Marvin Harrison Jr. won’t participate in drills at NFL scouting combine: Report

INDIANAPOLIS – Marvin Harrison Jr. is attending the NFL Combine this week. He just won’t be doing any workouts or participating in any drills.

Harrison, the former Ohio State wide receiver widely projected to be the first non-quarterback selected in April’s draft, will meet with interested NFL teams but has decided to skip all forms of on-field testing both at the combine and at Ohio State’s Pro Day, according to Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer.

Harrison, a two-time All-American, the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year, and winner of the Biletnikoff Award as the nation’s top receiver, is a strong candidate to go No. 4 overall in the draft to the Cardinals.

Breer also reported that Harrison has not hired an agent and is relying on his body of game film and track record as a hard worker to justify skipping on-field work at the combine. It’s not uncommon for some top prospects to skip drills and individual parts of the combine.

Harrison Jr., son of former Colts receiver and Pro Football Hall of Famer Marvin Harrison, combined for 144 receptions for 2,474 yards and 28 touchdowns in the past two seasons for Ohio State. He opted not to play in the Buckeyes’ Cotton Bowl appearance.
