Bio: Started at offensive tackle as a senior and awarded all-conference honors. First-team center the prior two seasons.
Positives: Hard-working, rugged blocker best in a small area. Plays with good lean, immediately gets his hands into defenders, then controls them at the point. Solid position blocker on the second level. Stays square and keeps defenders in front of him. Attacks assignments, yet at the same time, an alert lineman who works well with teammates.
Negatives: Lacks adjustment and not effective in motion. Does not display great explosion into blocks. More of a mauler than leverage lineman.
Analysis: A high-effort player who can be used at several spots on the offensive line, Hangartner is a limited athlete with marginal upside for the next level. Has the ability to add bulk to his frame, which could help him catch on as an inexpensive backup and utility lineman.

Bio: Three-year starter who also saw action with the first team as a freshman. Senior totals included 76/1/4 after a junior campaign of 80/1/ 1.
Positives: Size/speed prospect with marginal cover skills. Quick moving up the field in run support, strong at the point of attack and wraps up ball handlers tackling. Flashes on the scene and displays a burst of closing speed. Adequate job reading the action.
Negatives: Lacks top sideline-tosideline range and late arriving in pass coverage. Hesitant when the ball is in the air and does not have a great break on the throw.
Analysis: A prospect who looks the part, but does not always play to it, Emanuel has yet to fully translate his athletic skills onto the football field. A long-term project whose mental instincts are far behind his athletic abilities.
