The Arizona Cardinals use the second overall pick in the NFL Mocks Midseason Mock Draft for the NFC West to select WR Marvin Harrison Jr., Ohio State. Staying with Murray and getting him an immediate WR threat and ultimate weapon is a big win for Murray and the Cardinals. Show tremendous faith in Murray by getting him the best WR prospect we have seen since Calvin Johnson and passing on Caleb Williams. 

The Buckeye wideout is a standout prospect for the 2024 NFL Draft. His father, Marvin Harrison Sr., is a Hall-of-Famer, and Jr. has inherited his talent. He has been showing off his skill on the field and making quite a name for himself. 

Harrison Jr. is 6-foot-4 and 210 pounds, making him the ideal size for a WR1. His precision and calculated approach to the game are evident through his hands and footwork, plus his contested catch percentage of 60.0 percent last season was impressive. 

Also, he led all wide receivers in the FBS with 36 explosive plays. His stat sheet in 2022 was impressive, with 77 catches, 1,263 yards, and 14 touchdowns. However, he wasn't satisfied and said to watch his 2023 season for a better all-around showing. He finished 2023 with 11-1 Buckeyes, missing the CFB Playoffs but hauled in 52 catches, 1,211 yards, and 14 touchdowns. Marvin Harrison Jr. is the complete package and one of the top receivers in recent college football history.

The Cardinals offense just became a must-watch team in 2024, and a healthy Murray and Harrison Jr. will make for exciting Sundays in Phoenix. They have many more picks to build around this duo; a solid RB may add to their potency.
