Georgia State receiver Penny Hart
Georgia State receiver Penny Hart is a four year senior for the Panthers of the Sun Belt conference. His speed and quickness are what will find him a home in the NFL. A dynamic playmaker he has potential to be a slot receiver with downfield play a
Lighting up the Sun Belt
In four seasons Hart finished with 203 catches for 2,960 yards and 19 touchdowns.
As a freshman, he had an outstanding season as he caught 72 passes for 1,109 yards. Those numbers were good enough to make him the Sun Belt Freshman of the year and All-Sun Belt first team. Consequently, in 2016 his season was cut short after two games due to a foot injury. However, he would then bounce back in 2017 with 74 catches and 1,121 yards and return to first-team All-Sun Belt. His senior season was a little bit of a disappointment but the playmaking ability is there.
Another undersized playmaker?
The Eagles already have one undersized playmaker who’s 5’6. If the Eagles were to add the 5’8 Hart they’d be gaining a second. The Georgia State receiver doesn’t let his size stop him. His versatility will be his biggest asset in the NFL. Whether on jet sweeps, kick or punt returns or just an underneath threat Hart could find a home in South Philly.
Putting people on notice
Due to his body of work, Hart earned a trip to the Senior Bowl. Hart took full advantage and displayed a route running clinic and good hands. Here he is against Delaware safety Nasir Adderley.
This is just a sample of what he can do. While in the actual game he only had one catch it was still a great week. Projected to be a potential day two or three pick teams could be getting a gem in the Georgia n
The more playmakers the better
If I’m the Eagles id certainly give Hart a look. He may be undersized however having him in rotation with Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor, Mack Hollins and others will keep everyone fresh and options all over. Furthermore, when you watch him you can see a bit of Taylor Gabriel in his game.
Idk about you guys but I’d love to see Hart in M
