Percy Harvin

He was a MVP candidate until the half way point.

I hear ya tho man - dudes been on the injury list since he came in the league and I wouldn't feel comfy throwing a ton of cash at him.

This is the main reason that I don't think his value is 2nd OR 3rd round worthy. You never know when he'll have a migraine and miss games/practices.

could draft a better WR with our 2nd round pick

i disagree.. in 9 games this yr had 62 catches for 677yds 3tds. along with 16 kickoff returns for 574yds 1td.. almost 36yds per return. imagine our offense starting at the 30-35 each time instead of the 20. also 100yds rushing. personally i think the most telling stat is he only played 9 games, but he is 2nd in the enitire NFL in YAC with 551yds. Thats a half season for him vs entire season for everyone else.caught 73% of the balls thrown in his direction 3rd in NFC WR's. Smitty, Percy, Olsen, Lafell. dirty

Yeah I agree, Harvin is a player. He does many things well. He's just on the injury list a lot. Not a guy I wanna throw a lot of money at.

Some of the responses here are funny. Yea, harvin is a bit of a diva and has his issues with staying on the field, but the guy is a dynamic playmaker who is explosive with the ball in his hands, he'd be a #1 wr on nearly every team in the league

I Like Harvin,but his migraine issues seem to be a real headache. Also we don't have a 3rd to throw at them.

....no doubt...how could we enterain this idea...

Yes, he's a playmaker, but he's guaranteed to miss games. Wouldn't want to pay a guy (no matter how good) when you know for a fact he'll miss time. Now for the right price,it'd be a no brainer.

Yea I agree we're hurting bad for loot so it would take some magic. I was just arguing for harvins ability really, seems a few here are underestimating his ability, the guy is a baller

He was a MVP candidate but you dnt watch the Vikings every Sundays like I do. Harvin is an incredible athletes but like I said all his catches and yards came on simple screens and dump offs from the flats. He can't stretch the field.

If we had a third, I'd throw in a 3rd but not a 2nd. Percy may not want to resign with the Vikes. Maybe it's best Minny try to get whatever they can for him but I don't see anything less than a 2nd with the potential Harvin has. He's just not a complete receiver to me. To me Percy is a poor man 89 and a polished out Dexter McCluster.

I'd rather take a Patterson, Woods, or Rogers in the 2nd over him.
