http://www.realredskins.com/

Rich Tandler found a site names Rotoviz.com. They are a fantasy football site that is projecting what 3rd year wrs will break out this year. They used yards per target and compared that with 2nd year wrs who made that jump in the past from year 2 to year 3.

The site thinks that Hank will break out this year and Rich agrees, he says Hank passes the eye and stat test. Pro Football Focus said that Hankerson had only four drops while being targeted 59 times. Moss had six drops on 64 targets.

So much for Hank dropping everything right? He only had 4 drops on the year! Wink

When Hank came into the NFL he's been reported as saying he didn't realize the hard work and dedication it to took to make it in the nfl as most young players don't. Then, on top of that, his hip injury set him back in his rookie year and in his 2nd offseason, he didn't have a rookie offseason in 2011 because of the Owner's locking the players out. If he focuses on the little things and gets truly polished as a wr with better routes and gets more comfortable with Rg3 or Cousins, this could be a special year for Hank.

But what about this Hankerson kid? In the Decker article we named Hakeem Nicks, Jordy Nelson, and Dwayne Bowe as prototypes for the ideal #1 receiver. We’ve just established that Hankerson can produce at an elite level, but does his athleticism match up with those studs?

In 2011 Hankerson became the first Redskins rookie receiver to top 100 yards in a game since 2001. Unfortunately he sustained an injury in that same game that cost him the rest of his rookie year. Last season he quietly hauled in 543 yards, which finished third on the team and just 90 yards behind leading receiver Pierre Garcon. Now, consider that he will catch passes from RG3 for the next few seasons. The warning signs are there. Does he have your attention?

to be honest, I would like to see him become more of a threat opposite Garcon. He was 3rd round pick, its time he started becoming that go to guy. Working with RG3 and Cousins will get him more familiar with their throws and playing with that in mind, in should make him even more comfortable. But I dont want to see us draft another WR when we have some young guys that should be doing the job all ready.

While I'd absolutely love it if Hank did, I'm still a little skeptical he will. We can only hope.

I just don't know about Hank. He had a great game or two and then just disappears. On the positive he is a big, a very good blocker and has improved his concentration. But he gets poor separation, seems like he is running in slow motion (except on that one fly pattern where he was wide open). I'd love to know his 40 time now and he is one of the slowest receivers into and out of their cuts. Most concerning to me is he doesn't seem to use his physical tools to his advantage and seems kind of passive fighting the DB for the ball. With his size he should never have a smaller CB outfight him for the ball.
Prediction- Wither he has a real breakoutyear (meaning beats out Morgan as the number 2) or this is his last year with the Skins. We either trade him next offseason or release him.

what you just described is a young wr who was a rookie last year in terms of playing time. He will be better this year and should prove himself to be our second best wr option. Then in 2014 he will be the true #2 opposite Garcon and Robinson or Briscoe will be #3 unless we draft someone else next draft or in 2014. Our Wr core is perfectly fine for the present and future.
