Percy Harvin is a Seahawk. Seahawks fans are excited. Sounds like a great combination! Lets take a look at how some fans are reacting to the news:
12th Man Rising Staff Reactions
Nick: Harvin is a pricey addition in terms of draft picks, and also the hefty contract that will follow, but that doesn’t mean it was a bad one. Harvin is a playmaker in every sense of the word both as a WR and a KR, who is one of the top 5 open field threats in the game. What makes Harvin so special is how he can turn conservative high percentage passes into massive gains. I’m curious to see to what degree they will use him at RB as a speed complement to Lynch and Turbin’s power and if his role as a short pass YAC threat makes Golden Tate redundant in this area. More than anything I look forward to watching him return kicks because he is an absolute special teams wizard averaging over 35 yards per kick return last year (Leon Washington had 29 which was more than respectable). Harvin has been very productive in his four year career but the most exciting number attached to him is his age, 24, because it means that not only does he have years and years of good football left in him we probably haven’t seen the best of him yet.
Keith: I honestly don’t care about the compensation. Harvin is better than any WR in this draft class, so to get him for the 25th pick is a steal. We also have more picks than open spots on the roster, so whatever. Like I said, I don’t care about that. What I do care about is getting one of the most explosive players in the entire NFL. I spent all day designing plays in my head that will take advantage of his skill set. Defenses are going to hate playing the Seahawks, and I very much care about that.
