Matt Waldman’s RSP Boiler Room No.197: WR Penny Hart (Georgia State), More Than a Slot?

Matt Waldman’s RSP Boiler Room examines 2019 NFL Draft prospect Penny Hart and the skills that go beyond his work as a slot receiver.

Andy Isabella earned a lot of buzz for his work at the Senior Bowl. However, Penny Hart could offer just as much if not more to an NFL Team. Both receivers offer quickness and big-play ability from the slot and skill after the catch.

Hart is a little more rugged, delivers in the vertical game, and makes his presence felt as a blocker. Will these skills translate to the NFL? If they do, Hart could offer a team a receiver with a blend of John Brown and Jacoby Ford’s skills and traits.

The comfort with physical play — ranging from dishing out hard contact to avoiding multiple defenders in tight space to dealing with potentially distracting hand fighting — shows up on Hart’s tape.

The worst case scenario is that Hart delivers in the return game and develops into a capable slot receiver. His acceleration and stop-start quickness are arresting.
