While your mock is pretty good, I would have second thoughts about Hankins. JMO, but I think either Jessie Williams or Jenkins would be better at NT.
Weaknesses: Hankins relies too much on his upper-body strength at times and needs to play with consistent leverage. He uses his body too much and needs to consistently utilize his hands and limbs.
Hankins doesn't always play smart with several penalties on his resume, including a late hit on the quarterback (vs. Michigan State in 2012). He tends to wear down throughout the course of a game and give streaky effort, looking fatigued and noticeably taking plays off.
We can't afford a Dwyer at NT, looking to come out because of fatigue.
McShay sucks, so by way of the transitive property, Shawn's mock now sucks too. :p
