Re-grading the Washington Football Team’s 2019 NFL Draft performance
In the summer of 2018, the WFT used the supplemental draft to add Virginia Tech cornerback Adonis Alexander in the sixth round and that negated a pick at this juncture of 2019 draft. However, they did earn a compensatory pick and front office guru Kyle Smith made it count.
North Carolina St. wide receiver Kelvin Harmon was widely expected to be a second-round addition to an NFL roster, but his lofty status dropped all the way until this round and Smith promptly scooped him up. This was nothing short of a coup and Harmon provided excellent value.
Harmon had a very good rookie season with 30 receptions, but no touchdowns. The former Wolfpack star was due to have a huge impact in 2020, but a torn ACL this summer will sideline the talented pass catcher.
Harmon’s future is bright and Washington deserves kudos for their patience and the value obtained with this pick.
