From: AP, January 12, 2013:

Tiger head coach Dabo Swinney thought Hopkins, who received a second-round grade from
NFL draft advisors, could’ve used another year in college to develop.

“I think it’s going to be tough” for Hopkins to crack the first or second round of
April’s draft, Swinney said.
