Much of the hype surrounding Leonard Hankerson leading up to the draft was the enormous size of his hands. The biggest hands in the draft? He used them to break all of the records held by Andre Johnson and Michael Irvin?
His pro debut on Friday was rather anti-climactic, however, as he ended the game with one reception on three targets, for eight yards.
But Hankerson shook all of that off today and said that he doesn’t feel any pressure going into Indianapolis.
“I don’t feel like I have to prove, I just have to go out there and make plays for the team,” he said. “Do my job, know my assignment, and just go have fun.”
That’s comforting to hear from a guy that the Redskins clearly have a lot of faith in. Most of the best players in the history of the game were just out there having fun.
