If Brycen Hopkins needs any help in how to deal with the pressures of being a top draft prospect, he only needs to turn to his family for advice. Hopkins’s father, Brad Hopkins, was a first-round selection by the Houston Oilers in the 1993 NFL Draft. Hopkins Sr. played 13 seasons in the NFL, earning two Pro Bowl nods as well as an All-Pro berth in 2000. The younger Hopkins has not followed in his dad’s footsteps by manning the offensive line, however. Hopkins has earned his acclaim as a tight end, and one of the best in the country heading into the 2020 NFL Draft.


Despite coming from a family with an NFL pedigree, Hopkins initially seemed to be more focused on basketball as a youngster. He didn’t start playing football at The Ensworth School until his junior year. 247 Sports had him as a two-star prospect as the 73rd ranked TE prospect in the 2015 recruiting class. Hopkins received offers from Jacksonville State, Mercer, and Florida. But he eventually committed to Purdue.

Lead Writer, soft spot for the tight end position. Will never stop loving Duke Johnson.
