2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Leonard Hankerson

  • Big-game experience since high school
  • Capable blocker for running game
  • Has been coached well, good route runner
  • Will make the big catch
  • Red zone target
  • Strong and physical
  • Good character

  • Does not possess elite speed
  • Will not make defenders miss after catch
  • Drops have been an issue

    Summary: Leonard Hankerson is not going to blow anyone away with his 40 time, but he is a long strider who can move once he gets going. He is a physical player who has improved when it comes to catching the ball over the middle in traffic where hits are delivered. His frame lends itself to being a capable blocker, and he is. Most of his damage after the catch will come from physically ridding himself of potential tacklers as opposed to juking them. Having Cris Carter being his position coach in high school and working with Mark Duper are nice touches for his resume.

    Player Comparison: Braylon Edwards. Hankerson and Edwards have similar size and ability to come up with the football down the field in dramatic fashion. Unfortunately both have been known to make fans moan after dropping what would have been a long gain.
