Johnathan Hankins primed for breakout year
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(7/8/14) Giants defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins is poised for a breakout season in his second year, according to the team's website. With Linval Joseph's departure, Hankins will play a lot more and "provide upper-echelon play at defensive tackle down in and down out," the website said.
A second-round pick out of Ohio State, Hankins played in 11 games last year, making 16 tackles.
Giants ready to use rookies along defensive line
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(10/2/13) With the Giants' defensive line banged up, coach Tom Coughlin hinted Wednesday rookies Damontre Moore and Johnathan Hankins could factor into the rotation Week 5 vs. Philadelphia.
"Moore will get an opportunity to contribute," Coughlin said, per The Star-Ledger. "He has done a nice job on special teams (two tackles). He has good energy. Hopefully, we can build on that."
Hankins, a second-round pick, has been inactive for the first four games.
"I like Hankins’ work a week ago (in practice)," Coughlin said. "I thought he was a really difficult guy for us to block from an offensive standpoint. I really felt like Jonathan was ready to contribute and I feel the same way right now. So I’m looking forward to watching him play."
