    Andre Johnson was a different beast athletically but Hopkins does things that WR shouldn't be able to do. He makes it seem so effortless kind of like Randy Moss without as much speed. His effectiveness as a route runner and his ability to tip toe is just insane... IMO makes him better than Dre.

    Hopkins will have better statistics at the end of his career than Dre (that stat shows this to be true or at least on pace...). He's a Future HOF. Just needs to stay healthy.

    Raw talent maybe, Andre was a better physical specimen. Nuk has way better hands than Andre ever had, more agile in the open field, more versatile, fights for balls better, and comes up big when it counts. Nuk runs routes just as good as Andre did. Nuk reminds me of James Harden a bit, not physically imposing but still has all the tools and skills to routinely beat you.

    Andre was also in a quality offensive system for Kubiak's entire run. Nuk has had to deal with BOB and a dozen QBs.

    AJ
    Do we forget the early years for AJ in the Dom Capers/David Carr offense. AJ didn't have Schaub throwing to him until his 5th season in the league. Hoyer and Fitz both had better seasons in Houston than Carr ever did.

    Andre did that (1,500+ yards) 3 times and was on track to do it 2 more times but got injured.

    Yep! Pretty good player. He hit those 1500+ yards from age 27.

    Hopkins should be raring to go once he hits his straps at 27

    AJ was better than Hopkins has been so far. AJ was also a great blocker when he needed to be.

    It would be awesome if he does but it has been extremely rare historically
