The 22-year old playmaker has established himself as the go-to-guy for the Texans' especially after the team released long-time franchise wide receiver Andre Johnson.
"He (Hopkins) had a really productive year," Texans coach Bill O'Brien said to ESPN. "The thing that we really like about Hop and that we want him to continue to do is his work ethic. He’s a hungry player. He works every single day. He came into the spring a year ago and he was learning the offense and thinking out there, then all of a sudden you could see all the work he put in and learning, he just took off."
"We just want to see him continue and progress," O'Brien said. "We think he can be one of the best, we think he is one of the best. We have a lot of confidence in him and we’re looking forward to seeing him progress when the offseason program starts."
In 2014, Hopkins had 76 catches (127 targets) for 1,210 yards and 6 touchdowns. The 1210 yards accounted for 35% of the Texans' receiving yards which was the most in the entire league. In two years in the NFL, he has 128 catches for 2012 yards and eight touchdowns.
Hopkins had 206 receptions for 3020 yards and 27 touchdowns while at Clemson.
