ESPN - [Full Article]

Falcons beat writer Vaughan McClure says Leonard Hankerson is "on the rise": He was signed as a free agent primarily because of his familiarity with offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's scheme from Washington. Hankerson made plays that make you wonder why he wasn't more productive with the Redskins. Then again, he had a serious knee injury in 2013 that stunted his growth. If Hankerson continues to shine on Sundays like he did in practice, then the Falcons might be unstoppable in the passing game.

Fantasy Impact: 

It appears that Hankerson is in line for WR3 duties behind Julio Jones and Roddy White, so he'd be a very cheap handcuff for either on draft day. There has been a consistent buzz about him during the offseason.
