The Arizona Cardinals could’ve traded the No. 4 overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft and added more draft capitol, instead they stayed pat and selected the top wide receiver in the draft in one Marvin Harrison Jr.

The former Ohio State star and son of Marvin Harrison Sr. is looking to pave his own stardom in the NFL and should have no problem doing such.  How good and dominate he will be at the pro level will obviously depend on his quarterback and the offense around him.  With Kyler Murray solidifying himself as the franchise quarterback, the addition of MHJ should give the offense even more of a boost in 2024.

Cardinals rookie Marvin Harrison Jr. enters the league with a stacked resume

A First team Associated Press All-American in 2023, Harrison Jr. let his production at Ohio State speak for itself as he didn’t workout at the NFL Scouting Combine or Pro Days leading up to the draft.  This led to the potential of Harrison Jr. sliding a bit in the draft, but that didn’t happen as Arizona selected perhaps the best wide receiver to wear a Cardinals’ uniform since Larry Fitzgerald.

Talk about two NFL legends to live up to and be compared to.  But, if there is any athlete who can handle the hype and the expectations it is Harrison Jr., who steps on the field and just does the work as a high-volume, high-impact target who will shine in Arizona Day 1.

If you are a Cardinals fan, get ready to see a lot of Murray to Harrison Jr., as the two started forming that chemistry in OTAs.  Look at this:

Marvin Harrison Jr. makes a name for himself early in his rookie career

As far as what to expect from Harrison Jr. in his rookie season in the NFL.  He will be solid, although it may take some time for him to look like the MHJ he was at OSU.  Like any receiver, it will take some time for him to adjust to defenses to the point where he will gain advantages over opposing defenders.  With his high football IQ and savvy skillset as a receiver, Harrison Jr. will live up to expectations.

When it comes to bold predictions, NFL Mocks predicts Harrison Jr. will have his first 100-yard receiving game in a Week 2 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams.  That is where the Murray to Harrison Jr connection will really start to shine as Harrison Jr. has his breakout game early in his career with 120 yards receiving and two touchdowns in helping the Cardinals to an early season upset.

In the first of a many 100-yard receiving games in his rookie season, Harrison Jr. will be a NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year candidate and start etching his own name in the NFL.
