Chad Hansen

Strengths:

  • Awareness
  • Body control
  • YAC
  • Natural ball-tracker
  • Decent speed
  • Willing run blocker

Analysis: Chad Hansen was a late bloomer who didn’t stand out on his high school team until his senior year. Idaho State was the only school to make a scholarship offer,and after a successful season there he transferred to Cal and stood out immediately. He has some talent after catch on wide receiver screens. His drive off the line and into his routes is consistent no matter which level he is going to work. Good awareness near sidelines. Able to drop his feet in-bounds when crowded against the boundary. Plays with good strength and physicality when mugged in his routes. Has fluid, powerful strides to burst past cornerbacks on vertical routes. Natural ball-tracker. Plus body control for ball adjustments in any direction. Hands are strong and can secure in traffic.  Hansen gives physical, extended effort as run-blocker punching into cornerbacks frame and locking out.

Weaknesses:

  • Play strength
  • Route running
  • Needs to create more separation
  • Played in the opposite of a pro system at Cal

Analysis: Chad Hansen needs some knee bend coming off the line at the snap– he is upright off the snap and into his routes. Is eventual into breaks and allows cornerback time to gear down and transition back to the ball. Can be jammed up by strong press corners. Doesn’t create enough consistent separation with his intermediate routes. The offense at Cal does not translate well to the NFL, his route running tree was extremely basic and he will need some seasoning in the NFL to move at full speed.

NFL Comparison: Mohamed Sanu

Draft Projection: Round 3
