Leonard Hankerson
Round 3, Pick 79
Position: WR
Class:  4Sr
School: Miami-Fl
Conference: Atlantic Coast
HT: 6-1.5
WT: 209
40 Time: 4.41
Biography: Two-year starter awarded all-Conference honors as a senior after posting career numbers of 72/1156/13. Junior totals included 45/801/6.

Positives: "Nice-sized receiver who has displayed tremendous progress over the past two years. Has a smooth, gliding style, uses his frame to shield away opponents, and makes difficult catches with defenders draped on him. Sturdy receiver who can take a big hit yet come away with the ball or even break tackles running after the catch. Shows great concentration, consistently makes the reception away from his frame, and adjusts to the errant throw. Makes the catch in stride and easily comes away with the difficult, over-the-shoulder reception downfield. Gives effort blocking downfield and gets results."

Negatives: Slows into pass routes. Lacks a burst and true deep speed.

Analysis: "Hankerson has been a reliable receiver for the Hurricanes the past two years and is one of the more underrated prospects at the position in April's draft. He lacks the dominant physical skills to be a number one receiver at the next level yet has all the tools necessary, both physical and mental, to be a productive second wide out."

Projection: 2nd
