RJ Young explains why Marvin Harrison Jr. is his No. 2 prospect for 2024 NFL Draft
RJ Young is in the process of breaking down his top prospects for the 2024 NFL Draft. It’s no surprise Young is high on Ohio State Marvin Harrison Jr. and he is not shy about his feelings on the superstar wideout for the Buckeyes.
In terms of the wide receiver position, Young does not see another player like Harrison in college football for the 2023 season. Young also has Harrison as his No. 2 prospect in the draft, ranked only behind USC quarterback Caleb Williams.

“I think the comp here is pretty outstanding and right on the money in Ceedee Lamb at Dallas (Cowboys) who just set the franchise record for catches at Dallas with 107,” said Young. “There is no other WR in the sport like him today. Not with his size, not with his route-running, not with his speed off the line, not with his physicality.”

As for his outlook for the 2023 season, Young believes Harrison is the perfect option for a new quarterback with the Buckeyes with his ability to beat double teams and free up other receivers:
“If you are the quarterback at Ohio State — looking at you Kyle McCord and Devin Brown — every time you drop back you should spot 18,” Young explained. “If there are two people on 18, he’s open. If there are three people on 18, someone else is running wide open with someone on him, but that’s because you’ve got three people on him because two ain’t enough. That’s who Marvin Harrison Jr. is.”

Outlook for Marvin Harrison Jr.
After seeing limited action as a true freshman while playing behind Chris Olave, Garrett Wilson and Jaxon Smith-Njigba, Harrison burst onto the scene with 1,263 yards receiving and 14 touchdowns as a focal point of the offense in 2022. He was also dynamic in the Peach Bowl before an injury forced him to the sideline.
Projecting his numbers for the 2023 season is a bit tougher with a new QB for Ohio State but Harrison is not lacking motivation after missing out on the Biletnikoff Award a season ago.
