Sophomore Wide Receiver Steals the Show at Ohio State Pro Day

Several future high picks and NFL starters were on the field trying to make a name for themselves at the Ohio State pro day, but the player who generated the most buzz isn't even eligible for the 2023 NFL Draft. According to the Athletic's Akron Jackson, wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. stole the show and had scouts buzzing.

Harrison Jr. hauled 77 receptions for 1263 yards and 14 touchdowns for the Buckeyes last year, his sophomore season. He led the team in all three categories, paving the way for quarterback C.J. Stroud to potentially go first overall in this year's draft. Harrison Jr. is the son of Marvin Harrison, an Indianapolis Colts legend and one of the greatest wide receivers of all time. The eight-time Pro Bowler and three-time All-Pro amassed an incredible 14580 receiving yards and 128 touchdowns over 190 games with the Colts.

Harrison Jr. should be one of the 2023 NFL Draft's premier prospects. He appears to have inherited his father's frame and silky-smooth athleticism, and Ohio State has become a factory for NFL calibre wide receivers in recent years. In 2022 alone, Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson both exceeded 1000 receiving yards as rookies, and fourth-year Washington Commander Terry McLaurin earned his first Pro Bowl. With any luck, Harrison Jr. will have a chance to carry on two complementary legacies.
