Greg HardyHt/Wt: 6-5/255 lbs
Greg Hardy's Player ProfileHardy epitomizes what it means to be an enigma. At times, he's using his first-round ability as a pass rusher to terrorize opposing quarterbacks. At others, he's uninspired and consequently unproductive. He's also injury prone and has spent his share of quarters loitering on the sidelines. Add those three factors together and you'll get a bright red flag with "BUST" written all over it.
Physically, Hardy fits the mold of the modern-day undersized rush end. He combines a 6-foot-4, 260-pound frame with a good burst off the ball and sideline-to-sideline speed. When he's healthy and his inner fire is burning, he's capable of periods of dominance against venerable SEC competition. On the other hand, he often just goes through the motions and makes you forget he even occupies a spot on the Rebels roster. He can give you three sacks in a game, or three games' worth of anonymity.
Hardy is the ultimate "boom-or-bust" guy. He could play 12 years in the NFL, or be out of the league after 3. He could make six Pro Bowls, or not even reach that number in career sacks. He has first-round talent, but his seventh-round motor and propensity for getting hurt could drop him to--or even beyond--round 3 of the 2010 NFL Draft.
