2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Nobody has caught more balls (387) in FBS history than Hardy (who the Falcons selected with their fourth-round pick in this year’s draft) did in his four years at East Carolina. Few doubt Hardy’s talent, but he steps into an offense with two solid starters and a group of receivers looking to prove their worth. Julio Jones and Roddy White are the Week 1 starters, but Hardy has the opportunity to move into the third receiver slot with an effective preseason. That said, he’ll need to beat out Devin Hester - who tallied more than 500 yards last season - and Leonard Hankerson, who signed with the Falcons on a one-year deal this offseason. If he can beat out the pair, the rookie wideout could blossom into a nice receiving threat similar to the Packers’ Davante Adams in his 2014 rookie campaign.
