Texans finally add at WR, draft DeAndre Hopkins

The Texans finally got serious Thursday about finding a No. 2 wide receiver. Clemson wideout DeAndre Hopkins @Nukdabomb was the pick by Houston with the No. 27 pick. It's the first time that the Texans have selected a wide receiver before the third round since 2003. That year, they took Andre Johnson @johnson80 third overall.

Fantasy Analysis:

It's an obviously overdue move. Hopkins doesn't have the eye-popping athleticism of some of the other WRs in this class, but he is a safe, solid choice. He is a fine route-runner with very dependable hands. Will he be a big-time producer in 2013? Probably not. Is he going to be more productive than Kevin Walter? I think so. Hopkins has a good shot at opening the season as a full-time starter across the field from Johnson. You should draft him as a WR5 and hope you end up with WR3 value.
