Scouting Report on Charlie Hopkins

On the Hoof: His most prominent physical feature is his frame and size potential. Hopkins has wide shoulders and a fairly lean upper body with very long arms. He could easily hold another 50 pounds. Really reminds me of Bronson Kaufusi on the hoof.
Needs Improvement: Hopkins needs to sink his shoulder pads into the belly of the ball carrier and drive his feet since arm tackles will not be as effective at the next level. Improving overall speed will make him a bigger threat as a pass rusher.
Most Impressive: For a tall athlete he plays with great pad level, and knows how to use his long arms to keep offensive linemen off his body. He also has a tremendous frame with great growth potential. His long wing span will make it hard for ball carriers to get to the boundary.
Conclusion: Hopkins has as much upside as any prospect in the country. It is not out of the realm of possibility for him to grow into a huge, light-footed left offensive tackle. His basketball skills also make him a candidate to become an every-down tight end. This versatility should lead to longevity in this game.
