    I saw a clip of him on "Game Changers" on NFL Network, I think. Or maybe it was another show, I dunno anymore, He seems very humble.

    I don't expect him to dominate in his first year. Use him in the rotation and let him mature and get better.

      you can't find players like this anymore, which is why he slipped. everything is passrush now. this guy just eats up space.

      love this pick. absolutely LOVE IT.
      Couldn't agree more, after watching team after team run through the middle of our line last year this was the guy that the G'men needed. I liked this pick a ton!

        No reason to compare him to Austin. When Austin was drafted he already lost a full year. Then he tore his pec and lost another season. No one knows for sure what could have been had he not lost all that time. Maybe he even comes to camp in shape and competes this year especially with the draft and FA. As for the pick, sound like as long as they monitor his snaps he should be able to hold up just fine. Some better nutrition and training could give him a few more snaps as well.

It is a very valuable position to the defense. Just don't go expecting a lot of sacks from this guy. He is a meatwall, not a sacker.
          Meatwall.. hehe

            We sure could have used a meatwall or two last year. After watching the video, I like the pick even more.
            No one remembers who came in second.

              For such a big guy, he looks really nimble on the field. In his Highlight videos, the way that he stands up double teams and then sheds them and envelops the Running back is awesome. He also seems to have good vision to diagnose where the play is headed and where the running back is as the back lets the blocks develop.

              I'm excited for Hankins. In a lot of those plays in his footage, he sucks in running backs like a vacuum cleaner.

                If anything, Hankins reminds me of Fred Robbins (but gets more penetration even).

                With a good DT rotation to keep him fresh, I expect big things (heh) from this kid.
                I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

                  I'm thinking he's going to make our LBers look a lot better too.
                  Do not feed the trolls.

                    Greatest DT of all time.

                      OMGZZZZ i cannot wait for this!!!!!

                      Joseph and Hankins down the middle!

                      Joseph and Big Rogers down the middle!

                      hopefully Austin shows up!

                      this will collapse pockets and leave plenty of picking for our ends if they can contain!

                      Stand with Cruz!

                        Hankins caught my eye during the 2012 season. I actually thought he would be a first rounder. He will be able to help push the middle and collapse the pocket allowing our JPP and Tuck DEs to get to the QB more often. Joseph will beast up as well. We will still need a solid rotation though as the article suggests to allow some blows for these massive guys.
                        WE ALREADY HAVE A GREAT RUNNING BACK:

                          This guy will require attention from teams. Which should pull double teams off of JPP...which will end with SACKS

                            So that's why TC said we were "soft up the middle".
                            Because of all of the effort and examination being poured into these predictions, the draft is a robust market that, in the aggregate, does a good job of sorting prospects from top to bottom.1 Yet despite so many people trying to “beat the market,” no single actor can do it consistently. Abnormal returns are likely due to luck, not skill. But that hasn’t stopped NFL executives from behaving with the confidence of traders.

                              we dont need him for sacks we need him to help JPP, TUCK, KIWI, AND MOORE get sacks...

                                Yes as soon as I saw his name on the ticker I was like, "YES!!!" When you face Murray, McCoy, and Morris twice a year its a necessary piece of your defense. This is what I wanted more than any other pick.
