2. Kelvin Harmon
N.C. State, 6-foot-3, 214 pounds
One of the most dominant and productive receivers in the ACC over the last couple years, could he step in and dominate like Jordy used to?
Kelvin Harmon is a beast.
Many may not have considered him this way but…Jordy Nelson was a beast.
Harmon’s height and weight are the most similar to Jordy’s and it really shows in his play. A dominant player with a dominant play style, Harmon knows his height and weight are top-tier and he has no problem bullying smaller cornerbacks to get the ball. He would fit in perfectly in the receiver room as another big target for Rodgers.
Harmon has surprising speed for his size and, just like Jordy, it shows. Harmon, like Jordy, was also very productive during the course of his college career, finishing with 2,665 receiving yards, putting up two over-1,000-yard seasons back to back.
The temptation when we see Harmon’s height and weight is to label him as someone who only relies on those two traits. While he does occasionally fall for this temptation, Harmon is far more than that. A detailed route-runner, Harmon is very good at the little things and this is what made him as productive as he was.
Davante Adams is obviously the Packers’ No. 1 receiver, but why not get another alpha type receiver to work with him? It worked in 2010-2011 and I’m certain it would work again.
