Star Lotulelei vs. Johnathan Hankins
Let me preface this thread by saying I think both these guys end up being top 10 picks in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Star is listed at 6'4, 320
Hankins is listed at 6'3, 322
Star has the upside to be a game changing gap penetrating DT in a 4 man front. Could also work in hybrid fronts. He is much more of a penetrating DT than a stout anchor. Star has more athletic ability and can be a Ngata/Suh guy given time. He cannot two gap as of yet but given time could do it if asked.
Hankins is just a mountain of a man who can penetrate and be stout at POA. He may not provide the upside of Star but he is far better at controlling the gaps and stopping the run. He needs to improve his pass rushing, but why? He shold not be asked to do that.
So just some quick thoughts on these two guys. I know picking one over the other really depends on scheme but who do you prefer and why?
my scent?...like making love to a lumberjack
<TACKLE> i will ngata give you a bj raji
<+BOE> Scott, with Burfict's character concerns (whether legit or not) you think Pioli would draft him. :D
<+ScottWright> Why not. Baldwin does need a sparring partner...
