Grand Forks, N.D. - Senior Greg Hardin said the final day of the 2014 NFL Draft was a crazy one, but for a day where he woke up not knowing where his future might be spent, North Dakota's record-setting receiver landed exactly where he wanted to be after signing a free agent deal with Denver. 

"Denver was always at the top of my list," Hardin said. "They were my first choice from the start."

Hardin was one of 15 undrafted college players to sign a free agent with the defending AFC Champions on Saturday.

He set a number of North Dakota receiving records during his four-year career in Grand Forks, bumping a player who will be one of his division rivals in Weston Dressler from the top spot on a few of those.

"I'm just so excited to get this chance," Hardin added. "I am ready to get out to Denver and get right to work."

Hardin, who was a two-time All-American, finished his UND career with a school-record 3,583 receiving yards. Hardin and Dressler will square off twice during the regular season after the former CFL standout inked his own free agent deal with the Kansas City Chiefs in the offseason. 

Hardin set career-highs in 2013 with 67 catches for 1,153 yards. The Bellevue, Neb., native added 5,052 all-purpose yards, which is the third-highest total in school history, and became the first UND player to return three kickoff returns for touchdowns.

Hardin will head out to Denver in the coming days and begin his trek as a professional football player.
