Grading the Draft: Washington Redskins select Leonard Hankerson (79th overall)


The Redskins desperately need a wide receiver who can be a break out receiver.  Not a receiver who has “potential”.  So, with their third pick they went out a grabbed a quality receiver in Leonard Hankerson.

Grading the selection: B+

This is not a knock at all on Hankerson, but with some rumblings about the quality of pick they made with their first two picks, it seems they could have gotten a heralded stud with their first two picks.  Nevertheless, they have addressed a need and they will certainly have a young talent to work with this summer.

Grading the Player: A

The Redskins lacked a player with size, at 6’2 209 he can get separation in mid-air.  The Redskins lacked a three step possession receiver not named Chris Cooley, they got.  Hankerson also has awesome hands, and has the ability to go deep.  They have  tremendous athlete.

Grading the Pick: A-

It was a smart pick in a good spot, no complaints here.  As a matter of fact, we are exited about this pick.
