DeAndre Hopkins has 3,533 receiving yards in his first three NFL seasons. So he means great things when he says he sees himself in New Orleans Saints rookie Michael Thomas.

In 2014 with Ohio State, Thomas had 799 receiving yards with nine TDs. He also had nine touchdown grabs in 2015, this time with 781 receiving yards. He was later drafted in the second round by New Orleans at this year’s NFL draft.
In case anyone wants proof, Thomas made an impressive one-handed catch during Thursday’s joint practice.
