BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors after his sophomore and junior seasons. Senior-year totals included 27/247/2 after 54/565/7 the previous season.
POSITIVES: Nice-sized pass-catching tight end coming off a disappointing season. Quickly gets off the snap into routes, uses his frame to shield away opponents, and adjusts to the errant throw. Makes the reception in stride. Comes back to the ball, making himself an available target. Solid position blocker who shows explosion at the point.
NEGATIVES: Marginally strong and does not get much movement run-blocking. Does a lot of clutching and grabbing in pass protection. Lacks speed and the ability to make plays in the secondary.
ANALYSIS: Hopkins has previously shown himself to be a productive pass-catcher, yet he is a marginal athlete with limited upside at the next level.
