    Latest Rutgers Patriot WR Mark Harrison

    See column in today's Globe:  Finally, Cosell gave a quick scouting report on the latest Rutgers product to join the Patriots – undrafted wide receiver Mark Harrison (6-3, 235). Harrison had been training in South Florida all spring with Brandon Marshall, who took Harrison under his wing as a workout buddy and mentor.

    Not surprisingly, the Bears initially signed Harrison after the draft, but Harrison suffered a broken bone in his foot the day before his Pro Day in March, and the Bears released him two weeks ago after he failed a physical.

    Harrison has tremendous measurables – a 38-inch vertical and 4.46 time in the 40 at the Combine, to go along with his height – but caught just 18 touchdowns in four years at Rutgers.

     

    I have a good bud in Jersey who follows Rutgers football and like this kid a lot and thought Pats should have drafted him.  BB may have a winner here!

    What say y'all?

    Re: Latest Rutgers Patriot WR Mark Harrison

    From Bleacher Report:  In his senior year, Harrison caught 44 passes for 583 yards and six touchdowns.

    Strengths

    Great size, with a powerful build. Long arms. Uses his body to shield defenders from the football. Does a good job of coming back to the football. Better feet and quickness on comeback routes than you'd expect. Big-play and red-zone threat. Difficult to bring down with the ball in his hands, will run through arm tackles. Competitor. Good footwork as a blocker, extends arms, and gains proper position.

    Marshall is a great fb player. He can teach this kid a lot of things.

    Good size, speed and athleticism but is more of an inline downfield threat, he doesn't have amazing mobility.  If he proves he can out muscle NFL corners and make physical grabs ala Michael Irvin than he'll have a future, but he won't be able to get behind pro corners the way he did in college.  

    Let's not get too excited about him, that way we won't be let down and join in with the moaners complaining Belichick gave another free agent (bust) a shot to make this team.

    Well I'm not going to do cartwheels just yet! However there is something to be said for size at the WR position. I watched some film on him and he looked to be a decent after the catch runner,he was a little stiff in his route but once he caught the ball he used his size and speed to just blow through any potential tacklers,one thing is for sure arm tackling won't bring him down. I think the potential outweighs any off field issues. I wouldn't be surprised if he made the team and conversely I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't make the team. He is however a former Scarlett Knight and that brand has a lot of pull with BB at the present time.

    He looks like with a little work he could become a third pass catching option at tight end for some team a few years down the road. I can't see him making it as a receiver.

    Isn't he the guy that pooped all over his hotel room at the combine and spread it all around?

    If so, AWESOME!

         Let's not get too excited here. There's a reason why this guy, despite his physical qualifications, went undrafted. The main problem with this kid has been consistency. He'll make the odd great catch, and then will demonstrate stone fingers, and drop a couple of easy ones. That said, any WR with his physical skills set is worth looking at.

    I thing this is a kid BB saw and liked and he might be a WR of merit on the cheap!

    Marshall has been low key the last few years. Hopefully he's grown up some.  The guy can play though.
