Selected in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft (No. 22 overall), it was difficult to find a player as explosive and dynamic as Percy Harvin. A 5-foot-11 standout out at the University of Florida, all you had to do was get the ball in his hands and he would make great things happen. His efforts earned him the 2009 AP Offensive Rookie of the Year award and one trip to the Pro Bowl.
Harvin was on the Minnesota roster for half of his career, spending the 2009 to 2012 seasons with the team. During that time, he caught 280 passes for 3,302 yards and 20 touchdowns in 54 games played.
But it wasn’t only his receiving where Harvin excelled. With the Vikings, he ran the ball 107 times for 683 yards and four touchdowns, as well as added 144 kick returns for 3,183 yards and five touchdowns.
When you put it all together, it’s hard to overlook 7,168 all-purpose yards in just four seasons in Minnesota. He did finish out his final four years in the NFL with three different teams, but failed to re-create the magic he had with the Vikings.
