Dynasty Prospect Profile: Kelvin Harmon

By Jared Smola 8:03am EDT 3/15/19


Kelvin Harmon, WR, North Carolina State

Height: 6’2

Weight: 221

Age: 22.8


Combine results:

(percentile rank among all WRs at the Combine since 1999, courtesy of mockdraftable.com):

40-yard dash: 4.60 seconds (17th)

Vertical: 32.5” (16th)

Broad: 117” (28th)

3-cone: 7.15 seconds (17th)

20-yard shuttle: 4.32 (26th)


College career:

A native of Liberia (he moved to the U.S. when he was 4), Harmon was not a highly touted recruit coming out of Palmyra High School in New Jersey. He was ranked outside the top 50 WRs in his class by both ESPN and Rivals.com.

That didn’t stop Harmon from making an immediate impact for N.C. State, though. He hauled in a pair of TDs in his 3rd career game and later posted lines of 5-80-1 and 4-101-1. He finished his freshman campaign 4th on the team in receiving yards and 2nd in receiving scores.

Harmon emerged as the Wolf Pack’s #1 WR as a sophomore, leading the team with a 28.4% share of the receiving yards. He became the 1st N.C. State player to top 1,000 yards since 2003. Harmon tallied 100+ yards 6 times but was also held below 35 yards 5 times. His 4 TDs tied for 2nd on the team with TE/RB Jaylen Samuels and behind WR Jakobi Meyers.

Harmon improved his numbers across the board this past season, leading the team in receiving yards and TDs. He ranked 2nd to Meyers (92) in catches. Harmon posted good-not-great market shares: 25.7% of the catches, 30.2% of the yards and 29.2% of the TDs. Those marks rank 19th, 23rd and 26th among the 48 WRs at this year’s Combine.

Harmon’s production was again erratic, with 6 games of 100+ yards (including a 247-yard explosion) but 4 outings of 54 yards or fewer. He hit pay dirt in 6 of 12 games.

Harmon is plenty capable in the “big” WR game, showing the ability to win contested balls and contort his body to adjust to throws in tight coverage.




But he’s also impressive in the “small” game for a man of his size. Harmon is quick off the line of scrimmage to beat press coverage.



He has the ability to sink his hips to get in and out of routes and has the change-of-direction ability to create big separation on double moves.




Harmon doesn’t boast elite speed, but he flashes nice acceleration and eats up ground with long strides on deep routes.



Fantasy potential:

Harmon brings solid college production but below-average measurables (35th percentile SPARQ). And his tape doesn’t scream dominant WR at the next level.

But it’s also tough to find any holes in Harmon’s game. He has the size and skill set to win in contested situations and also has enough wiggle to create short-area separation.

We didn’t see him do much damage after the catch at N.C. State. And it’s worth noting that he ran the vast majority of his routes from the right outside WR spot, so it’s uncertain how much alignment versatility he’ll bring.

But Harmon’s size and movement ability give him a shot to emerge as a starter for both his NFL team and fantasy squads.
