10. Carolina Panthers: Johnathan Hankins, Defensive tackle, Ohio State*
Hankins could be the first top-10 pick out of Ohio State since Vernon Gholston went sixth overall to the Jets in 2007. Hopefully, he’ll have a better NFL career. I’ve seen him slated anywhere from the teens to the second round, but I think he’s a top-10 guy. He occupies blockers, and though listed at 322 pounds, he is likely a bit heavier. He can step up and contribute right away for Carolina in 2013. This defensive line has some pieces, but still isn’t very good. They’ve been working on rebuilding it for years. Hankins could be the centerpiece.

Comments?

Is being at 10 just a prediction, or is that where we currently sit with tie breakers.

We better be all over Hankins if he's there when our pick come. I don't know if he'll make it out Top8 though.

I fail to see how far Star falls down to 9. KC picking an OT #1? That's sexy...

Otherwise, I like it.

Hasn't Hankins stock been falling as of late? I know its early though...no combine or pro days yet (or for a while).

Yea, I don't see that mock draft being terribly realistic at this point. If Star did fall that far, and a team that could use a DT like Tennessee is picking before us, I'd be hoping like hell our new GM trades up 2 spots (our 4th and 5th round picks? next year's 3rd? a player?) to grab him. In this mock's scenario, you'd have to believe Buffalo would be willing to trade down a couple spots for relatively cheap since their guy would almost certainly be still available at our spot.

yes it has.

The draftniks that have gone back and looked at his tape all say the same thing.....that he lacks a burst off the ball and is not a disruptive force. That is why his stock has fallen from Top 10 lock to maybe 2nd round pick.

Interested to see how he grades out at the combine.

From what i have seen i dont see the big hype about Hankins, i think Sheldon Richardson and Star are the only two worth being taken in the top ten.

If he turns out then he could be the NT we've been looking for since Jenks left. I do think we need OL help more than DL help at this point though...and honestly the bust rate for DTs just seems like it is really high compared to other positions. If he's not a Ngata type player (which it doesn't sound like he is) then it could end up being an epically bad pick. Especially if it means passing on talents like Kenan Allen, Jake Matthews (who could actually be better than Joekel), Jonathan Banks. At this point I think that our 1st round pick should be dictated by who we could get at certain positions in the rounds that come later...
