I have a brother in law who lives in Columbus and goes to all of their games. Alumnus. He told me that Vernon Gholston was not going to be a good pro, for example, if that gives him cred. He says that Hankins has flashes where he is good, but is not really great at stopping the run or pressuring the passer. Says that he is somwhat of a tweener in that respect, not sure he can anchor well enough to play NT and not quick enough to play 3tech. He did, however, say that he has flashes that cause him to change his opinion. He wears down at ends of games--thinks his work ethic is questionable. Now, it is significant to note that he was talking about Hankins at #14--imperfections are magnified there. He would take him in a heartbeat at #44. He thinks he has upside and could develop into a stud DT with the right coach and a different attitude.

Seems like a neat site...but what's up with Desmond Trufant as the #13 rated CB ? From what I've gathered, I thought he was pretty much the consensus 3rd best CB in this draft.


I ignore their rankings, I just them for the well organized videos of prospects.

I'd gladly take Hankins at #44 if we don't pick up a NT in FA. It seems like most knocks on DTs is wearing out. You have to take into consideration Ohio State played him all over the line even DE. He won't do that here. His job would be to occupy blockers and push the pocket. The Panthers will rotate him to keep him fresh.

The problem is Hankins is a lazy SOB. All DTs wear down but Big Hank disappears rather quickly. He has flashes of potential but Hankins puts minimal effort into his training regimen. If he doesn't want to excel as a player, then I don't want him at all. We don't need a two down NT. Give me a Brandon Williams any day.
