Countdown to UGA-OSU: 76 Days (#76 Ben Harden)

#76 Ben Harden, OL
6-3, 303, Perry GA (Perry HS), RS Soph.

It has been a long haul so far for Harden, as he originally signed with the 2006 class, but took the Hargrave Military route before his arrival in Athens. He's been somewhat slow to develop, taking a redshirt in 2007 and didn't see any playing time in 2008. Harden is a big body with some versatility (he can play guard or center), but to this point he's still trying to find his place along this UGA offensive line.

Depth Chart Analysis: Harden played a good bit in G-Day, but still figures to struggle to find playing time this year. UGA is just too deep on the OL going into the season. The fact that a player like Harden can't crack the 2-deep (at least not as of today) speaks to some tremendous depth that UGA possesses at this position.
