Pos: 
Small, explosive receiver and kick returner who was used on a rotational basis the past two seasons. Runs terrific routes, separates from defenders and usually makes the reception with his hands. Easily grabs the ball at full speed and makes the difficult over-the-shoulder reception down the field. Gets vertical and competes to come away with the grab. Impacts the game as a return specialist.
Neg: 
Small and loses out and battles. Unrefined in all of his receiver techniques. Does not show great awareness on the field. Drops too many catchable throws.
Analysis: 
Hardman is a terrific athlete who displayed flashes of ability for Georgia but never elevated his game. He's unpolished as a receiver and may get consideration at cornerback, but the bottom line is that Hardman must make an NFL roster off his ability to return kicks and punts.
