“I have prayed and discussed the path forward with my family and we have decided that it is time for me to proceed to the next chapter in my football life,” writes Harmon. “That chapter will be playing professional football in the National Football League. To this end, I am relinquishing my college eligibility, effective immediately, and declaring myself a professional. I am applying for entry into the 2019 NFL draft. I will not be playing in the upcoming Gator Bowl but my support for my teammates will go unchanged.”
Harmon’s role in the Wolfpack offense steadily grew over the past three seasons. After managing only 27 receptions during his freshman year, Harmon totaled 69 catches for 1,017 yards and four touchdowns, earning second-team All-ACC honors along the way. This season, Harmon posted his best results yet (81/1,186/7) and was named first-team All-ACC.
Harmon certainly has the size of a No. 1 wideout, as he stands 6’3″, 214 pounds. In his most recent 2019 big board, Chris Trapasso of CBSSports.com ranked Harmon as the 11th-best prospect in the draft, so the NC State product should stand a good chance of being a first-round selection. In a scouting report of Harmon, Trapasso noted the Liberia native’s ability to win contested catches and his “impressive speed and wiggle” after the catch.
