Pos: 
Instinctive run-defending linebacker who is a tackling machine. Efficient, remains disciplined with assignments and breaks down well. Takes proper angles to the action, flows well laterally and nicely redirects to ball carriers. Aggressive, does not shy away from contact and wraps up tackling. Moves fluidly in every direction of the field and effectively uses his hands to protect himself.
Neg: 
Ran poorly at the combine and shows limited burst and closing speed on film. Slow to react in coverage.
Analysis: 
Hanks was a terrific linebacker at New Mexico State but comes with limitations and projects as a two-down defender. He should be very effective on the inside of a 3-4 alignment and can stuff the run and occasionally play in zone coverage.
