How did Hardy fall to the 6th round in the 2010 NFL Draft?

He had character concerns and tbh they have shown a few times. He's a ticking time bomb. So far he's only blown up Drew Brees and Matt Ryan.

I'm going from forum to forum over the interwebs and I see threads popping up on the Patriots, Bengals, Jets etc. message boards from 2010. All of them are saying late first early second. What made him fall so far? Keep in mind with his injury history he was still expected to go in the second round.

 

So happy he fell though. Steal of 2010.

Smitty had some concerns too.  :)

At one point I remember a Sports Illustrated article that had him pegged as the #1 overall pick prior to his last year in college. 

 

here's the link: http://sportsillustr...009/04/28/2010/

 

My mistake it wasn't really a mock but just a prospect rating type deal.

Take Jordan Poyer this year for example. One of the best corners in the nation, projected anywhere from the late first to early third, was coming off an injury and had concerns, and ends up going undrafted or something.

he had a bad foot in his junior season and only played 8 games. the coaches wanted him to play injured. he didn't. that's essentially it.

 

plus he's a bit of an oddball and marches to his own beat. some thought that this would be a big problem.

I remember that too. Not sure if it was SI but I remember hearing him in the conversation as the #1 overall pick.

Smitty was viewed as a Thoroughbred with aggression issues.

Hardy was viewed as a 1 year wonder with injury issues. Folks were also concerned with his motor, and of course there was that "He different" thing as well.
