2015 NFL DRAFT

Ohio State DT Johnathan Hankins to enter 2013 NFL Draft

By Dane Brugler | NFLDraftScout.com Senior Analyst

Ohio State junior defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins will forgo his final season of eligibility at Ohio State and enter the 2013 NFL Draft. He is projected to be among the top players drafted at his position, possibly in the top-15 picks of the draft.

"I have decided, with the support of my family, to forgo my senior season at Ohio State in order to enter the NFL Draft," Hankins said Monday. "I will always be grateful for the family I have gained here at Ohio State."

Hankins ranks as NFLDraftScout.com's No. 2 defensive tackle for April's draft and the No. 9 prospect overall.

"I want to thank coach Meyer, coach Vrabel and strength coach Marotti for bringing the best out of me as a football player and person, and for their constant support. I also want to thank coach Tressel and coach Heacock for recruiting me and giving me an opportunity to be a part of this great school and great program."

A native of Dearborn Heights, Mich., Hankins finished the 2012 season with 55 tackles, 4.0 tackles for loss and 1.0 sack, earning First Team All-Big Ten honors. Although his statistics were down from a year ago, Hankins rarely left the field and was asked to do much more during his junior season. He finishes his collegiate career with 138 tackles, 16.5 tackles for loss and 5.0 sacks.
