    hopefully hankins is as dominant as Vilfork but with a better burst. Like everyone else has stated he wasn't brought in to get sacks he was brought in to get pressure up the middle. Enough of this read option crap. Lets see how well RG3 can read when big hank is blowing up his centers and guards putting them right in his face.

        You see the comments in that article? Eagles fans were drooling over him. Many thought he wouldnt last to the 4th pick in the 2nd round. I love the video and I love this pick. This guy is a mauler on the Dline.

          The Giants plan to utilize No. 49 overall pick Johnathan Hankins as a two-down run-stuffing 4-3 nose tackle.Hankins is 6-foot-3 and 320 pounds. "Big, wide-bodied space-eater inside," described scouting director Marc Ross. "His skill set was real easy to identify. You watch him play, and that’s what he does, he just shuts people down when they try to run the ball." Hankins will push incumbent NT Linval Joseph for snaps.

            I agree that we have to see 1st hand before anointing any of our picks but there were red flags for Austin that I don't believe exist for Hankins. Austin although talented hadn't played the entire year. Hankins basically played 2 seasons in one year with all the snaps he played. Hankins was at 350lbs at one point and hot down to his current weight of 320 by the amount of snaps he took. Lazy guys dont play 70 snaps or progressively lose 30lbs over the course of 3 years. I'd have more questions if he went on a crash diet and lost the weight in one year than what he did over 3 years. This guy is a meatball who hustles to the ball, knowing full well that he won't be the first one to it.

Austin did show flashes in camp his rookie season but losing another season due to injury has hurt him. It's also not like he has played a lot and you can say based on his pay he is a bust. It's unfortunate. Still, that does not validate he comparison of the two. The only knock on Hankins seems to be that he where's down after playing 60-70 snaps a game and he will probably never see anywhere near that in the pros.
              Marvin Austin was projected as a first round talent before he ran into NCAA trouble.

              The Giants picked up a situational DT, and used a 2nd round pick for it. I'm skeptical he was worth that high a selection until we see him play against pro centers and guards.

              Until then, I'm from Missouri.

                Not after a year off. What difference does that make anyway? Guys slip all the time and it does not mean they are bad.

                  Other than being 2nd round picks there s nothing to say he will have the same lack of production as Austin.

                    Hankins is going to be a baller. He's a run defense first tackle. He's going to be nasty...
                    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.

                      I'm just pointing out that people were looking at Austin being an impact player, and he wasn't. The knock on Hankins is he wears down and then starts to give up on plays. I'm just reading the scouting reports.

                      True, but the converse holds true as well; nothing is telling me this dude is the 2nd Coming of Warren Sapp, either.

                      I hope so.... he better be awesome against the run to validate a 2nd round pick. I would have preferred an every-down defender with that high a selection.

                        There is still no comparison to Austin other than being a 2nd round pick. Austin didn't play his senior season and then was hurt his entire rookies season. Why not compare him to Joseph who was also a 2nd round pick and didn't miss his senior season?

                          You need to re read your scouting reports or stop picking and choosing what you want to say the guy has issues. He didn't have a conditioning issue. He played 60+ to 70 snaps a games across the D-Line at every technique and from what I saw excelled at all of them. Taking on double Teams and holding the point of attack. Spliting Double teams, going over the guards the center the tackle. Rushing the passer hitting backs in the backfield. Making openfield tackles after running across the field. NOT ONE other DT that was in this draft did what Hankins did on a weekly basis. NONE of them. Yeah some of them had better sack stats or tackling stats. Some got more attention but none of them did what Hankins did or could do. Was Hankins a sack machnine No but he can rush the QB as a 3T DT. Richardson,Floyd,Star and none of the rest had the versatility Hankins did and they certainly didn't do it every game all game 60+ to 70 snaps.
