Conference: Southwestern Athletic
40 Time: 4.86
Biography: Florida State transfer who moved into the starting lineup as a senior and then posted 29/404/3 in nine games.
Positives: Nice-sized tight end who plays with a large degree of athleticism. He blocks with knee bent, stays square, and jolts defenders with good hand punch. Strong at the point and controls defenders. Fluid releasing off the line into routes, he displays good movement skills, and effectively extends to make the reception away from his frame. Nicely adjusts to the errant throw and looks the ball into his hands.
Negatives: He does not display reliable hands and lets some catchable throws slip by. He must develop a nasty streak as a blocker. Seems to lose a sense of where he is on the field times.
Analysis: Hanna was highly thought of by NFL scouts upon entering Florida State yet played little football until last season. He's practice squad material who could eventually develop into a third tight end at the next level.
