Johnathan Hankins, DT, Ohio State Buckeyes (6-3, 320 pounds)

The New York Giants continue their long history of drafting the best player on their board.  Hankins is a massive defensive tackle with the strength to anchor at the point of attack and the athleticism to defeat blocks when he plays with leverage and uses his hands aggressively.  An excellent value pick, Hankins has as much physical talent as any defensive tackle in the draft and could end up being a star if the Giants can get him to play with passion and intensity on every snap.
