     How He Fits

    Hart generally lines up right in the middle of the MUS defense, but his size is a bit more indicative of an outside linebacker, so wherever he ends up will need to find the right fit for him. He’s slightly undersized for a major prospect, but he flies around the field, making tackles in the backfield, getting in passing lanes and getting to the quarterback when asked to help in the pass rush.
