Hankerson had a great game no doubt.

But seeing him this high seems like a overreaction to 1 game....

Is this just an overreaction to one game? I mean I'm not comparing the two but Mardy Gilyard had a good Senior Bowl and he couldn't even get on the field for the St. Louis Rams, who arguably have the worst set of Receivers in the NFL. Heck he couldn't even get activated.

Couldn't learn the playbook. The one or two games he did see the field he always lined up wrong, Sam Bradford had to help line him up correctly. Depending on what the Rams do this offseason, he could be cut.

I was thinking the same thing about Titus Young who looked small, unagressive and average. Like they say it's only one game.

He might be functionally re-tarded. Forest Gump style.

You guys are falling into the Hankerson trap way too easily.

He will struggle big time to get off the line against press coverage because of the lack of quickness and burst. He doesn't come out of his breaks with any sort of special burst, and will drop the easy passes. He doesn't have special size or speed, and isn't great after the catch.

He's nothing more than a very average WR. I wouldn't spend more than a 3rd round pick on him and even then I'd look to other guys.

Probably not as fast though.

Was impressed with your guy Sanzenbacher. He just gets open and he doesnt drop the football, if i'm looking for a 3rd or 4th receiver i want him.

Mardy Gilyard was my top receiver last year based off what I could see from him on the field. I wouldn't have had him as high if I had any way of knowing he wouldn't be able to learn the play book. The kid can play, so expect a breakout year if he can grasp the mental aspect of the pro game in the mean time.

I've had Hankerson ranked pretty high all year. Prior to the Senior Bowl I had him in the top 50. When I decided to move him up it had little to do with the game, rather what I saw and heard about him from the week of practice. I sort of consider Hankerson 3A, Jon Baldwin 3B, and Titus Young 3C. They are all 3 different and will come off the board based on what "flavor" each particular team drafting a WR high is looking for. Hankerson is more the intermediate, steady possession type WR, Baldwin is the big body deep threat receiver, and Young is the fast, quick game-breaking type receiver.

Didn't get to see the game. Glad to hear he was impressive. He's just one of those types of unsung, hardworking players that can really improve a team. He'd be a great 3rd WR.

There's not much question about his talent. To me he's pretty much Calvin Johnson 2.0. I know a lot of people will read that and quickly say he's not nearly as fast as Johnson. Those people will be surprised when they see his 40 time.

The thing with Baldwin is his character. He's been in some trouble, but isn't exactly a menace to society either. With him the biggest issue is going to be attitude. I have some inside information on him that creates a big red flag. When he gets some money in his pocket I doubt his attitude gets any better, if anything it will get worse.

Non the less, the kid has a ton of talent and is a former Aliquippa Quip...

Keep him away from nightclubs and guns and he probably wont end up being stupid like Plax. I would think you could make the same argument about a lot of these guys when they get money in their pockets.

I'm not so concerned about him getting into trouble. He pretty much has the same chance as most other prospects to do that. I'm saying his attitude isn't good. I know someone who was a graduate assistant at Pitt during Baldwins first two seasons and have been told he's not exactly the best teamate. I've been told his work ethic isn't exactly up to par and when things don't go his way, look out. I'm saying I doubt he has any improvement once he gets some money in his pocket. This info is all new to me, but it came from a pretty reliable source.

I was born in the south and have always loved the SEC, but jeff maehl at 34? Come on, I have been following this receiver carefully for the past 2 years when he was converted into a receiver and all I can say is that every time he plays, he just impresses me more and more. I am aware he is not all that tall or lightening fast, but this kid knows the game. He can get open, and he makes plays when you need them. If you have watched everyone of his games, he makes catches Julio Jones or A.J. Green wouldnt make. Maehl has the best hands in college football by far and this kid is going to be big in the NFL. He needs to be at least in the mid to low teens in rankings. Mark my words, this kid is going to be great.

We will see. I understand what type of player he was at Oregon, but it's a different game in the NFL. He's just not all that impressive physically in any way. Remember Mike Haas from Oregon State? Could be a similar case.

Hankerson has been a stud all year. He broke Michael Irvin's Miami touchdown record. I'd say this isn't a one game reaction, just more of a solidification of the fact that he can and does perform vs top competition.

Hankerson's rating isn't the result of one game. I'm not sure where people are getting that from.

I think Darvin Adams warrants a little more attention. I know he's scrawny, but he competes and makes some nice catches.

DeAndre Brown is a huge risk. Does he give a damn or not? He may make things easier on teams by hurting himself tying up his cleats at the combine.

I think Darvin Adams is extremely under-hyped as a draft prospect. The guy just finds gaps in coverage and makes plays.
