The Atlanta Falcons’ great 2015 NFL Draft continues with the selection of wide receiver Justin Hardy out of East Carolina. What do you think of the selection?
With additions coming on defense in the opening two rounds with edge rusher Vic Beasley and cornerback Jalen Collins, GM Thomas Dimitroff has now added two players on offense with running back Tevin Coleman and now Hardy.
Hardy is a talented receiver and fits well in the fourth round. In four seasons with East Carolina, Hardy caught 387 passes for 4,541 yards and 35 touchdowns. The Falcons’ passing game was already strong with Matt Ryan and Julio Jones, and the offense would have been ready to roll with the addition of Coleman alone, but it’s hard not to like the addition of Hardy.
What do you think of the pick? Did the Falcons make the right move addressing the wide receiver position in the fourth round? Or should have they gone to defense?
Here are some responses coming from Twitter:
"Roddy White, Julio Jones, and Justin Hardy"
"Falcons select Justin Hardy…yea we got a steal. Oh he from the 252 I almost forgot"
"Julio Jones Roddy White Justin Hardy"
Where will the Falcons go in the fifth round and beyond? The defense is looking stronger but there is still plenty of work to be done.
