07/09/2012 - Top-five Kansas prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 1. OT Tanner Hawkinson (6-6, 295)...Since 2009 Kansas has had three head coaches and several quarterbacks under center, but one constant has been at the tackle position where Hawkinson has started since his redshirt freshman season. He moves back to the left side in 2012 and has already been named a senior captain. Hawkinson arrived in Lawrence as a four-star tight end recruit, redshirting in 2008 and moving to defensive end before settling in at offensive tackle. He started every game at left tackle as a redshirt freshman and sophomore (24 games) before moving to the right side last season. Hawkinson started all 12 games at right tackle in 2011 as a junior, but moved back to left tackle this past spring and is the most experienced player on the current roster. He has done a nice job adding nearly 70-pounds since enrolling at Kansas, but he still plays light and is too easily overmatched by defensive linemen at the point of attack. Hawkinson is a mobile blocker with good-enough footwork, but too often forgets his lower half and overextends at the waist, falling off balance. Despite entering the 2012 season as a three-year starter, Hawkinson still needs more seasoning and currently projects as a day three prospect. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
