Hanna can catch the ball when it is thrown in his area. He is athletic, and can maneuver his body at full speed to reach around or over a defender to make a catch. He is an aware player who is reliable to pick up a first town. He has a torso that is tight and can be spun around to make a catch, then turn and run using his big body to roll over safeties. He understands how to run good routes. Actually running them at the next level will be a whole new story, however.


Hanna is not a very fast player and isn't athletic off the ball. He struggles when mauled at the line and that will be the scouting report on him at the next level: Get a bigger linebacker to disrupt his route early and prevent him from ever getting into space. He is good to catch a contested ball, but he isn't tough across the middle -- there were many times during the 2011 season when an oncoming safety gave him "alligator arms" and he was caught ducking under balls to avoid the hit. He is better when a guy is running with him in man coverage and he doesn't have to worry about a big blow, but the fact that he doesn't display toughness down field or when working as a blocker on the line makes him a limited prospect overall.
