Penny Hart, WR, Georgia State

My affiliation with Hart is a weird one. When I finally got my hands on a copy of NCAA Football 14 over here in the UK, my first ‘Dynasty’ was with Georgia State and Penny Hart was just incredible. Because of that, I’ve followed his progress very closely. Posting 1,121 yards and 8 touchdowns in 2017, Hart Followed up his successful campaign with a slightly less productive 2018, although he showed plenty of versatility.

Three words sum up Penny Hart: Short. Area. Quickness. I spoke about Hart recently and with good reason. He’s a dynamic receiver who despite lacking size, will never shy away from a block to fail to contest a pass.

His ability to change speed and make clean and concise cuts on deep routes make him a threat from anywhere on the field. He’s extremely quick getting off the line of scrimmage and will soak up the sun when given space to do so. The only real drawback I can see is that he lacks the desired play-strength (standing at 5’8, 180 lbs) to consistently beat NFL DB’s and as a result, relies on his agility which won’t always be enough when asked to drive vertically.

Hart projects to be a perfect slot receiver at the NFL level and although separating at the line can be an issue at times, as a space-player, he could be lethal.
