Former University of North Dakota wide receiver Greg Hardin has agreed to terms with the Denver Broncos to join the team as an undrafted free agent. Hardin told Valley News Live that he's excited for the opportunity to learn from "the greatest quarterback of all time, Peyton Manning." He also said that he was looking forward to helping open more doors for small school players.
Hardin set career-highs in both receiving yards (1,153) and kickoff return yards (854) during his senior season. His receiving yardage was the second-highest regular season total in school history and his 67 receptions were also a career-high. The repeat first team All-Big Sky performer also became the first player in UND history to record three kickoff returns for touchdowns. Hardin finished his career with 5,052 all-purpose yards, which is the third-highest total in school history. He broke Weston Dressler's overall UND record for career receiving yardage with 3,583.
