He is likely to go top 5, and top 10 for sure. I basically figure we just paid a 7th rounder and a mid round next year to move up 15 -20 spots in the first round and in way you slice it, THAT is a good deal.
That's a really great way of looking at it. Harvin's a massive talent, and we paid pennies to "move up" and grab him. Yeah, his contract is going to be massive, so there's a difference between him and a rookie talent. But he's also proven he can dominate in the NFL, and he's still young... we've got him for his prime.
