I think Hankins is still a very productive 4-3 DT as well. He's not going to be Sapp type and get a lot of sacks, but he can still be very productive. Remember the Vikings having a great line a few years ago with the giant pair Williams they had clogging the middle? I see Hankins as a Pat Williams type of player. Just a big nasty force in the middle who is going to stop the run and demand double teams. I'd rather have Richardson or Floyd because I love their upside, but Hankins isn't a bad consolation if we are going DT.
