Percy Harvin Scouting Report
|Height & Weight:||5'11 - 195 lbs.|
2009 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Percy Harvin, WR, Florida
In Tim Tebow and Percy Harvin, the National Champion Florida Gators had two dual threats: Tebow as a runner and passer and Harvin as a runner and receiver. They still have Tebow for next season, but Harvin is taking his explosiveness to the next level. As a sophomore in 2007, the speedy wideout caught 59 passes for 858 yards and four touchdowns. On the ground he had 83 carries for 764 yards and six touchdowns. After two games of this past season, the oft-injured Harvin said he was feeling the best he ever had and as such the Florida coaches were about to "cut him loose." Unfortunately an ankle injury crippled Harvin's second half of his 2008 campaign. After missing the SEC Championship, however, Harvin soared to new heights in the BCS Title game despite not being 100 percent. He rushed nine times for 121 yards and one touchdown, and added 49 receiving yards. He can run under 4.3 in the 40 and he is just as elusive as he is fast. Anytime he touches the ball he has touchdown potential, regardless of where he is on the football field. The knock on Harvin, of course, is his size. He stands just 5'11'' and 195 pounds, so it remains to be seen how he will deal with bigger, stronger cornerbacks at the next level. Still, there is no reason to think he can't be lethal on Sundays as a slot receiver. He should be off the board in the first round of this month's NFL Draft.
