8. DeAndre Hopkins, Clemson
Matched with teammate Sammy Watkins at Clemson, Hopkins shared touches as Tajh Boyd threw the ball all over the yard. However, with Watkins missing time in 2012, Hopkins emerged a Boyd’s go-to target; he hauled in 82 receptions (No. 2 ACC) for 1,405 yards (No. 1 ACC) and 18 touchdowns (No. 1 ACC).
Hopkins is one only five ACC receivers to record 1,400+ receiving yards in a single season. His 18 touchdown catches remain a single-season league record.
For his career, Hopkins caught 206 balls for 3,020 yards (14.7 yards per catch) and 27 touchdowns.
