BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter who began his college career at Southeastern Louisiana. Missed time with an injury last season and finished the year with 61%/3220/25/12. Junior-year totals included 2550 passing yards and 18 touchdown strikes.
POSITIVES: Patient timing passer who.s at his best throwing in the short field. Buys time for receivers, poised in the pocket, and displays a sense of timing. Displays good field vision and knows where his receivers are on the field. Looks off the safety, goes to the underneath targets, and does a nice job controlling the offense.
NEGATIVES: Forces the pass into coverage on occasion. Possesses marginal arm strength and cannot drive the long pass or zip the outs. Has passes batted down at the line of scrimmage.
ANALYSIS: Hankins has been a productive passer in his college career, yet he is a long shot to make it as a backup at the next level. He best fits a west coast offense.
