Greg Hardy was definitely a top 5 4-3 DE in 2013. Still, his disappearing act when Johnson was absent likely hurt his ranking. This is a great honor for a guy who is about to land a big deal. I know that players always say "Who the hell voted on this crap?" But it is a sign of respect when you get listed on here.
I think he was snubbed in the 2013 ranking. Good to see that rectified this year.
