Hankins is unique in that he was a multi-role 3 down player for OSU at his size. Most guys that far over 3 bills are two down types who lack stamina and motor. Hankins bucks that trend and that makes him very interesting.
I could have seen you taking Richardson since Dallas is supposed to be mixing in more 4-3 stuff, but if they want to flip back and forth Richardson loses his appeal rather quickly, while Hankins is a nice fit either way.

Oh well, another KC DL head scratcher
Yep. He's shown no real ability to stuff running lanes. Two gapping against NFL level OLs sounds like a great way for him to disappear and never be heard from again. He needs a 4-3 front that wants him to just attack all day long.
