DeAndre Hopkins Named To PFWA All-Rookie Team

NUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUKKKKKK! - Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sport

Despite there being far too many games when DeAndre Hopkins was a complete afterthought in the 2013 Houston Texans' offense, his play still garnered appropriate recognition.

The Houston Texans' 2013 draft class didn't exactly set the world on fire in their maiden voyage. Of the Texans' nine (9) picks, only three (3)--DeAndre Hopkins, D.J. Swearinger, and Ryan Griffin--contributed on the field in any way in 2013. The rest...well, let's just say the jury is still out.

Except for Sam Montgomery. That verdict is in as far as the Texans are concerned. This post is not about Montgomery, though. It's about something positive (that's not a THC screening test).

Although DeAndre Hopkins was all too often a forgotten component of the Texans' offense for large chunks of the season (seriously, look at his game log; he was criminally underused after his game-winning performance in Week Two), the learned voters of the Pro Football Writers of America still saw fit to name 'Nuk to their All-Rookie squad.

Congrats to 'Nuk on this prestigious honor. I trust that Bill O'Brien will make sure the Texans take full advantage of Hopkins' skills going forward.
