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

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?

I wouldn't be suprised if our 6th round pick this year has a promising career on the other side of the ball.

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.

 

And Carson Palmer

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:

Silly post, Peppers is far more talented and that should not even be up for discussion, Hardy's drive is what makes him special, Peppers pure athleticism and talent is was made him special.

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.

Yup. Poyer is gonna be a steal for the Eagles.
