    Affleck before Damon?
    Leno before Letterman?
    Mick before Keith?
    Brittney before Christina?

    carry on.

    Affleck way better then Damon. Same with Leno. Keith Richards would kick Micks arse. Christina because she looks like Cindy Lauper. That is all

    Just seems to me to be one of those guys that astronomically shot up the board because of his combine times.

    Not saying he's not going to be a player, but was he a top 10 - 15 pick before the combine?

    I'd take Hopkins over Austin and Patterson in a heartbeat. Probably the most polished receiver in the draft and can make an impact from day 1.

    Someone is going to overdraft the hell out of Austin and Patterson. Just hope it isn't us.

    I actually think some of the buzz with Patterson is starting to fade. As more and more scouts watch his tape they are realizing he far from a polished WR worthy of a top 10 pick, and rightfully so.

    Patterson and Ansah are the two biggest "boom or bust" prospects in this draft IMO.

    I really don't see any middle ground. Either they turn out to be stars, or they're out of the league in 3 or 4 years.

    Patterson could end up like a Ted Ginn though, more of a return specialist and hang around the league a little longer.

    Hopkins reminds me of Anquan Boldin. Same size, Hopkins looks like he's a deceptively physical guy with great hands--not the speediest guy, but pretty polished. I don't like Boldin's whole persona, but he's the toughest guy on the field and Hopkins has some of that in him.

    Patterson scares me a little bit.

    Austin would look great as a Jet--a super speedy playmaker--but he's just too small and I can't take him in the first 2 rounds and someone is taking him in the first.

    I have watched pretty much every snap Hopkins has taken in his career at Clemson. He is tough, maybe not as physical as Boldin, but he goes up to get the ball as good as anyone. He and Boyd practically beat LSU by themselves. Plus, he is a GREAT kid. I met him last summer before they started camp and he couldnt have been nicer to my son and myself.

    Yeah, I don't think he's as tough as Boldin--no one is, but he's certainly tougher than Wayne who he's been compared to. He just looks like a guy that goes up and gets every ball and breaks tackles.

    Don't you love watching these guys grow up?

    Same for me with Nassib--seen just about every snap. Not sure he's a franchise guy but if we draft him I'll be his biggest fan.

    Yea, I remember when they recruited Hopkins in High School. He was productive from day one. Watkins stole some of his thunder in 2011 but last year Hopkins really showed that he was really the superior WR in that offense.

    If Hopkins ever becomes a Jet, I know my son will go crazy and I will be buying his jersey for him without a doubt.

    I think we're cooked in that respect. Just like I said a month ago, soon teams will begin to do their homework -- suddenly hopkins becomes in discussion a viable first round pick. He's not gonna last till #39.... NOW if the Jets went Star @9 and Hopkins @ 13.... that's be... interesting.

    Wouldn't surprise me if he's the first WR off the board. Austin's undersized and he's a media darling right now, Patterson is flat out a project, and Allen's knee has been concerningly slow to recover.

    Hopkins
    Allen
    Woods
    Patterson
    Austin

    I agree, I told my son to not to get his hopes up. He loves Ellington as well, so maybe there is hope for him.

    I think pretty much everyone already expects Joeckel, Fisher and Johnson to go before Warmack and Cooper.

    +1
    Absolutely. With the lack of QB's and skill position players that lack that wow factor of an early 1st rounder, I think those tackles are gonna go quick and go early
