Houston Texans wide receiver Deandre "Nuk" Hopkins spoke to the media on Monday and was asked what his thoughts on his NFL team possibly drafting former Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson.

"I'm a Clemson guy, so I'm a little biased," Hopkins said. "The organization knows who we need more so than my biased opinion of who I want. Wherever he goes, I know he'll do fine as he won quarterback of the year back-to-back. He got snubbed of the Heisman but in my eyes, he is the Heisman quarterback, but we haven't talked. We have mutual friends because I still have cousins that play at Clemson."

Hopkins contemplated what he and Watson would do playing together on the same offense.

"I'm pretty sure he would like to throw me the football," Hopkins said with a huge grin.

Watson is on day two of his visit with the Texans this week.

In 2016, Watson completed 388 passes out of 579 attempts for 4593 yards and 41 passing touchdowns with 17 interceptions (and his degree) for an adjusted QBR of 84.9. For his career, he passed for 9,201 yards with 83 touchdowns and 29 interceptions. On the ground, Watson had 1,744 yards and 21 touchdowns during his time at Clemson.
