BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference honors the past two years. Posted 85/5/5 as a senior after junior totals included
54/9/6. Started his college career at Mississippi State.
POSITIVES: Hardin is a run-defending safety best making plays up the field or in the box. He's a marginal prospect who must make his
mark on special teams this summer to get out of camp.
NEGATIVES: Lacks top sideline-to-sideline range, and not fast to the flanks. Blows pass coverage assignments on occasion.
ANALYSIS: Nice-sized safety best making plays downhill. Patient, takes good angles to the action, and is aggressive in run defense.
Displays a sense of timing, gets vertical to defend the throw, and possesses good hands for the interception. Fluid changing
direction, and works well with cornerbacks.
