NFL Draft: Patriots Interested In Big WR

Donte Stallworth has been given the indication he won't be re-signed at his current contract price. So what are the Patriots going to do for their third receiver -- assuming they manage to sign Randy Moss to a new deal? How about a 6-foot-6 wideout with sure hands and size to grab whatever comes his way? Exclusive Q & A with this top prospect who the Patriots have already spoken with.


A first-team All-Big Ten Conference selection, wide receiver James Hardy set Indiana University single-season records with 79 receptions for 1,125 yards and 16 touchdowns as a junior in 2007. And he's alone at the top of the school's record book with career records of 191 catches for 2,749 yards and 36 touchdowns.

Already drawing interest from well over half the teams in the league, Hardy should hear his name called during the first two rounds in April's NFL Draft as one of the top wide receiver talents in this draft class.

Find out what the 6-foot-6, 220-pound receiver recently had to say to Senior NFL Analyst Ed Thompson in this exclusive interview as Hardy prepares for a major step towards fulfilling his NFL dream -- the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.
