If Washington's WR Leonard Hankerson, a third-round pick in 2011, can make a full recovery, he presents a unique skill set. At 6 feet 2 and 211 pounds, he’s one of the biggest wide receivers on the roster. Only undrafted rookie Cody Hoffman is taller, at 6-4. Hankerson also has the ability to line up on the outside or in the slot.
But Hankerson also will be returning to a receiving unit that’s now more crowded and significantly improved. This offseason, Washington added speedster DeSean Jackson and slot receiver Andre Roberts. The Redskins also drafted Tulane’s Ryan Grant, and signed Hoffman, whom coaches have both praised this offseason.
Under Mike Shanahan, Hank was mostly used as a blocking receiver, so it's possible he could have more of an impact under Jay Gruden. However, he's yet to be cleared and could end up on the PUP list. Plus, he'll have to jump over some guys on the depth chart once he is healthy.
