Cardinals receiver DeAndre Hopkins comes in at No. 8 in NFL Top 100
DeAndre Hopkins was one of two wide receivers to crack the top 10 in the annual NFL Top 100, coming in at No. 8.
He joins teammates Chandler Jones (No. 15), Larry Fitzgerald (No. 69), Kyler Murray (No. 90) and Budda Baker (No. 97) as members of the Arizona Cardinals who made the list.
Hopkins has been close to breaking into the top 10 before. He came in at No. 11 in 2019, No. 13 in 2018 and No. 19 in 2016.
Last season with the Houston Texans, Hopkins finished tied for second in the NFL in receptions by a wide receiver with 104. The only players with more catches were wide receiver Michael Thomas and running back Christian McCaffrey.
He finished with 1,165 receiving yards and seven touchdowns in 15 games played.
Although he logged better stats in 2018 in catches, yards and touchdowns, the consistency he has shown through seven years in the NFL may have been the mechanism to propel him into the top 10.
Hopkins finished with more than 100 catches in back-to-back season and has had more than 1,000 yards for three straight years. He has had a total of five seasons of more than 1,000 receiving yards and three seasons with more than 10 touchdowns.
Thomas was the only receiver ranked higher than Hopkins, coming in at No. 5. He led the NFL in receptions with 149 and yards with 1,725.
