"Converted safety to LB is a playmaker, playing with an ideal motor and toughness, but remains undersized and injury prone."
Converted safety to LB has range, change of direction and toughness. Relentless with a great motor. Confident and experienced in coverage. Solid ball skills. Adept in the box and in space.
Leaky tackler. Undersized and gets bodied despite toughness. Takes on blocks but doesn't have the strength to quickly come off.
Over aggressive and can take bad angles. Suffered numerous injuries throughout career including surgery for a herniated disk in January.
Hansen pound for pound is one of the toughest players in this class. In fact, he played through a herniated disk for the latter part of the season.
He made a successful convert to LB as a senior from safety but he remains undersized and under-powered for the position. And his body has taken a beating as well, enduring a season ending lower leg injury and that lower back injury.
He compensates for his size with aggression and hustle but too often misses tackles as a result. Always around the ball and an asset in coverage but can get caught up in the trash inside. He's got solid development potential if he continues to add power and size and stays out of the trainer's room.
Surgery for that herniated disk will keep him from participating in any pre draft drills and almost certainly knock him into UDFA territory.
