Washington selected rookie receiver Kelvin Harmon in the sixth round of the NFL Draft from North Carolina State, and he could be a steal for the Redskins. Washington has a suspect receiving corps with Josh Doctson, Paul Richardson and Trey Quinn as the top options, and Harmon will compete with fellow rookie Terry McLaurin for targets. It would not be a surprise to see Harmon lead Washington in several receiving categories this season, and he's worth a late-round flier in deep seasonal leagues. He's worth selecting with a third-round pick in rookie-only drafts.
The Redskins selected Harmon in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 206th overall. Harmon (6-foot-3, 221 pounds) was a borderline dominant producer at North Carolina State and was originally though of as a second-round prospect, but perhaps no one damaged their stock more at the combine than Harmon, who ran a 4.6-second 40-yard dash before plodding his way through the vertical (32.5 inches), broad jump (117 inches) and agility drills (11.47 agility score). He was extremely efficient and posted good volume with the Wolfpack, though, making 177 receptions for 2,665 yards and 16 touchdowns on 279 career targets (63.4 percent catch rate, 9.6 YPT). Even with his dreadful athletic testing, it's generally difficult to post production like that unless you're working with some real skill. Washington will hope those skills prove more important than his lacking physical tools.
