Hawkins has an athletic body type with a quick first step and aggression to match too. The 2021 defensive end does a nice job slide by blocks and is pretty flexible in how he finds ways to get by. Nice tackler, doesn’t always hit low enough, but does a good job reacting to the ball carrier. Hawkins is patient playing the read option, and uses his quickness to disrupt whoever ends up with the football. Getting strong in his lower body will definitely help with finishing off his tackles, but in general, the 2021 recruit is a dynamic athlete with a ton of pass rushing upside.
