Kelvin Harmon is already missed around these parts, though I’m not sure it’s going to really sink in until the first game of the season this fall. Harmon has been a significant part of the football program’s resurgence over the last few years, and it’s going to be strange at first not to see him in an NC State uniform.
Harmon chose to skip his senior season and enter the NFL Draft, which was a wise move—eventually there’s nothing left to put on film and it’s time to go and see what the league thinks of you. The latest Pro Football Focus mock draft has Harmon going in the first round to the Philadelphia Eagles.
I don’t think there’s any question that Harmon has the skills to be a standout at the next level, and if he does end up going in the late stages of the first round, somebody might be getting a steal.
