Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre “Nuk” Hopkins was born on June 6, 1992 in Clemson, South Carolina. He began playing football at Clemson University and was among the best players to have represented the college. He led the team to an ACC Championship in 2011. He was Houston Texans’ 27th overall pick in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
In 2020, the Texans made a daring move to trade Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals and faced criticism from sports analysts. Hopkins proved the Texans wrong by recording a career-high 14 receptions for 151 yards in his debut match against the San Francisco 49ers in a 24–20 win and was NFL Offensive Player of the Week in Week 10 after scoring the winning touchdown to defeat the Buffalo Bills.
Hopkins was named to five All-Pro teams and is a five-time Pro Bowler. He is the youngest player to reach 700 catches, and continues to impress with his performance.
