Hopkins has shown his great hands in the NFL

Former Clemson wide receiver Deandre "Nuk" Hopkins has been a reliable playmaker since being drafted by the Houston Texans in the first round (27th overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft.

His hands have been so good that he has caught an astounding 97% (128/132) of catchable passes thrown to him in his young career which is tops in the NFL.

In two years in the NFL, Hopkins has 128 catches for 2012 yards and eight touchdowns.

Hopkins' 76 receptions were 26th in the NFL and his 1,210 yards were an impressive 12th-best in the NFL last season. The yardage was 35% of the Texans' receiving yards which was the most in the entire league. He also averaged 75.6 yards per game and had an superb yardage per catch average of 15.9.

Hopkins had 206 receptions for 3020 yards and 27 touchdowns while at Clemson and was named a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award and first-team All-ACC by several publications.
