I figured Kelvin Harmon would be a mid-round selection for his potential, but no, apparently the concerns over his speed were so significant that they killed his value. After more than two days of waiting, he’s finally off the board late in the sixth round and is on his way to Washington.

Harmon went from feeling disappointed to flat out disrespected, and I can’t say as I blame him.

Washington should be happy with the pick, certainly, but also pleased that Harmon will be heading to camp with a large chip on his shoulder. I’m not gonna sit here and argue that Harmon is an elite talent, but dang, you’d think someone with his catch-making ability would have been worth a shot well before the 206th pick.
Anyway, all the best to Kelvin in Washington. He’s got a lot of folks to prove wrong.
Harmon is the fourth NC State player off the board in this draft, joining Garrett Bradbury, Germaine Pratt, and Ryan Finley.
