Hopkins taken 23rd by Houston Texans

The Houston Texans selected Clemson wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft last night in New York City.  Hopkins is the 23rd first-round selection in Clemson history and he is the first Clemson wide receiver to be selected in the first round since 2001. Hopkins is the first Clemson player to be drafted by the Houston Texans in history. His selection also means Clemson has had at least one player taken in the NFL Draft for 11 consecutive years. The Tigers have had at least one offensive player taken in the draft 10 straight years.
