Kirby Smart was able to fend off Alabama, Auburn, Clemson and many other programs. Hardman initially leaned towards playing defense when he got to Athens and was actually listed as a cornerback his freshman year though he didn’t see much playing time. Hardman made to the switch to WR in his sophomore season because the coaches thought he added more value to the receiving and return game. They were right. Georgia’s passing offense didn’t light up the stat sheet in terms of total yards but Hardman has been one of Georgia’s leading receivers the past two seasons. He’s also been their punt and kick return guy and had really good success this part season with his return averages. He was a big play threat during his career at Georgia and believes he can help a team in the same way in the NFL. Hardman confirmed his game changing speed at the Combine and will be on the radars of teams looking for a playmaker with versatility in the late rounds. StrengthsElite speed, good athleticism for the position.Explosive player who gets off the LOS quickly. Has the speed and athleticism to bust zone coverage in a hurry and work the intermediate and deep levels on the field. On shorter routes a threat with the ball in his hand as a RAC receiver. Moved around frequently in the Georgia offense can work out of the backfield slot and outside, put in motion to tip off and find soft spots in coverage. Especially dangerous on slot and routes that move him into the seam deep. Not afraid to get in the mix as a blocker.Added value as a kick and punt returner.WeaknessesHands are alarmingly inconsistent at times. He isn’t a natural pass catch and needs to work on his technique and concentration. Short arms have him alligator catches at times. Ran a limited route tree (go, slant, out hitch) and may be asked to do more in the NFL. Routes need greater attention to detail and crispness.Doesn’t do well with contested catches and it looks like he needs to be open to haul it in reliably for the most part.Let’s see his work:More Mecole Hardman videosTo highlight the player's measurements, use:How He Would Fit On The Redskins?Hardman can certainly be an option for the Redskins to compete in the slot. He may go earlier than I have projected because of his athletic gifts but when I watch him I see a really raw receiver. It’s slightly understandable because he’s only spent two years at the position and he is young but you would have liked to see a bit more consistency from him over his career as a receiver. He’ll need to work on the #1 duty of a WR: catching the ball. Additionally he needs to work on the #2 duty of a WR route running. It’s a tall order but Hardman could prove quite the value if he develops in these areas. His athletic ability also lets the Redskins do more creative things on offense if they so choose. What he looks just fine at in the meantime is a return man. The Redskins badly need one of those and Hardman has improved over his career in his area. In open space he has really good vision and he can get chuck yards and break a few as a returner. If drafted by the Redskins Hardman will have some competition from Trey Quinn in the slot but may eventually win out because of his athleticism. LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — This was all kinds of embarrassing for the Washington Redskins, from the offense to the defense to the special teams, from the poor plays to the face-palm penalties, from the numbers on the scoreboard to the thousands of empty seats in the stands.Facing a last-place team that had nothing to play for — but appeared to have more fans in the stadium Sunday than the home team did — coach Jay Gruden’s Redskins dropped their fourth consecutive game to fall below .500 with a 40-16 loss to the New York Giants.Asked whether he’s concerned about his job status, Gruden replied: “My job’s in jeopardy every week. So I’ve just got to go about and do the best I can, get these guys ready to go, and we’ll continue to do that.”Third-string quarterback Mark Sanchez, playing for Washington (6-7) because of injuries to Alex Smith and Colt McCoy, made his first NFL start since 2015 and played like it, going 6 for 14 for 38 yards and two interceptions, including a pick-6.“It was tough sledding, for sure,” Sanchez said. “That’s easy to figure out.”The score was 40-0 in the third quarter when Gruden yanked Sanchez, whose passer rating was 10.7 and whose longest completion went for 10 yards.A reporter wanted to know what Gruden thought “went wrong” for Sanchez.“What DID work?” came Gruden’s answer. “There was nothing that worked. Nothing worked. So everything did not work.”Sanchez was replaced by another recently unemployed player Quinton Dunbar Jersey , Josh Johnson, who threw his first NFL pass since 2011 and helped the hosts score all of their points in garbage time. Gruden said after the game he would prepare Johnson to start next week at Jacksonville.The Redskins were guilty of two penalties on the initial punt of the game by New York (5-8), setting a pattern: Washington was flagged 15 times for 135 yards.“Unacceptable,” said defensive back and punt returner Greg Stroman.There was a 5-yarder on Washington’s offense for having 12 men in the huddle early. Right tackle Morgan Moses was called twice for false starts in the first half, giving him 12 accepted penalties this season, the most for any player in the league. Late, after a 31-yard pass from Johnson to Josh Doctson would have set up Washington with a first-and-goal at the 3, the receiver was penalized 15 yards for taunting a defender. On the very next play, Johnson was picked off. Then, with the Giants about to punt on fourth-and-3, Washington had 12 men on the field for the punt, so New York got to keep the ball.There were boos repeatedly from a crowd listed at 57,347 — about 25,000 under the stadium’s capacity — and all the blue Giants jerseys in the stands made it “feel like we’re at home” to New York linebacker Alec Ogletree.Competing against a Redskins offensive line that included four tackles and an injured center, a mediocre Giants pass rush that entered the game with 19 sacks — an average of about 1½ per game — already was up to five for the day after Washington’s first possession of the second half.A so-so Giants offense that was missing star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. did whatever it wanted most times it had the ball and put up 34 points by halftime, only four fewer than its previous highest total for an entire game this season.Rookie running back Saquon Barley gained 170 yards on only 14 carries, including a 78-yard TD, plus added another 27 yards on four catches. Eli Manning, written off by many earlier this year, looked quite competent, completing 14 of 22 passes for 197 yards and three touchdowns before taking the fourth quarter off.“It’s tough to deal with. It really is. It’s unfortunate,” Gruden said. “That product we put on the field today is not a reflection of the guys’ work during the week and in practice. However, it did look bad.”
