Plays with a high motor. Anticipates the play well and has good instincts. Good short area quickness helps in coverage as well as ability to read the QB. Sticks well with TE/RB in man coverage. Solid in zone coverage. Flows to the play, usually ending up around the ball. Decent timing for get off on pass rush
Not a physical tackler. Wrap and drag style and usually gets help to finish the play. Doesn't particularly make his way through traffic well and can get stuck on blocks. Can overrun misdirection plays as he flows hard and does not change direction quick enough to recover. Doesn't close out well and gets beat in space.
Hansford will need to demonstrate in the offseason workouts that his coverage skills are needed for a team to be willing to draft him. As it stands, he seems to be a bit too light to play in the box and not quick enough to hang with slot receivers or more athletic RBs. Has shown flashes of being able to rush the QB but needs better leverage. Best suited for a situational role that puts him in a pass coverage with the occasional rush opportunities. Could find a role on special teams units with his motor and effort.
