BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter who impacted the program upon his arrival. Senior-year rushing totals included 265/1361/14 when he also added 8 receptions. Junior-year totals included 318/1562/14 on the ground with 17 receptions. Earned All-Conference honors as a junior and senior and was named an All-American in 2006.

POSITIVES: Intelligent, instinctive ball-carrier who gives great effort. Displays vision, finds the cut-back lanes, and picks his way through the trash to gain yardage. Consistently slips tackles and squirms through the small creases of the defense. Avoids defenders and keeps his feet moving up the field. Tough and will play while injured. Instinctive, showing great awareness in all aspects of the game. Aggressive, effective as a blocker, and has dependable hands.

NEGATIVES: Marginal playing speed and cannot turn the corner. Undersized and not a ball-carrier who breaks tackles or picks up yardage off initial contact.

ANALYSIS: Hart was an ultra-productive player on the college level. He lacks great size/speed numbers for the next level, yet his intensity, versatility, and work ethic will help him find a spot in the NFL for years to come.
