Griffin was on...

HOUSTON (AP) -- The Houston Texans have selected Clemson receiver DeAndre Hopkins with the 27th overall pick in the NFL draft.

He really didn't like the quarterback from Dallas Carter.
SI.com came up with what it is describing as the definitive list of movie quarterbacks, and it asked Houston Texans...
My locker is right next to AJ’s Juan…
The Texans have been looking for a WR to play opposite Andre Johnson for quite some time now and they may have found their guy in Hopkins. Granted, they did take Lester Jean and Keshawn Martin in last year’s draft, so Hopkins will have to catch on quick to get on the field. Already getting compared to the skill set of Johnson, he could...
With the 27th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Houston Texans selected Clemson wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.
In case the whole football thing doesn't work out for him it appears as if Houston Texans running back Arian Foster ha a fall back plan now--acting.
Apparently Foster is going to have a pretty big part in an upcoming Kevin Costner movie called Draft Day.
Foster has done a little bit of acting in the past in a Hawaii Five-O episode centered around the Pro Bowl. While...
