DeAndre Hopkins wows on Sunday

Posted Aug 3, 2014

DeAndre Hopkins is turning in another excellent training camp.

As he did last July and August, DeAndre Hopkins has shown flashes of greatness. Practice after training camp practice featured the then-first rounder skying for a touchdown, winning a jump ball with a defensive back, or a toe-tapping big gain.

Much of the same has gone on for the first week of work in a new offense. But in 2014, there's something different about the young pass catcher.

“He’s definitely comfortable," wide receiver Andre Johnson said. "He’s playing with a lot of confidence and I think that’s been the biggest thing. So he definitely looks comfortable and that’s something you want to see him continually build on."

Hopkins had the quietest 802-yard receiving season in 2013, as the team's 14 losses swallowed up what was a good rookie campaign. Two of his 52 catches were touchdowns last year, and he averaged 15.4 yards a reception. With a new offense, a year as a professional under his belt and the confidence Johnson referenced, bigger things might be in store. But Hopkins hasn't changed his mental approach.

“I have the same mentality that I had last year," Hopkins said. "I put last year behind me. I’m just coming out here with a new focus and just trying to be the best player I can be."

Hopkins made the play of the day on a long touchdown catch up the right sideline Sunday, energizing the first-team offense and wowing fans in the process.

"The plays he was making out there were awesome," Johnson said. "It’s great to see and I just keep telling him—I keep saying do what you’re doing. Don’t be satisfied with it."

Hopkins' aggressiveness in going after a ball, and in always wanting the ball has jumped out at quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.

“DeAndre has done a great job," Fitzpatrick said. "He works hard, comes every day. He wants to win. Obviously a guy that wants the ball thrown to him. If you’re a guy who wants the ball thrown to you, I’ll throw to you."

Hopkins and the Texans will practice again on Monday and Tuesday. On Wednesday the team will have a day off.
