The Cleveland Browns are looking for a new slot wide receiver and rookie Mike Harley is an interesting name to watch in training camp at the position.
One of the Cleveland Browns biggest questions for training camp this year will be who will take over as the slot wide receiver. The Browns released veteran Jarvis Landry who had been the team’s primary player and is looking for a long-term replacement.
Some have suggested the 99th overall pick David Bell, but there is another rookie to watch on the roster.
Harley is an interesting player from Miami (FL) who flashed some nice athleticism at his pro day running a 4.46 40-yard dash, with a 10-foot-2 broad jump and 35.5 verticle jump. On tape, it’s easy to see the athleticism as he goes up for the ball at makes tough catches in traffic.
Watching his film you will see a lot of similarities to Jarvis Landry, often it will be 3rd down and 4 and Harley catches a 6-yard pass for a first down. He’s a player that is always aware of what he has to get on a play to keep the drive going. Harley is the definition of a player that takes what the defense gives him and has reliable hands.
But he also has the big-play ability and can run away from defensive backs with really nice speed and burst. He does a good job to track the ball while it is in the air on the deep pass and he never gives up on a play.
Harley is a player that is probably a long shot to make this roster but he is an efficient player with reliable hands in the right place and at the right time.
