2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
James Hanna, TE, Oklahoma
In spite of running a very fast 4.49 40-yard dash and having a successful combine, Hanna doesn't play up to his speed. He doesn't block very well and can really only seal the edge. Wouldn't be able to block consistently against NFL talent one-on-one.
He must learn to become a better route runner. Being more crisp and not "rounding the corners" will create more separation and improve his short-area agility. His speed will be useful if he can show a willingness to play special teams. As it stands, he lacks the bulk to be an effective in-line blocker. Hanna's ability to make difficult catches is his best attribute. He has good body control and can catch the ball away from his body.
Hanna could play a strong role in the red zone. He does well to go up and catch the ball at its highest point. Seven of his 18 receptions in 2011 went for a touchdown.
