Kiper: Hopkins is top rookie through three weeks

Through three weeks, draft guru, and human brillo pad, Mel Kiper has named our very own DeAndre Hopkins as the best rookie of the young 2013 season.

Here's hoping he'll be the best rookie by the end of it, too.

1. DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Houston Texans "He has been a key entity on offense thus far, showcasing terrific hands and the ability to come through when the defense knows he's a likely target. He's playing like a five-year veteran, not a rookie with just three games under his belt. So far, he also has been the perfect complement to Andre Johnson, with 18 catches to Johnson's 25, and 26 targets to Johnson's 35.

"A couple of other things stick out to me. For one, Hopkins isn't just running in a straight line. He has shown a good diversity in his route running, and is showing some veteran chops. Secondly, he has exactly zero drops so far on 26 targets. When you add that up in the context of a position where it has been tough for rookies to deliver major impact year after year, you have the most impressive rookie to me so far."
