Leonard Hankerson
Leonard Hankerson - Miami (FL) (HT: 6-1½ - WT: 209)
Combine 40: N/A - Pro Day 40: N/A - Position Rank: 4 of 60

Positives: Good size and speed combination... Catches the ball with his hands and his arms extended... Will make the acrobatic catch, has above-average body control... Good route runner, very crafty... Has received great coaching, high school position coach was former NFL great Cris Carter at St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Florida... Great leaping ability, can out jump defenders to the football... Consistent production, had four or more catches in 11 of 13 games this year... His 13 touchdown catches in 2010 set a single season school record at Miami (FL)... Hard worker, a high character player... Always working in the offseason to improve his game, worked last year with former NFL wide receiver Mark Duper... A viable deep threat, averaged 17.8 yards per catch in 2009 and 16.1 yards per catch in 2010... Has gotten better every year, should continue into the NFL... Has absolutely massive hands... Terrific showing at the Senior Bowl, saw his stock rise as much as any receiver.

Negatives: Drops too many easy passes, has lapses in concentration... Looks up field before securing the football... Lack of focus will drive coaches crazy... Lacks suddenness in his game, more of a straight line runner.. Not a great runner after the catch... Has received many Braylon Edwards comparisons for his knack for making a big play then dropping a sure catch the next time the ball is thrown to him.
