Harvin shows ability, durability at pro day

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP)—Percy Harvin gave NFL coaches and scouts another look at his ability and durability Wednesday, running routes, catching passes and doing anything asked of him at Florida’s annual pro day.

Harvin was clearly the main attraction, overshadowing fellow receiver Louis Murphy, tight end Cornelius Ingram, offensive tackles Jason Watkins and Phil Trautwein and a few others trying to improve their status heading into next month’s NFL draft.
“All he did was confirm what you already know, which is he’s an explosive athlete and once the ball’s in his hands he’s got a chance to score from anywhere on the field,” Jacksonville Jaguars receivers coach Todd Monken said.

Harvin covered 10 feet, 3 inches in the broad jump, leapt 37 inches in the vertical jump and benched 225 pounds 22 times. He hurried through some shuttle runs and looked as fluid as ever in on-the-field drills.
