2020 Fantasy Outlook
An excellent route runner who improved each year during his collegiate career at Purdue, Hopkins bolsters an already impressive Los Angeles tight end corps. Selected in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, the pick suggests head coach Sean McVay's increased use of 12 personnel late last season could continue this year. Additionally, with tight end Gerald Everett in the final campaign of his rookie deal, the Rams could move on from their 2017, second-round selection -- especially if Hopkins impresses as a rookie. It's still important to note that Hopkins doesn't project as a reliable blocker at this stage of the game, so playing time could be scarce this year with Tyler Higbee established, Johnny Mundt a sound blocker and Everett in a make-or-break season.

RANKS
$Signed a four-year contract with the Rams in July of 2020.
Drafted by Los Angeles
TELos Angeles Rams
April 25, 2020
The Rams selected Hopkins in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 136th overall.
ANALYSIS
It's an interesting selection considering the Rams' ability to utilize athletic tight ends, which is essentially the core of Hopkins as a pro. The redshirt senior did have drop problems throughout his collegiate career at Purdue, and that's unlikely to change with Los Angeles. He's buried behind both Tyler Higbee and Gerald Everett on the depth chart, but the latter will see his contract expire in 2021, so this feels like something of a luxury/future-based pick.
