Welcome to the Redskins Kelvin Harmon WR North Carolina State

Recommended Posts

So one thing I don’t get...

Richardson plays flanker/Z, McLuaren is more of a flanker (IMO), Sims played at the flanker spot last preseason, Quinn is our slot guy, but can play out at Z... and now we’re working Harmon out at Z too.  So what’s the plan at X beyond Josh “last year of his contract” Doctson?

 

I also seem to recall a similar situation when Pryor was here...

Some think McLaurin can play X so maybe that's it?    

 

Edit:  I just watched some practice footage, Harmon catching balls from what i saw on the right side, McLaurin on the left.  The left is typically the X side, right typically the Z side.  So maybe McLaurin will play X.

 

Harmon from what i recall played both Z and X in NC State but recall more Z unless i am misremembering.  i got to go back and watch his games again.

Interesting athletic comparison. Looks like Sanu was a better athlete, other than 40 time, and also was a little longer. One can hope though!!

That is a great comparison and he was a third rounder, where Harmon was expected to go.  Sanu has enjoyed nice career to date with almost 350 catches and a load of other receivers he must share receptions with.

I saw Rutgers play Army and Yankee Stadium his senior year and he was the best player on the field and it wasn't close.

Doctson is out as far as I'm concerned.  When the Redskins didn't pick up his option, that pretty much spelled the end of his time here.  What a tremendous disappointment and a real black spot on McLoughan's short time here as GM.  

 

I think they plan to develop these guys and maybe snag a true #1 WR next year in the first round, especially if they are picking in the top 10.

Personally I don't see any way we pick in the top 10. To me the question is, do you deal? Do you trade up to target a serious talent at WR for Haskins, figuring that in '21 that pick is in the late 20s.................

Looks like the Skins may have a problem at WR.

However, it could potentially be a good problem.

At first, I expected Harmon to play X, too, because of his skill-set. But I can see why they want him not an X because his weakness is beating press coverage and getting separation. And since the split-end receiver (X) has to play on the line, he is likely to be opposed by the defensive’s best corner and that means getting jammed at the line, press coverage, and boxed by a safety. The flanker role can play off the line, making the TE eligible, and with that ‘cushion’ can get open easier. Kelvin Harmon was excellent last year with off-coverage and in zone. 

 

So now my mind is racing because I can see a new paradigm at WR with the future being McLaurin at X, Harmon at Z and Quinn at Y. This lineup may be realized sooner than later as Richardson is oft injured and Doctson could continue his pedestrian trend and get replaced by McLaurin. 

 

It could work but I still think we might need a Doctson sized X but a faster more sure-handed receiver, probably a 2020 1st rounder. However,  If our offensive strategy will primarily be a running team eating up clock and lots of 3rd and shorts, then we likely don't need that type of elite receiver. I hope Mclaurin and Harmon work then we can then instead draft a 1st round CB to have our D completely set.

Man Harmon does look like Julio a lot. If he can even be half of a wideout it would be amazing. But let’s face it how many sixth rounders ever make an amazing impact their first year. 

 

I know many are down on Doctson but I’m hoping he finally comes around. Maybe with some stability at QB with Haskins that will make a difference. He just wasn’t Kirks guy and never had a chance with Alex and then had to deal with a lot of other qbs. I’m rooting for him.

He dropped a lot.

I think he was originally projected around the 3rd round, and no-one can quite agree on the reasons he dropped, and many acknowledge there wasn't strong enough reasons for him to drop.

So I would not base his potential on where he was actually selected.

Some are calling his selection the best steal in the entire draft.

I'm not as high on Harmon as a few others seem to be. His numbers are impressive but he doesn't really jump out to me when I watch him play. Actually the most impressive parts of his videos are Ryan Finley's passes, holy moly they're on point.

 My point isn’t his potential. Sure he develop into a productive wideout and there’s plenty of wide receivers taken late that become awesome. I just can’t see him posting great numbers his first year. If he can get us 40 catches and 600 yards that would be a great return.

I found it interesting that at 1:24:28 Cooley says that he has Harmon graded as the best blocking wide receiver in the draft.

He also said earlier in the segment that Harmon was great against press, which conflicts with some other reports I've read and was a potential worry for me.
