NFL Prospect Preview: Ohio State DT Jonathan Hankins

Hankins is a big dude.  Hands down.  His size and stature screams NT in a 3-4 defense.  Hankins has the ability to be a run stopper and space eater for one of the many 3-4 teams in the league.  On top of that, he does have play making ability which is always a bonus.  On the flip side, defensive lineman have been some of the big busts that show up in the NFL, always something to keep in mind. 

Here is my conversation with Ben Axelrod of BuckeyeGrove.com on Hankins

YES!  I believe he is going to be the guy the Packers pull the trigger on in the first round.  With Ryan Pickett getting up there in years and B.J Raji entering the final year of his contract, defensive line, specifically nose tackle, is going to be a big need.  Hankins is an anchor.  I think they go in this direction.
