The DeAndre Hopkins trade market should be heating up as we get closer to the NFL Draft.
Many teams want to have their rosters in place come draft time so they know what positions they need.
Any win-now team should be interested in Hopkins instead of drafting a rookie.
Despite being 31 years old next season, Hopkins can still be an elite WR1.
But he needs to be a part of a good offense to have the most impact.
Hopkins does not want to be a part of a rebuild, yet that seems to be happening in Arizona.
They will not have quarterback Kyler Murray to start next season, as he is expected to miss about half the year.
It will be difficult for the Cardinals to win without their franchise QB.
Many contending teams should be interested in Hopkins; he appears to even have preferences.
According to CBS Sports via Ari Meirov, Hopkins’ body language seems to show his interest in the Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs.

It should be no surprise that Hopkins has an interest in playing with Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen.
Breaking.. star wide receiver wants to go to a contender with a good quarterback. Ground breaking stuff here!

He seems less excited to play for the New York Jets or New England Patriots.
He wants to play with a good QB basically, there may be some uncertainty with the Jets and the Rodgers deal

Hopkins has yet to win a Super Bowl in his career, and you can assume that is his top priority.
Adding Hopkins to the defending champion Chiefs would almost make their team unfair.
He goes to the chiefs might as well hand them the ship this year

Mahomes and Hopkins would break the league, please no

It will be interesting to see which team is willing to give up the most to land Hopkins in a potential deal.NEXT: Tyreek Hill Made His Feelings Known On Dolphins' New Signing
