Overview:

Leonard Hankerson’s stock has been rising this off-season. He had an impressive showing at the Senior Bowl and then ran a fast 40 at the combine. He has strong hands with great body control. His only big issue is that he still struggles with drops. He’ll make a nice catch and then drop a screen pass the very next play. He doesn’t profile as a #1 WR but he can be a nice #2 option for a team in the NFL.
