Its always that one player in every draft that is hyped and I PRAY we do not pick. Hankins is that player this year.

I see so many users on here going around saying how they love every single player, you never hear any of them actually being against a player and giving logical reasons why.

I try to do this as much as possible, because hey, what's the fun of liking every prospect? And there are plenty of busts every year.

That being said, here are some names from the first and second round that I dislike:

John Hankins

Taylor Lewan

Keenan Allen

Matt Elam

Kenny Vaccarro

Eric Reid

TJ McDonald

Robert Lester

Barrett Jones

Kawaan Short

Yours?

Can I ask you why you dislike Reid?

I just find him severely overrated. DBs from LSU instantly get recognition just because of the name. Reid was a good college player, and is attractive to some because of his big hits. That will not be the case in the NFL. He takes terrible angles and very risky hits in the open field that will result in missed tackles.

He is not the guy I want in the last line of our defense.

Anything from Clemson

Most of the ones from LSU

That's about it.

Do you think he should go back for his senior year? For polish?

Nah he'll do what every LSU player does and jump to the NFL when they realize how much money they'll make.

I'm pretty sure all the LSU defenders have declared.

Who wants to bet me right now that Hankins will be available when we pick in the second?

I wouldn't doubt it. I was LOLing hard when people were mocking Devon Still anywhere in the first round last year. I can't see a team dumb enough to buy Hankins hype.

I just think that jones will be average at the next level. It depends on where he lands and what position he plays, but I certainly don't want him.

Allen's injury scares me and he lacks explosiveness and speed. He could be a good slot guy but I want a #1 receiver.

His value lies in his versatility. He could save a roster spot.

Obviously a little behind with a Jerel Worthy avatar lol.

He has no pass rush, strictly a run stuffer. His motor isn't very high so he'll sub every couple plays. Has nagging injury history. Definitely not worth a first round pick.

lol Easy with the Worthy avatar! I only really log on for the draft talk every year, couldn't be assed changing it from last year lol

It's interesting what you said about Hankins. I've watched 2 game tapes and it was heaven and hell; he was hella inconsistent. He does seem to be fast enough to rush the passer when he feels like it. I'll have to watch more tape to get a better idea of him.

The DT class this year is pretty intriguing. Star and Sylvester WIlliams are both athletic FREAKS, ala Poe, only they've actually produced on the field. Richardson also reminds me a lot of Cox coming out of last year. With DT prospects like these, I think a lot of the other guys will get pushed down either way. If you're right, Hankins will be one of the first victims. Jenkins I think will drop even lower.
