NMSU’s Hanks rising on NFL Draft boards


There were not many plays New Mexico State senior linebacker Terrill Hanks did not have a hand in throughout the 2018 season. Hanks recorded over 100 total tackles for the second consecutive season and tallied seven sacks for the Aggies last season. While NMSU did not have the season they would have hoped for as a team (3-9 record), the 6’2, 234 lbs. linebacker shined.

Hanks is in Mobile, Alabama this week for the 2019 Senior Bowl. He will be competing for the South Team on Saturday, January 26 at 12:30 P.M. MT. The game will air on NFL Network.

Throughout the week, Hanks has seen his stock rise as a result of Senior Bowl practices. Many analysts tab Hanks as a possible mid-round selection in the 2019 NFL Draft, which will be held in Nashville, Tennessee on April 25-27.

Last year, NMSU saw wide receiver Jaleel Scott get selected in the fourth round (pick no. 132) by the Baltimore Ravens.
