Player Overview

Hawkins arrived in Austin in the spring of 2012 and quickly earned the starting LT job, starting 11 games protecting the quarterback?s blind side last season. He played two seasons at Northwest Community College where he didn?t allow a sack in his 19 starts at the JUCO level. While he doesn?t have elite height and length for the tackle position, Hawkins showed enough in his first season at the FBS level to catch the eyes of scouts around the NFL. (9/6/13)

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Hawkins stays light on his feet with good lateral quickness and shuffle to protect the edge, doing a nice job squaring up defenders with natural body control and coordination. Hawkins looks comfortable pulling and blocking on the move with the athleticism to get to the second level and clear the road down the field. WEAKNESSES: He has a narrow base and too often gets caught lunging and whiffing at his targets, falling off balance and struggling to recover. Hawkins utilizes angles and flashes an aggressive demeanor at the point of attack, but has room to improve his timing off the snap and his overall discipline. --Dane Brugler
