    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.
    the "realist" is a lazy piece of crap that works on his tan while sipping a margarita,
    the pessimist changes the sails while complaining about the lazy piece of crap,
    and the optimist changes the sails while hoping the lazy piece of crap will start to do his share of the work.

    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!

    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.

    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".

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

    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.
    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.
