Hardrick gets a chance with Bucs

The NFL draft was held this weekend and Jemarcus “Yoshi” Hardrick got a shot to showcase his talent in the NFL. He did not get drafted or picked up as a free agent but he did receive a couple of rookie camp invitations.

“I got invited to Tampa Bay Buccaneer rookie mini camp and they said there’s a good chance they will sign me!! But if they don’t sign me I also got invited to saints rookie camp two weeks later,” Hardrick said.

Hardrick graduated from South Panola in 2008 and played two years with Ft. Scott Jr. College in Kentucky and his last two years with the Nebraska Cornhuskers as an offensive lineman.
