Harvin Percy Florida WR 6.5
Last Name First Name College Position Final Grade
5'11" 195 4.41
Height Weight 40 Time
Q.A.B 7.5

Quick Feet 7.5

C.O.D 7.5

Flexibility 7.5

Coordination 7.5

Harvin is an excellent athlete. He is very versatile on the field and can do just about anything because of his athletic ability. Harvin is fast, quick, and changes direction in the blink of an eye. He is just one of those guys that is a purely gifted athlete. Just on his athleticism alone he is going to be capable of at least a couple of big plays a game.
Toughness 6.5

Clutch Play 6.5

Production 6.5

Consistency 5.5

Team Player 6.5

Pride/Quit 6.5

Harvin is a tough player and does not shy away from going after the ball in traffic. His elusiveness and speed has allowed him to come up with some of the biggest plays on some of the biggest stages. Harvin's production at Florida is very good as an all purpose player. His consistency as a receiver is kind of all over the place which can be attributed to how he is used in Urban Meyer's system at Florida. Harvin's willingness to do just about anything on the field and play through pain makes him a team player with very little quit.
Learn/Retain 5.0

Inst/Reaction 6.5

Concentration 6.5

I don't see Harvin as the brainy receiver; he is not going to read and pick apart a defense's scheme for openings, however he will kill you with his natural instincts and his athletic ability allows him to react very quickly to the defense. Harvin's ability to lineup all over the field and make plays shows that his concentration is very good throughout the game.
Body Type 5.0

Durability 5.5

Explosion 6.0

Play Strength 5.5

Harvin has adequate size but needs to increase his upper body strength. His strength, especially upper body, is in question because he struggles in the blocking game as well as getting off the ball when jammed. Harvin is explosive when he finds a crease and bursts right through it using his quickness but is not going to run anyone over. His durability is a bit in question because he did get banged up a little bit this season and missed some practices and one game.

Hands: 6.5

Competes: 6.5

Instincts: 6.5

6.5 RETURN ABILITY Didn't return at Florida but with speed, quickness, instincts, and athleticism should be very good in the NFL
7.0 FUMBLE/ERRORS Doesn't make many mistakes
Harvin's strengths are his athleticism, speed, and versatility. Harvin can lineup in multiple positions on the field and because of his speed and elusiveness he can make big plays at any given time. He has good hands and outstanding focus to be able to make plays from the backfield, split out wide, or from the slot. Harvin lacks strength which has caused him to struggle getting off the ball against a jam and also sustaining blocks downfield. The system and how he was used at Florida is also a question mark on whether or not he can be a true WR in a conventional pro style offense.
Harvin is kind of one of those players that you just don't know what you're going to get with him. He has great instincts and elusiveness in the open field. He can make big, game changing type plays but is going to be a conventional receiver in the NFL. Harvin has the ability to play RB but lacks the size and it's the same thing with WR and he hasn't shown all the skills you need to play receiver in the NFL. His athletic ability is without question top notch, but it is lack of strength and the mental game that comes with playing WR in the NFL that keeps you guessing about him. Harvin will be most effective sooner in the return game as well as a third receiver where he can catch those screens and short passes allowing him to make plays in the open field. I believe Harvin is going to be taken late 1st early 2nd because it will be hard to pass on his speed and big play abilities.
