Greg Hardy

School: Mississippi
Position: DE
Bio: Moved into the starting lineup as a freshman. Awarded All-Conference and all-American honors as a sophomore. Played in nine games last season, totaling 16/6.5/5. Struggled with a fractured wrist and underwent surgery to repair the damage in November. Junior totals included 18/9.5/8.5, when he was awarded All-Conference honors. Struggled with a foot injury during this season and underwent two separate surgeries to repair the damage. Career numbers of 64 tackles and 10 sacks came during his sophomore season.
Positive: Explosive defender who displays the ability to take over games and create an impact from the defensive line. Possesses great first-step quickness, immediately alters his angle of attack and fluid moving in every direction of the field. Loses no momentum when he changes direction, fast off the edge, and can bend then chase the action from the back side. Keeps his feet moving on contact, forceful up the field, and works his hands throughout the action. Flashes power with the ability to knock blockers off the line, while also displaying a good inside move wedging through the small creases.
Negative: Struggles getting off the initial block and will be out-positioned by large offensive tackles. Has shown a lot of inconsistency in his game the past two seasons, primarily due to injuries. Not considered a hard worker or a self-starter.
Analysis: Hardy has displayed the ability to be a disruptive force and a game changer on the defensive line. He has all the makings to be an impact player, yet injuries and at times, attitude, have seemingly gotten in the way of his development. Hardy offers a tremendous amount of upside potential, but he must stay healthy and truly dedicate himself to football year round if he's to have a productive career at the next level.
