Alfie's Player Ranking 36 out of 100
Projected Round: 1-2

Today continues my countdown to the Top 100 draftable players of the 2011 NFL Draft. We move on to my 36th ranked player, Miami (FL) wide receiver Leonard Hankerson.

Height: 6-2

Weight: 205lbs

PROS: Good combination of size and speed for the receiver position. Soft hands and doesn’t drop many footballs.  Uses his hands to catch the football. Does an excellent job boxing out receivers. Out jumps defenders for the football and makes acrobatic catches. Hard worker and know for his good character and being a good teammate. Got more productive each season at Miami.

CONS: Not a great route runner and timed speed will be a question, but he has no problems getting down the field. Tends to round his routes off and rely on his ability to out muscle receivers. Can run into spats of trying to run before he catches the football. Isn’t great at picking up yards after the catch and breaking tackles.
