Official School Bio
Ohio State University
Atlanta defensive coordinator Mike Nolan appears to want to shit to a 3-4 defense and one of the most important aspects of a 3-4 defense is having a true nose tackle. The Falcons do not have one on their current roster. Johnathan Hankins would fit perfectly and is a good value here at 19. Atlanta could also look at upgrading one of their offensive tackle spots, but with Aboushi and Joeckel going off the board with the two picks prior, they elect to grab the impact defensive lineman.
Also Considered:
