The Oregon State Beavers had exactly one player drafted in last weekend’s NFL Draft.

Incidentally, that one player did not play a single down in black and orange last year.

Brandon Hardin missed all of his senior season because of a shoulder injury. As a junior, he was an awful cornerback. Hardin routinely had mishaps in coverage. A lot of balls were completed to his receiver.

Not to worry.

With the Chicago Bears – who drafted him in the third round – Hardin will play strong safety.

This move will benefit the Bears, obviously. Otherwise they wouldn’t have made it.

Because Hardin is such a monster physically, it’s worth using a pick on him. A third-round pick, maybe not. But picking up Hardin is a wise move. After all, the guy is 6’3,” 217 pounds and runs a 4.4 40. He can hit like a truck. That is not your prototypical cornerback. But it does potentially make for an effective NFL strong safety.
