Found April 25, 2013 on State of the Texans:
With the 27th Overall Pick The Houston Texans in the 2013 NFL draft have selected DeAndre Hopkins from Clemson University. The Texans have added one of the most complete wide receivers in the draft, and during his senior season Hopkins posted 82 receptions for 1,404 yards and 18 touchdowns. In three, seasons at Death Valley he had 27 total touchdowns, and showed he can create as a wide receiver many ways. He can play across the middle or go over the top of defenses.   Analysis: The Texans have finally added that elusive wide receiver that the team has needed for some time. Hopkins will get every opportunity to win the opening day spot and this is finally a day where the Texans filled one of their biggest needs the past seasons. Hopkins gives the Texans an immediate threat and another weapon for an aging offense, and will give the team a wide receiver for the future.   Tale of the Tape Height: 6-1 Weight: 214 lbs 40 yard dash: 4.57 seconds Hometown:Central, South Carolina Key Stats: 205 career catches (68 catches a season) 3,009 career receiver yards (1,003 average a season) 27 receiving touchdowns   Talented wideout who had outstanding hands and ball skills … had 206 receptions for 3,020 yards and 27 touchdowns, 12 punt returns for 82 yards, and two kickoff returns for 32 yards in 2,059 snaps over 39 games (32 starts) in his career … first in school history in receiving yards, first in receiving touchdowns, first in 100-yard receiving games (12), and second in receptions … became the second player in ACC history to total at least 50 receptions as both a freshman and sophomore … had at least one reception in each of his last 36 games, tied for the school record … only Tiger in history with multiple 100-yard receiving performances in bowl games; he had three; had 32 receptions for 403 yards and three touchdowns in three career bowl games … played basketball for the Tigers after the football season ended in 2010-11; he was a member of Clemson’s NCAA Tournament team, but did not travel to the tourney.    From his Clemson profile   NFL Draft Profile Clemson Profile
