Harvin is a dynamic game breaker who has tremendous versatility on offense and special teams. He has a quick first step and gets separation from the opposition instantly. He runs solid routes, comes back to the ball and flashes excellent hands. He gets vertical, tracks down deep passes and positions himself against defenders to come away with the ball.

|Adam Caplan's Flash Analysis||In recent weeks, team sources said there was a big debate on what to do with this selection. While many believed they would ultimately pass on Harvin because of major off-the-field issues in his past, there was a strong sentiment by the personnel staff to take a big risk on the talented, but troubled player. The final decision rested with head coach Brad Childress who decided, after meeting with Harvin this week, that they would make the move. This pick will be heavily criticized, but give them credit for being gutsy here. Harvin, without his shady past, is easily a top-five talent. He'll play in the slot, out wide, and in the backfield. He'll give teams one more thing to think about.|
