Percy Harvin WR Florida #1

Ht: 5'11
Wt: 197

Elite speed. A threat to take it the distance every time he touches the ball. Has some experience lining up in the backfield as a running back. Decent hands. An experienced return specialist.
Vastly undersized. Not a great route runner; was primarily used in specially designed plays for him in Florida's gimmick offense. Durability is a major concern. Missed time in all three seasons at Florida. Missed time with ankle injuries in 2006 and 2008.
Harvin is a playmaker on the same level as former Ohio State wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr who was selected 9th overall in 2006. However, Harvin is not nearly as polished a receiver as Ginn was coming out of college. Both are undersized, but Ohio State's offense prepared Ginn for the NFL while Florida's offense resembles nothing Harvin will encounter at the next level. The biggest knock on Harvin, however, is his history of injuries. He isn't the type of receiver that can be effective when he isn't 100 percent. One more ankle injury could slow him down enough to make him irrelevant which is a scary prospect for teams considering spending a first round selection on a guy like Harvin.
