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.
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.
