With the No.2 pick in the NFL Mocks mid-season mock draft for the NFC East, the Giants select Marvin Harrison Jr, WR Ohio State. The Danny Dimes era continues as the Giants for-go Drake Maye and get their first NFL-level WR since OBJ. Yes we know the Bears took Harrison in the NFC North mock draft, but as Sonny Weaver always said we live in a different world then we did last week.
Harrison, the son of a legendary NFL wide receiver, was highly sought after and ultimately joined the Buckeyes. His dad is enshrined in the Hall of Fame. Harrison Jr. Is far more gifted than his father, but he won't have Peyton Manning feeding him, possibly Arch Manning.
In 2022, his on-field performance made him a strong contender for the Biletnikoff Award, as he achieved 1,263 yards and 14 touchdowns off 77 receptions. In 2023, he has been sensational for the No. 1 ranked Buckeyes with 1063 yards and 12 touchdowns on 59 receptions. Additionally, his 3.94 shuttle time, 10'8″ broad jump, and possibly high 4.3 speed, as listed in Bruce Feldman's College Football Freaks, make him a formidable player.
The evidence of his quality is evident. His output speaks for itself. Everyone who knows Harrison has nothing but glowing reports of his innate abilities, commitment to hard work, and aspiration for greatness. Let's look at the details and see if what we've heard about Harrison is true - that he is an up-and-coming prospect destined for excellence in the NFL.
No matter the position, Marvin Harrison Jr. of Ohio State is considered the number one prospect for the 2024 NFL Draft and is said to be a once-in-a-generation talent. The Giants absolutely and unquestionably make the right call here; if Danny Dimes can't elevate to Josh Allen's level in 2024, the Giants will be looking at Shedeur Sanders and Quinn Ewers in 2025.
