[b]10. [url="http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/team/carolina-panthers/67063"]Carolina Panthers[/url]: Johnathan Hankins, Defensive tackle, Ohio State*[/b]
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.

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.
