Harvin was a premier recruit in high school and chose the Gators to showcase his talents. As a true freshman he was a dual threat playmaker, catching 427 yards and two touchdowns on 34 catches to go along with 428 yards and three touchdowns on the ground. As a sophomore Harvin was even more involved, this time rushing for 764 yards and six touchdowns, while adding 858 yards and four touchdowns on 59 receptions.
Harvin is pure excitement on the field. He is as explosive as any offensive player in the draft, and will bring an immediate boost of speed to whatever team selects him. Harvin is a fantastic athlete, with rare elusiveness in a wide receiver. He can make defenders miss with ease, and quickly accelerates to top speed and is gone with the slightest opening. Harvin has shown a lot of versatility, lining up all over the field to maximize his playmaking ability. His combination of quickness and speed could make him a standout special teamer as well in the NFL.
Lining up all over the place has stunted his development as a receiver a bit. He will need to work on lining up as a traditional wide receiver and running true routes at the next level, so he may need a little time to be truly effective as a go to receiver. Harvin also has only average size, although it doesn’t make a big difference since his game is built on speed.
Percy Harvin has lived up to the expectations he had when he first stepped on to campus, and his time in college may be coming to an end. He will be one of the most coveted playmakers in the draft should he declare, and will not have to wait long to hear his name called in April.
