Notes:

The Texas prep saw action in 13 games his true freshman season as a reserve tight end and special-teams player in 2008. Caught six passes for 48 yards (8.0-yard average) and zero touchdowns in ’09 while playing in all 13 games (two starts). Started 11-of-14 games played in ’10 and grabbed 18-292-7 (16.2). Hauled in 27-381-2 (14.1) as a starter in all 14 contests in ’11.

Positives:

Well-proportioned build. Rare straight-line speed — is able to stretch the field vertically. Flashes playmaking ability (see 76-yard touchdown vs. Oklahoma State ’10). Finds soft spots in zones. Can extend and catch away from his body. Has a 36-inch vertical jump. Can position and get in the way. Lined up in three-point stance, split out and has special-teams experience. Good character. Durable and coachable.

Negatives:

Lacks ideal size and bulk strength to excel in line — gets outmuscled at the point of attack. Struggles to sustain (short on grip and finishing strength). Is not nasty. Average burst and hip flex. Is a bit linear and does not sink his weight fluidly. Needs to refine route running. Has concentration drops. Limited creativity after the catch. Average instincts. Not quick-handed or a natural catcher — late adjusting to the ball. 

Summary:

A lean, athletic, H-Back-sized detached pass catcher, Hanna is a developmental project who needs to get stronger, develop route savvy and play more consistently. Exceptional Combine performance elevated draft status.
