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

63 posts in this topic

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.  :)

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.

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. 

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.

    • I would give anything to have 23 year old Jonathan Stewart on our Roster.. as years have gone by, I feel his potential has been wasted behind DeAngelo Williams, who in his own right was a beast for us in his prime..    As we wait eagerly and impatiently for our pick, let us remember and appreciate the beast that stewart was..( still is) ..   He was so explosive..  bouncy...  flexible.. powerful.. fast...      BEAST...  I became a fan in 2003 because I won a panther football in 1st grade at the end of that year for good behavior and learning my 1st grade stuff.. the following year..  I watched them in the Super Bowl in 2004... became a fan,, in my childhood, i grew and grew on them.. it solidified in 2008 when i watched double trouble GAPE the Bucs Live.. my first Panthers game.. what a night to solidify my fandom.. i received monday night tickets as a gift for getting all A's my 8th grade year...   since, ive seen a Panther great leave in DeAngelo.... but Stewart remained..   (some deangelo Highlights remain.. its OK, hes a panther great *turned sour*    but non the less)         i had SO MUCH PRIDE in our run game...  every madden i owned i made sure double trouble had their share...   and then there was Stewart.. the young, bouncy, fast guy... he turned tough...  he turned into a vet... a MoFo who will take YOU OUT.. carrying our ROCK along with CAM...     and Then, the best Expirience we have all experienced......    #2015     And i had so much pride, FINALLY.... Stewart was recognized......             A recoil year in 2016...            And I really believe there is a revival in 2017 of double trouble.......    #Fournette   except there isnt a dead roster... we have a Loaded roster, that will WIN...  winning with Cam Newton...  Stewart.. and ....         Let the Carolina GAPING run game live on folks...  I love the PAnthers like all of you... heres to 2017.
