Before They Were Buffalo Bills: Leonard Hankerson

Watch Leonard Hankerson's highlights from St. Thomas Aquinas High School

Leonard Hankerson is looking to revive his NFL career with the Buffalo Bills. The wide receiver will compete for the team's third WR job after re-signing with the Bills in the offseason. Hankerson spent time with three teams in 2015, but he can find a permanent home in Buffalo with a productive season.

Before the NFL, Hankerson played his college ball at the University of Miami. At Miami, Hankerson caught 134 passes for 2,160 yards and 22 touchdowns. His most productive season came as a senior in 2010. That year he caught 72 passes for 1,156 yards and 13 touchdowns. 

Hankerson's career at St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida paved the way for the wide receiver to attend "The U." The footage above comes from Hankerson's junior year of high school. That season, Hankerson caught 28 passes for 606 yards and 14 touchdowns. He'd follow up that effort in his senior season by catching 39 passes for 803 yards and 14 touchdowns.
