Browns RB Montario Hardesty impressing his head coach

Browns running back Trent Richardson missed the large majority of organized team activities due to a leg strain. That gave his backfield mates extra reps and extra chances to open some eyes. It sounds like Richardson's backup, Montario Hardesty @MoHard20, made the most of those chances.
"Montario, really, just going back to the beginning of spring, April 1, has done a great job in the weight room," head coach Rob Chudzinski said, via the Browns' official website. "He has put some muscle on and picked the offense up well. Just watching him on tape, and as a runner, he has the natural instincts, and he is a slasher who has good vision. The thing I've really seen and been most impressed with is him catching the ball. I don't think he has dropped a pass out here. He has really worked a lot on his hands."

Fantasy Analysis:

All of that will come in handy if/when Richardson misses an extended period of time. Right now, Richardson is expected to be back for the start of training camp and resume his duties as Cleveland's every-down rusher. Hardesty should be drafted only as a handcuff if you selected Richardson earlier. Otherwise, he is not worth your time.
