Texans sign 1st-rounder DeAndre Hopkins

Posted Jul 22, 2013

The Houston Texans signed first-round draft pick DeAndre Hopkins on Monday, and also announced a few other roster moves.

The Houston Texans have signed first-round draft pick WR DeAndre Hopkins, the team announced today. Seven of Houston’s nine draft picks are now under contract. 

Hopkins (6-1, 207), who entered the draft following his junior season at Clemson, was the 27th overall pick in the draft. A third-team All-American in 2012, Hopkins caught 82 passes and set school records with 1,405 receiving yards and 18 touchdown receptions. He was a unanimous first-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection and Belitnikoff Award semi-finalist after averaging 108.1 yards receiving per game. He scored in each of his last 10 collegiate games.

For his collegiate career, Hopkins totaled 206 receptions for 3,020 yards and 27 touchdown receptions. He is the sixth player in ACC history with more than 3,000 receiving yards and the only player in conference history to eclipse the mark in just three seasons. Hopkins earned All-America honorable mention as a sophomore with 72 receptions for 978 yards and five touchdowns. He set Clemson freshman records and earned Freshman All-ACC recognition with 52 receptions for 637 yards and four touchdowns in 2010.
