Professional career[edit]

Dallas Cowboys[edit]

Hanna was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the sixth round (186th overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft. Although he became a core special teams player, his progress in the offense was slow until the 2014 season, when he found a role as a point-of-attack blocker and helped DeMarco Murray become the NFL leading rusher.
