Pos: 
Athletic linebacker who makes plays sideline to sideline and shows speed in any direction. Aggressive, slices between blocks to get up the field and sells out to defend the run. Instinctive, quick to read and anticipate the action and covers a lot of area on the field. Efficient, takes proper angles and gives outstanding effort in all areas. Gets depth on pass drops, easily runs 30 yards downfield and makes plays on the football in coverage against tight ends and running backs. Wraps up tackling.
Neg: 
Not a big or sturdy linebacker. Easily blocked from the action. Struggled with injuries in the past.
Analysis: 
Hansen is an athletic defensive prospect who previously saw time at both safety and quarterback. He projects to either weakside linebacker or the inside of a 3-4 defense, and Hansen could eventually develop into a starter on Sundays if he shows durability and continues to improve his game.
