players like Harvin, who have been in the lg for 4 seasons or so and never played a complete season because of various injuries, these are players that shouldnt be valued too high
15 games in 2009, 14 in 2010, 16 in 2011, and 9 in 2012.
He was hurt last year which was really the only significant time that he has missed. Now I get why people are balking on a second round pick (which I may disagree with, maybe), but to think that he "shouldn't be valued too high" is a bit shortsighted. Like I mentioned earlier, his all-purpose yards make him one of the most productive players in the league. Even though he got hurt, he was still number 31 in all-purpose yards in the NFL last year
. He was 8 in 2011
. Now, I am too lazy to look at all the stats from every perspective, but suffice it to say that Harvin is a highly productive player any way you slice it. Check this piece out
. My main issue with him is not his injury risk, but his attitude (which like his perceived risk of injury can be handled contractually, and realistically by Rivera).
Harvin has the threat level of a Darren Sproles.
