Texans sign first-round draft pick, WR DeAndre Hopkins

The Houston Texans have signed first-round pick WR DeAndre Hopkins, giving them seven of nine 2013 draft picks now under contract.

Hopkins, who left Clemson after his junior season, is a deep threat who could be the complement for star receiver Andre Johnson that the Texans long have sought. He 82 passes and set school records with 1,405 yards receiving and 18 touchdown receptions last year.

For his career at Clemson, Hopkins had 206 receptions for 3,020 yards and 27 touchdowns, becoming the sixth player in ACC history with more than 3,000 yards receiving and the only player in conference history to gain that many yards in just three seasons.
