A former walk-on at East Carolina, Hardy has been the Pirates’ leader in receptions and receiving yards in each of his three seasons with the program. He was voted first team All-Conference USA for the second straight year in 2013, after totaling 114 catches for 1284 yards (11.3 avg) and eight touchdowns for the season. Hardy exhibits excellent polish and quickness as a route runner, consistently separating from coverage to give his quarterback an open target. He is a natural hands catcher with exceptional ball skills, showing the ability to adjust to errant throws, making even the toughest catches look routine. A talented punt returner, Hardy is an elusive ball carrier who can make defenders miss and slip open field tackles. He is a smart player who is quick to recognize the blitz and break off his route to give his quarterback a safety outlet. Despite his size, Hardy displays good effort and technique as a blocker. If he stays healthy, there is little reason to believe Hardy won’t hold every career receiving record at East Carolina by the end of his senior year. -Jeremy Hyde, 5/15
