Prospect Overview


I have posted a few similar posts in the past. You have probably realised by now how much I love to keep an eye out for late round sleepers. Here's another interesting guy to keep an eye on come draft day:

JAMES HANNA, TE, 6'4", 252lbs., University of Oklahoma

Possesses average size for the postion. Exhibits solid first step quickness down the seam and good speed. Tends to gear down when asked to get out of his breaks, but can be a sharper route runner in time. Possesses good range, At times will struggle to pluck off his frame. Looks natural running down the seam and making plays on the throw.

Is a coordinated run/pass blocker. Understands angles, extends his arms well and showcases the ability to bend and keep his pad level under him. Slides his feet well through the play and routinely can seal defensive ends from the football and stay engaged.

(as per National Football Post)

You might be asking.... but why sir are we talking about a tight ends??? We seem pretty set at the position. Well here's the thing. We just released Will Heller (cap casualty) and typically like to keep three TE's on the roster. I just don't see Nathan Overbay having that much potential.

Here's the deal with JAMES HANNA: He will be a late round pick... 6,7. He played in an offence that doesn't utilize the TE as a receiver very often. With the right coaching and the right system I could see him developing into a premier TE in this league. Here are his combine numbers:

40 yd. dash: 4.49...... yes... that isn't a typo (1st TE)
Vertical: 36" (1st TE)
3 cone: 6.76 (1st TE)

For a late round pick this guy could turn out to be a stud. And as a 3rd string TE on our roster why not take a chance.
