All-American in both 2007 and 2008, and earned Freshman All-America honors in 2006 with Ole Miss...Hardy logged just 16 total stops in 2009, but 6.5 of those came behind the line of scrimmage, five against quarterbacks...Missed the final three regular-season games after undergoing surgery on his fractured left wrist the second week of November...Slowed at the start of his senior season after undergoing foot surgery...Junior campaign saw Hardy coming off the bench and being rotated in and out of the lineup as he recovered from surgery on the fifth metatarsal of his left foot in the offseason...Hardy's best season came in 2007 when he posted career highs in tackles (63), TFLs (18.0) and sacks (10.0), finishing his career with a total of 26.5 sacks over the course of 40 games for the Rebels...Has drawn comparisons to the likes of Julius Peppers and Mario Williams because of the entire package, but might never realize his full potential if he cannot escape the pitfalls of so many injuries.
