  2. I'm not a huge fan of Percy, but I would be happy to see DJ Moore fall to us in the second.

    I don't see Percy being a great reciever in the NFL. I would rather see us get someone like Nicks or Britt.

    That is not a bad draft at all. Good value in every pick whether you like harvin or not.

    How in the hell does he expect freeman to be available for the 94th pick? He might not be there for our 64th pick.

    I wouldn't be happy with Harvin in the 1st based on my own notions of value, but getting Moore in the 2nd would be theft. I also like Vasquez and Moore. I'd be more than satisfied if that draft actually happened.

    I'm happy with everything in there but round one. I just really can't see us pulling the trigger on Harvin.

    I can't see us getting Harvin, but if we did I'd hold out hope he could be effective in the NFL.

    Tough to tell, though.

    My take on percy harvin.

    I have said before i consider harvin a better RB than a WR and it is only because of his size @ 192 lbs that nobody considers him a RB prospect.

    Harvin is a very strong 192 lbs and is not that much smaller than CJ or slaton and is bigger than sproles. While we are hardly in need of a so called speed back i do see how he can be an asset to our team even if he was nothing more than an average brandon jones caliber slot receiver.

    He could line up in the backfield with CJ in special packages designed to create a mismatch. He could be a dynamic return man as well.

    Harvin was the 6th fastest WR at the combine but his 4.41 time would have been far and away the fastest RB time. The best RB time was 4.46.

    Does compare equally if not favorable to randall el when he came out in 2002.

    So in short while harvin might not be the best pure WR prospect at 30 he might be the best athlete and a guy who can add even more to our offense.

    I question whether Peria Jerry will last till #27 to the Colts.

    As for the Titans, we're not a trick play team. I can't see us taking Harvin at all. Doesn't fit the mold.
