Anybody know what the biggest difference between Star and Hankins is? What about Short, Richardson or Floyd?

Thing I've heard about Star is that he has the physical size and talent to be NT or DT. Hankins is a big guy who makes a lot of tackles. I don't know about the others.

I'm a UGA fan and wouldn't take Jenkins in the first. Is Sylvester Williams any good?

Floyd is a disruptive DT. Solid player.

He is good in stuffing the run and getting pressure on the QB. I think the one downside, like many DTs, he struggles against mobile QBs. He may put pressure on him, but sometimes might not always get there. He'd be a good value pick and I am sure he will come out this year. He has a good story too that should keep him motivated.

I see signs with Hardy, Johnson and Alexander of a good combo of quick guys akin to the NY Giants D

IMO, Star, Hankins, Jenkins, and S. Williams are "run stuffers, NT".

I see Kawan Short, Richardson, Floyd and J. Williams as rushing DT, "3tech".

Star is quick off the snap and will constantly create double team on him. He's a great run stuffer. He lacks making tackles from sideline to sideline though IMO.

Hankins, when I look at him, he's not as quick off the snap but he somehow has the speed to make tackles sideline to sideline unlike Star.

That's really the difference. Both will create double team. Star is just quicker off the snap and Hankins a better tackler.
