Ron Rivera has done a lot of work with Hardy mentally. There were points in 2011 that he was pulled out of games and severely underperforming. I think the concerns that let him fall so far in the draft were valid, and I think on a lot of teams without a figure like Rivera he would be struggling and lacking motivation.

Mostly injuries.

But with that said, take a minute and imagine the average NFL scout / personnel guy sitting down and interviewing "The Kraken".

How do ya think that scene plays out? :unsure:

" 1) Greg Hardy/DE/Mississippi: Hardy gave serious consideration to entering April's draft but made the right choice staying in school. He's impacts the game in a variety of ways and possesses unlimited potential.

 

 

Look at how much money that cost him!!!

I gotta feeling his chance to make up for it is coming fairly soon.

It was his destiny to fall to Carolina and make everyone forget about Julius Peppers.

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.

Yeah, it you follow him on fb and Twitter that might be a slight understatement.. He's pretty out there, but I think that serves him well on the field.

Injury, motor/work ethic and character concerns.

 

The crazy thing is that Hardy was considered worthy of being taken #1 overall. He certainly played like a Top 10 DE last year after all. He's not an athletic freak like Peppers but Greg is still a terror once the ball is snapped.

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.
