Browns trade back into 2nd Round and Draft Hardesty


The Browns traded back into the 2nd round  in today’s draft for Monterio Hardesty, from Tennessee. The Runing Back stands at 6′ O” and weighs 225 Ilbs. The Browns gave up two fifth round picks to move up eleven spots. Hardesty will be a change of pace back for the Browns.


Hardesty is an accomplished college runner that may struggle to bring the same kind of production to the next level. He is not quite big enough to be a power back and lacks the all out speed and explosion to be a game breaker. He does a good job of running behind his pads and shows balance on contact to break tackles and will fight for yards after the first hit. He shows a decent burst through the hole but lacks a second gear to pull away once he gets to the next level. He is a patient runner that does a good job of following his blockers and seeing things develop.
