The Facts: Hopkins capped a spectacular 2015 season with a star turn in the Pro Bowl, hauling in a 7-yard touchdown following a 61-yard bomb. NFL Media analyst and Hall of Fame wideout Michael Irvin, Hopkins' coach on Team Irvin, was blown away by the former Clemson standout's performance in practice all week. "We don't know what the ceiling is," Irvin said. "You see the skill set, where he can catch footballs from anyplace in the world. There is no telling what the ceiling can be. He'll be rewriting a lot of records in the NFL."
Diehards Line:Hopkins is the first player ever to produce 100-yard receiving games with four different starting quarterbacks in the same season. Three of those four quarterbacks (Brandon Weeden, Ryan Mallett and T.J. Yates) were either cut by their original team or out of football at some point during the 2015 season. As NFL.com noted, Hopkins has emerged as the NFL's premier boundary receiver with a contortionist act on the sidelines and in the end zone, aided by huge, strong hands and physicality. It's his relentless effort and route running, however, that gained Seahawks CB Richard Sherman's respect. "He's a dog," Sherman said. "He goes after it every play. He brings it every play. Every down. He's a very unique talent. He's explosive in and out of his breaks. He puts his own flavor on his routes. It's a challenge." Now we'll have to see if the Texans can do anything about that QB situation this offseason.
