DeAndre Hopkins Named To NFL All-Pro First Team

DeAndre Hopkins was one of the two best wide receivers in the NFL this year.

DeAndre Hopkins had an incredible season. He caught 96 passes on 174 targets for 1,378 yards, averaging 14.4 yards a reception, and scored 13 touchdowns. He did this with only six games that Deshaun Watson started, leaving him forced to catch scraps from Tom Savage and T.J. Yates through the other nine games (he sat out the season finale). Hopkins is the second Texans wide receiver to make the All-Pro team; the first was Andre Johnson, of course.

Nuk was the only player on the Texans to make an All-Pro team. Sadly Everson Griffen, Demarcus Lawrence, Calais Campbell, and Cameron Jordan were selected ahead of him because sacks rule everything around me.

Below are the results for the first and second team NFL All-Pro selections this year.
