Marvin Harrison Jr. to the LA Rams in the 2024 NFL Draft?
Does anyone not believe that the LA Rams will not select him there? He is a star collegiate wide receiver, who is an NFL legacy. He is a 6-foot-3 202-pound college receiver who is already putting up eye-popping numbers. And he is just 20 years old. But, before you answer, let me share this little tidbit of information:
The more that I think about it, the more I believe that the LA Rams will be tempted to select Marvin Harrison Jr. if he is on the board, no matter who else is available. Now, here's why:
Reason III: Rams receiver room needs recharged
When you consider the LA Rams wide receivers going into the 2023 NFL season, who truly intimidates defenses after veteran wide receiver Cooper Kupp? The very fact that there is so much debate among Rams fans over whether the next most targeted receiver will be tight end Tyler Higbee, wide receiver Van Jefferson, wide receiver Ben Skowronek, or wide receiver Tutu Atwell says a lot about the lack of receivers who have jumped to the forefront of their teammates.
Can he block though? I'm so glad that you asked.
He is an eager and motivated blocker. While he may need a bit of refinement to his technique, he definitely checks all of the boxes. So the question is, will any team target him early in the 2024 NFL Draft ahead of the LA Rams?
Two teams that could struggle this year are the Arizona Cardinals and the Houston Texans, and the first round pick to both teams are held by the Cardinals. If their quarterback Kyler Murray struggles this season, do the Cardinals abandon his hefty contract and start over? I don't know that they will, although the Cardinals have a new GM and coaching staff that have stressed a need for more accountability.
