DeAndre Hopkins Profile

Clemson star wide receiver DeAndre "Nuk" Hopkins has a private workout today for St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher, according to a league source.

This workout will include other Rams' staffers, including offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, wide receivers coach Ray Sherman and quarterbacks coach Frank Cignetti, and marks the second workout for the NFC West club in the past four days after working out for them on Friday.

Hopkins previously visited the Carolina Panthers and worked out privately for Panthers receivers coach Ricky Proehl.

Hopkins was one of the draft prospects whose hotel room was trashed, including being smeared with feces, at the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis, but denied any wrongdoing to FOX Sports.

Hopkins said there was nothing wrong with the room upon his checkout. And his roommate, Rutgers wide receiver Mark Harrison, has also denied any involvement in the incident.

"Luckily, thank god, my agent got my flight booked early or it really would've been questionable if I did [it] or not," Hopkins said. "My agent got my flight booked early, he told me hurry up. I got done before Mark Harrison, so I was already packed. I already took a shower and packed and everything. Mark came in and we spoke for at least 20 minutes about the combine.

"Then the bellman came in and helped me get my bags out. And I left. That's honestly all I can say. I say check the cameras, that's the best way that you're going to get the answer," Hopkins said. "Check the cameras and check the timing of everything."

Hopkins improved his 40-yard dash to 4.4 seconds at his campus Pro Day workout after running a 4.57 at the NFL scouting combine.

As a freshman, Hopkins caught 52 passes for 537 yards and four touchdowns.

As a sophomore, Hopkins caught 72 passes for 978 yards and five touchdowns.

He caught 82 passes for 1,405 yards and 18 touchdowns as a junior and declared early for the NFL draft.

He's a projected first-round draft pick.

He finished his career owning the Tigers' career records with 3,020 receiving yards, 27 touchdowns and a dozen 100-yard receiving games.

Hopkins has drawn comparisons to Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne.
