I've been checking out some guys that should be available around our pick in the first round and one guy that really stands out is Percy Harvin and I think he would be a great fit here. I would stick him in the slot or in a split backfield with AP and use him for reverses and dump-off routes. From what I see in the following video, he is good at making people miss and he has natural running instincts with the bonus of catching the ball extremely well. He also seems like a legit deep threat with sure hands much like steve smith (both are pretty small. He also reminds me of Reggie Bush with better hands.
Here is what nfldraftdog has to say about him.
Here are a couple highlight videos that are pretty good.Quote:
One of the most versatile athletes in the country, Harvin enters the 2008 season as a Heisman candidate on a team that boasts a Heisman winner (Tim Tebow) already!
Just as he did in high school, the versatility that enables him to do so much on the field also holds him back in being distinguished.
With College Football being so popular now, all awards and accolades need to be put into certain buckets.
Harvin is listed as a WR, but runs the ball almost as much as he catches it.
His total yards from scrimmage is impressive, but as JUST a WR or JUST a RB, his numbers are average.
