06:55 AM ET 05.13 | Welcome to the world of heightened expectations, DeAndre Hopkins. [At rookie camp,] Hopkins looked every bit like a first-round draft pick. The Clemson wide receiver caught seemingly everything thrown his way, with at least one highlight-reel one-handed grab on all three days of practice. That included Sunday, when he caught a lofted deep ball from Case Keenum. ... Texans coach Gary Kubiak had consistently high praise for Hopkins, the No. 27 overall pick in the 2013 draft. "He's special," Kubiak said Sunday. "Ball skills are extremely special. Very long; long arms. Big hands; you saw the catch he made out here today. He's going to help us early, and we know that, and that's why we brought him here."

Kubiak's Texans- Never has anyone done so little with so much for so long. Though Turner's Charger teams have a valid argument.

Sounds like Kubiak is stealing soundbites from Barney the Dinosaur.

I remember a time when, if someone said you were special, it was a good thing...
