With mock draft season in full swing, CBS Sports' Ryan Wilson has the Redskins taking N.C State wide receiver Kelvin Harmon with the 15th selection in this year’s draft.
Could the Washington Redskins use their first-round selection on a wide receiver for the second time in four years?
"The Redskins' passing offense ranked 29th in 2018 and while there were many reasons for it, the lack of an explosive downfield playmaker played a big role,” Wilson writes. “The team obviously needs to sort out its quarterback situation but Harmon put up eye-popping numbers during his junior season at N.C. State and he'd be a welcome addition in Washington, where the leading receiver was tight end Jordan Reed."
Harmon recently declared for the draft after completing his junior campaign with the Wolfpack.
In three seasons in Raleigh, the 6-foot-3 wide-out appeared in 40 games. Harmon hauled in 177 career receptions totaling 2,958 yards with 17 touchdowns.
During the 2018 season, Harmon was named as a member of the All-ACC first team, as he recorded 81 receptions for 1,186 yards while adding seven touchdowns.
Home against Wake Forest on Nov. 8, Harmon recorded a season-high 15 catches. Just two weeks prior at Syracuse, he enjoyed his best performance of the year, where he reeled in 11 balls for 247 yards and two touchdowns.
Harmon entered his junior season with high expectations, as he was named a preseason All-ACC member and returned to the Wolfpack as their leading receiver from 2017.
As a freshman, Harmon was an immediate impact player for the Wolfpack, as he was named the teams’ freshman of the year and was named to the Athlon Sports All-ACC freshman team. Harmon led all freshman Wolfpack receivers with 27 catches for 462 yards, and finished the season second on the team with five touchdowns.
If selected by the Redskins, Harmon would join a crowded group at wideout with the likes of Jamison Crowder (should the team re-sign him this offseason), Paul Richardson Jr., and Josh Doctson, among others at the position.
Washington has selected just two receivers in the first round since the 2000 draft, the most recent being Doctson in 2016.
