Villanova wide receiver Brandyn Harvey will participate in the local workout day Thursday with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Harvey is considered a real sleeper for the draft but he’s generating a little buzz and could wind up getting multiple free-agent offers if he goes unselected. He’s got good size at a shade over 6-3, 201 pounds, and he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.51 seconds at his pro day. A former track standout in high school, Harvey’s vertical jump was 40 inches and he posted a broad jump of 10 feet, seven inches, which is tops what any receiver did at the combine.
He caught 53 passes for 694 yards and five touchdowns last season and excelled in the Wildcats’ upset of Temple with nine receptions for 142 yards and the game-tying touchdown.
Harvey is raw and will need some work, but he has the frame and athletic ability that teams look to develop. Stay tuned.
