  • Giants' Roster Breakdown: Jonathan Hankins

    http://www.bigblueview.com/2013/6/29...nathan-hankins

    Excerpt: "The New York Giants are intent on improving their run defense in 2013, and selecting Johnathan Hankins in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft was part of that effort.

    As we continue to roll through our player-by-player look at the 90-man roster the New York Giants will bring to training camp we have arrived at one of the players the organization will be a bright new star on a hopefully much-improved defense. That would be Johnathan Hankins, the massive 6-foot-3, 320-pound defensive tackle selected in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft.

    2012 Season In Review

    Hankins registered 55 tackles (four for loss) and one sack in 12 games for the Ohio State Buckeyes, who went 12-0. Hankins earned first-team All Big 10 honors. He had 67 tackles (11 for loss) and three sacks in 2011." Read more...

    Big Hank is going to be nasty. The impassable blue mountain in 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.

      Change is good and our whol DT situation needed quite a bit of it. I hope he is part of a revitalized unit.
      No one remembers who came in second.

            Joseph is now a vet. Jenks and Patterson are stop gaps....

              Jenkins is a 3 tech, so he's not really comparable. Patterson and Joseph play Hank's position, both excel at stopping the run. I think Patterson is stronger than Joseph. I think Joseph is the best pass rusher of the three. Hank has the most upside.

                I agree. I think Hank is gonna make a big impact stopping the run, the more I watch tape on him the better I feel about him. His upper body is so strong and just handles o lineman with his chest and arm strength and tosses them aside at will. Hes still a kid too so hes gonna get stronger.

                  The only knock on him seems to be he may have wore down at the end of games and that was because he played just about every snap at 320 pounds. He won't be playing that many snaps so problem solved.

                    I hope I'm wrong about him, but I did not like his college tape. He often commanded two blockers, but wasn't particularly disruptive; also showed some effort / conditioning concerns. Personally, I would've preferred John Jenkins a bit later - though I know he isn't really the prototype 4-3 DT. Still I think he's going to have a better career.

                    Again, hope I'm wrong!

                      Jenkins doesn't really offer as much as Hankins does in terms of a pass rushing ceiling. I question if the former is even a 3 down player in the NFL.

                        The draft is such a crap shoot. Some guys answer the challenge at the next level and most do not. We'll know soon which camp Hankins falls into.

                          I think he eats up double teams and creates plenty of disruption and that's one of his biggest upsides. He was constantly on the field and getting double teamed and even when he was tired he was effecting the outcome of the play. He slows down sideline to sideline of course throughout the game but when fresh he hustles downhill and pursues like an animal. Like Buddy333 said hes probably not gonna get a ton of snaps (and if he does that means his conditioning got better, which is hopefully the case regardless).

                            Watch tape on this kid, he just doesn't get pushed backwards and normally has a double team. Think he will do just fine and we'll be seeing him in the rotation more and more as the season continues.

                              I just hope drafting Beef Hankins means Joseph isn't a priority free agent for them.
