Oh and any thoughts on Taylor Thompson the SMU TE turned DE/OLB?
Hardin was previously a cornerback who is probably going to transition to safety due to his size. One team that could be very interested in him is Seattle, where Pete Carroll covets size in the defensive backfield. There have been some rumors that Carroll plans on moving Kam Chancellor to linebacker and drafting a safety. Hardin would be familiar to Carroll as a Pac-12 prospect.
One player off everyone's radar is Marty Markett from the University of South Carolina. Marty is a late round to undrafted FA prospect, but his pro day numbers were insane. 40.5 in vertical and a 10'10" broad jump. His 40 yard dash time wasn't recorded for public knowledge that I've found, but from what I've heard it was blazing quick. Something expected from a former track star and fastest Gamecock football player in spring practice (until Damiere Byrd came into town). Marty was consistent in his time at Carolina, never "wowing" anyone but playing effectively. Look for a team to see those numbers and take a shot on him. I listed off 5 other players who I think will surprise us all, check it out here:
Connor Dixon Duquesne, 6'5 220 pounds at his pro day with a 4.4. He has some speed but some of his routes remind me of Crabtree when he was at Tech, well doesn't compare to Crabtree but the way he was physical at getting yac. Should be a late round pick, is raw but he has size/speed/quickness and is physical. He started out as a qb for Michigan St but some type of shoulder problem forced him to switch positions and he transfered to Duquesne, averaged close to 20 ypc last year on 40 catches.
Tony Pauline recently said he thought that Hardin is a top 5 safety on NFL boards. Obviously it's just one man's opinion, but thought it was interesting. Certainly a big, fast guy with coverage skills so he's got to be intriguing, but that seems like a bit of a stretch. Who knows though.
