Roundup: Browns’ Hardesty proving to be quick study

While Browns coach Eric Mangini is reportedly having trouble drawing some of his players to voluntary OTAs, set to begin this week, he’s apparently having no problems getting through to rookie RB Montario Hardesty.

Mangini told the Canton Repository that Hardesty has been one of the more diligent students during rookie minicamps. Mangini took notice of the fact that Hardesty doesn’t get overwhelmed when put on the spot, something Mangini likes to do with his younger players.

“Some guys couldn’t get the answers,” Mangini said. “Whenever they couldn’t get an answer, (Hardesty) had his hand in the air. He knew the answer. And it was on a range of different things. You could tell he was constantly paying attention, constantly taking notes.”

Some more notes from Around the Web on Sunday:

  • After missing all but four games last season, Giants DT Chris Canty is “on a mission” to be a big contributor in 2010.
