Hardin was drafted despite suffering a shoulder injury and missing out his entire 2011 college football season at Oregon State. The Hawaii native is listed as 6’3″ 217 lbs and played some time at the cornerback position in college.
Hardin has a reputation of being a very physical player on defense but has been held back on playing time due to injuries he has suffered since being drafted. We will keep you updated on any future roster changes as news breaks.
