Tony Pauline, "scouts high on Harp" 


"Harper shows tremendous quickness and run after the catch skill,"

Stay healthy my friend. Needs to show what he can do now without Carr, plus can't miss any games. Go 'DOGS!

Yeah...healthy is key. If he gets hurt this year it will seriously effect his draft stock.

I also think this year is going to be a bit different for Harper in that he won't have the benefit of Isaiah and Davante burning routes alongside him. He's going to have to show what he can do as a primary weapon. I'm not saying he's not up to the task, but there's a lot of things Harper will have the chance to prove this year. No reason to think he can't succeed, but there will challenges ahead.

I'm curious to see whether they line him up as the X WR where Davante was last year, or put Aaron Peck in that spot.  Peck fits the mold of what they want at that position...has to be more consistent though.

Jmckune is right, Harper really has to stay healthy.  Two consecutive groin surgeries doesn't scream "durable".

I will be interesting to see if they use Harper or Peck at the X position. Peck obviously has the measurables you'd want, but Harper has the production. He also has a knack for coming up with the ball in the endzone. Whether or not he's the X, I think Harper will factor into this offense pretty regularly if he can stay healthy.

Injury history will scare an NFL team away faster than a criminal record or drugs.

Cole Popovich, who put up eye popping combine numbers (actually wasn't at the combine, but at Fresno State's pro day) couldn't even get a free agent tryout because he'd never made it through an entire season healthy. And you are talking about a kid that every year he was in the program, surpassed all the measurables Logan Mankins put up.

I talked to Coach Hill once about Cole, and he said if he'd stayed healthy, he has no doubt he'd have been the highest drafter OL Fresno State had ever had...when healthy, he used to do things on the OL that elite NFL OL did.

I really, really hope Harp can stay healthy. He certainly has the NFL bloodlines with his dad having been a stud at Nebraska and with the 49ers.

I believe Peck will be the X...he has the body type and physical tools they really like at the position.

I would think that Harper would fill that X spot. Being alone with trips to the other side would force teams to play him 1:1 or use a safety over the top. Harper and Peck are the same body type for a WR. Peck is just bigger.

I'm inclined to agree here. A lot of what I saw in spring featured Peck at the X. My only issue with Peck, and it's been mentioned several times already, is that he has almost zero consistency. Peck had a real chance to make an impact in the Las Vegas Bowl with Harper out, but he had several drops and that's something I had noticed from him throughout the year. 

I like Aaron and think he would make for a great X, he just needs to get his head into the position and adopt that commanding attitude. As it plays out right now, Harper has the mentality of an X and plays like the featured receiver. I'm thinking Peck needs a game like he had against Hawaii (obviously more receptions than just the 3) and he will be fine. In other words, he just needs a big game to boost his confidence.

Interesting note re. Cole Popovich-- he's a GA(graduate assistant OL coach) at Utah State under former FSU OL coach Mark Weber.
