5 Teams That Drafted Game Changing Speedsters


Recommended Posts

2015 NFL Draft: Falcons, Jets among teams that got faster Atlanta Falcons

Round 1, Pick 8: Vic Beasley, OLB

Round 2, Pick 42: Jalen Collins, CB

Round 3, Pick 73: Tevin Coleman, RB

Round 4, Pick 107: Justin Hardy, WR

Round 5, Pick 137: Grady Jarrett, NT

Round 7, Pick 225: Jake Rodgers, OT

Round 7, Pick 249: Akeem King, D

The Falcons are revamping their roster under new head coach Dan Quinn. The team added explosive athletes on both sides of the ball to enable them to attack opponents on the edges. Vic Beasley is the most dynamic pass rusher off the edge in this year's class, and the team added a pair of fleet-footed defensive backs in Jalen Collins and Akeem King to cover him up in the backend. Offensively, theFalcons nabbed an electric runner in Tevin Colemanand selected the ultra-quick Justin Hardy to wreak havoc from the slot.

"Weird seeing Hardy labeled ultra-quick. More smooth and deceptive in movements than anything. He's so good at getting open."

Agree.

Jerry Rice ran the 40 yard dash in 4.59 seconds, but the dude clearly knew how to get open. There are some guys that just have a knack at getting open past that 3rd down marker, and Hardy is definitely one of them.

I think I'm undervalued Harvey. I need to do some research because this guy is all I'm hearing about.

He has some **** sticky hands...think Darius Johnson but bigger, stronger, quicker, and overall faster.

Hopefully not the attitude though(or whatever Johnson's issue was/is)

Justin Hardy had the best 3 cone time at the combine this year. I'd say that makes him pretty quick. I think he can have the kind of immediate impact out of the slot that Jarvis Landry had last year, only he won't have as many targets.
