Hopkins is one of the top receivers in the NFL

NFL.com has released their 2013 NFL Draft do-over on Thursday and former Clemson standout DeAndre Hopkins was picked #1 overall to the Kansas City Chiefs.

"Hopkins would give the Chiefs an explosive WR1 to build around with Alex Smith at the controls," NFL.com said in the hypothetical draft.

The Houston Texans had an excellent pick with Hopkins with the 27th overall selection in the first round back in 2013.

Hopkins is the second player in NFL history along with Randy Moss to record 3,500 receiving yards before the age of 24. He has accrued an amazing 239 catches for 3,533 yards (14.8 ypg) and 19 touchdowns since entering the NFL in 2013.

He had 111 catches for 1,521 yards (13.7 ypg) and 11 touchdowns this season and was named as a Pro-Bowl starter for the first time in his career (alternate last season).

His 2015-2016 season was remarkable in a Texans' historical perspective as he had the third-most catches, fourth-most receiving yards and fourth most receiving touchdowns. He was also the first player in NFL history to have 100-yard receiving games with four different starting quarterback in a single season (Brian Hoyer, Ryan Mallett, T.J. Yates and Brandon Weeden).
