Hardesty has potential in Browns offense

The Cleveland Browns landed a power running back in Montario Hardesty with the 59th overall pick, who will likely combine with Jerome Harrison to form a backfield committee in Cleveland.

He’s an attractive fit for the Browns’ power-blocking scheme and should see more than his share of carries for coach Eric Mangini. Hardesty obviously hurts the value of Harrison, who was never going to be a featured back at the NFL level due to his lack of size.

I still think Harrison is the better fantasy option of the two, but he’s now less attractive as a No. 2 fantasy runner.

With Hardesty in the mix, James Davis and Chris Jennings now have little draft appeal.
