Montario Hardesty   #20 RB

Height: 6-0   Weight: 225   Age: 27

Born: 2/1/1987 New Bern , NC

College: Tennessee

Experience: 4th season

High School: New Bern HS [NC]









Draft 2010

Pick No.59

Selected By: Cleveland Browns

Round: 2

Pick (Overall): 27 (59)

Pick Analysis: 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.
