NT is probably the number one possition of need. Its hard to aquire a guy that can make a huge differance right away at NT in the later rounds.
The problem i have with Hankins in this draft, is he is not going to be there when we pick IMO.
I have seen more and more mocks where Hankins slips, but I agree that he shouldn't. I value him much more than Jesse Williams and Margus Hunt for instance. Hankins at 31 would completely make my draft.
I think you are seeing him slip in mocks around here because of wishful thinking.
I have Jenkins, and Williams both as probable pickups at NT with one of our early picks because i dont think he will fall.
But i agree, he would probably be the ideal pick at #31, just dont see him being there. I would be extremely happy if we got him at that pick.
