The Lions could use an interior lineman on the offensive side of the ball as well. Taking Hanson with the 162nd overall pick would give the Lions a low-risk, high-reward type of guard.
Hanson is a good pass protector, but leaves some room for improvement in his overall game, especially in the run game. While he is by no means would be a guaranteed hit, but he would give the Lions a potential starter in his rookie year as a sixth-round pick.
Going into his senior season, Hanson had an 84.2 pass-blocking grade from PFF, the best of 2019. In 2019, Hanson allowed just 12 total pressures and zero sacks en-route to his best overall pass-blocking grade.
Hanson would not be guaranteed to come in and be a hit, but as a sixth-round pick, he would likely provide quality depth as a center and guard. If the Lions sign a starting guard in free agency then Hanson would be a solid depth pick who would bring intelligence and experience from one of the best offensive lines in college for a couple of years now.
