Best: DeAndre Hopkins
For some time now, the Houston Texans have been trying to find a wide receiver to pair with Andre Johnson. Outside of Johnson, quarterback Matt Schaub has had to rely heavily on tight end Owen Daniels. Daniels has practically lined up everywhere on the field to create mismatches.
They've used him as an in-line tight end, he has been positioned in the slot and at times they even split him out wide as wide receiver. With the addition of Clemson wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, Schaub will hopefully have a third pass-catcher who is viewed as reliable.
Hopkins' presence should open things up for both Johnson and Daniels. The last ACC wide receiver the organization selected in the first round turned out to be a great success, I'm sure they are hoping for similar results from their second first-round wide receiver out of the ACC.
Worst: Ed Reed
As good as Ed Reed once was, it's debatable whether or not he is as good as he once was. Reed is an incredible playmaker who often garners the spotlight with highlight reel plays. However, those same highlight reel attempts don't always turn into positive plays for the defense.
Most teams would rather have a free safety who displays good range and keeps everything in front of him. Which is exactly why the organization should have paid Glover Quin. Quin may not intercept as many passes as Reed, but at this point in his career he is a younger, more consistent player.
Moreover, he's a very good defender against the run. Odds are Quin will keep getting better, and Reed will slowly continue to fall off.
