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

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.

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.

I liked what Dwan Edwards said...

"When you first meet him, you think to yourself, 'hmmm, he might be a little off'. But after you've had the chance to get to know him and work with him, then you say 'yeah, he's a little off' :unsure:

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.

 

Hardy may not be a freak like pep but he is still pretty damn athletic for a 285 pound DE and his motor doesn't ever stop not to mention he plays meaner than hell and pep was a big pussy.

It wasn't really his injury.  Played a part but the biggest thing is he was a mental nut.  Everyone figured there was just something off about him, which threw them off and he was resented because of it.  A lot of people just blamed this on him having supposedly poor work ethic.  Which maybe was true but isn't applicable today.

If peppers had half the tenacity and fire of Hardy... What could he have been?
