2014 Redskins Camp Battles – Wide Receivers

4 of 6

3.  Leonard Hankerson – Age: 25, 6-2, 211


  • At 6’2, Hankerson is one of the tallest receivers on a team that lacks size at the position.
  • He clearly has the talent to start as he had become a starter opposite Pierre Garcon last season.
  • Showed the potential of having a breakout season last year until he was injured.


  • Hankerson Is still recovering from a torn ACL, and he may need more time to come back fully.
  • Even if he’s cleared to practice, he might not be at his peak performance to stand out from others.

Hankerson may be a candidate for the PUP list, as he may need more time to recover from his knee injury.  If he has to go all out right now to secure a roster spot, he may not be able to do that.  However, Hankerson’s size gives him an advantage, as he’s one of the Redskins bigger receivers.
