7. WR DeAndre Hopkins, So.
Like his uncle, the late Terry Smith, Hopkins is one of four freshmen in school history to have led the Tigers in receiving.
THE RESUME: Hopkins was rated by Scout.com as the No. 14 cornerback in the class of 2010. He played in both the Shrine Bowl and the Offense-Defense All-American game.
During his four-year career at nearby Daniel High School, he had 28 interceptions for 555 yards and five touchdowns. He also caught 57 passes for 1,266 yards and 18 touchdowns and returned 11 punts for 289 yards and three scores as a wide receiver.
As a freshman at Clemson, Hopkins caught 52 passes for 637 yards and four touchdowns. His nine catches against South Florida in the Meineke Car Care Bowl set a school bowl record.
MOVING FORWARD: Hopkins has what offensive coordinator Chad Morris looks for in a guy playing the 9-position - a reliable pass catcher who runs quality routes. The speed's decent, but doesn't have to be great. That's Hopkins, in a nutshell.
Not only Will Hopkins continue to play a prominent role as a receiver, he's also a candidate to return punts this fall.
No. 7: DeAndre Hopkins
