    If somebody else has started a thread like this we can lump them together but i have to respond to what i think is the absolute retarded lunacy of drafting a WR with the 10th pick.

    Either Deandre Hopkins or Justin hunter will likely be there at 39. They are excellent prospects!

    I'm falling in love with the idea of Hopkins being a titan. I watched his game against LSU where he had 13 catches for almost 200 yards. LSU could not stop him!

    I watched how he played well against Florida St. This is a big game WR!

    Hopkins is very much like Hakeem Nicks. He runs routes better than any WR in this draft. He has a big physical body and he gets the ball. He doesn't have great timed speed but he beats people deep. He is a great prospect who played his best football against the best teams.

    Not familiar with Hopkins but I echo the idea of not taking a WR at 10.

    Ace Sanders, Marcus Wheaton, a third or beyond. Probably not a second.

    Hunter wont make it till the 39 pick,i I do like hopkins or woods in the 2nd.
    I think its more likely we use 1 od our 2 3rd rd picks on a wr, a few i like
    include Quinton Patton wr latech went to lavergne hs in tn,over 100 catches & 1500 yds
    good size & speed & great hands.I like wheaton & swope sice he ran a 4.4 at the combine.
    S Baily of wva n& T King of ga should also go in rd 3.I WANT PATTON A LOCAL KID BEING A HOMER .

    I'd be fine with Hopkins, but...

    I really like these guys.

    I really like Quinton Patton and Justin Hunter. Hopkins is a good player as well.

    I watched a few Clemson games last year and some people actually thought Hopkins is a better future prospect than Sammy Watkins, which is saying a lot. I don't think he is a better future prospect than Watkins, but he isn't too far behind him.

    So I would think there is huge value in him at pick #39.

    If we release Nate I could see us going this route.

    I don't know anything about Hopkins.

    Who's that other Clemson WR? Sammy Watkins?

    Is he entering the draft next year?
