KC Chiefs: Mark Harrison Making An Early Impression

The KC Chiefs are thin at receiver, we know that, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have talent on the roster that could help over come the issue. Mark Harrison, a free agent wide receiver pick up by John Dorsey, is making an early impression.

 

As a first year pro, the 23-year old Harrison sat out the entire 2013 season due to a foot injury. The New England Patriots signed Harrison as an un-drafted rookie free agent last May, and were hoping to get something out of the young prospect.

In his final season at Rutgers, Harrison caught 44 passes for 583 yards and six touchdowns, flashing signs of great ball skills and a capability to score on almost any play. (stats via CFB Sports-Reference.com)

The 6-foot-3, 235 pound receiver is making his presence felt at camp, making highlight catches like you see above and making the most out of the repetitions he’s getting. His big body and quality speed are enough to catch your eye and it seems he knows how to use his abilities.

 

With the pads now on, hearing news of Harrison, and others, making plays at the receiver position is music to Chiefs fans ears. I love his size and intangibles and can’t wait to see him play in the Chiefs first pre-season game on August 7th.

Hopefully, this kid can help turn an area of concern into an area of strength for the Chiefs in 2014.
