2. Second round, 49th overall: Johnathan Hankins, DT, Ohio State

For the third year in the last four, the Giants used a second round pick on a massive defensive tackle with a ton of talent. In 2010, they picked Linval Joseph, who has developed into one of the best DTs in the NFL. In 2011, they drafted Marvin Austin out of North Carolina, who has yet to make his mark on the NFL. Hankins joins a crowded group in New York but he could be the most talented player of anyone they have at the position. He’s very athletic for his size and has the ability to take up space/blockers as well as collapse the pocket and make plays behind the line of scrimmage. Going into last season, he was considered a potential top 10 selection. He needs some work on his conditioning and stamina, but I think Hankins can develop into a very good starting defensive tackle in the NFL.
