Nick Harwell put up huge numbers through three years at Miami of Ohio, but off-the-field trouble led to a transfer for his senior year. Harwell was Kansas' top wideout, but didn't see the production he was able to compile in the MAC.

Harwell is a solid route runner with very respectable speed. He adjusts to the ball well and can be trusted to catch it when the ball reaches his hands. Harwell is an instinctive football player who knows how to find space.
Harwell has below average size for the NFL level, and lacks the speed or athleticism to compensate for it. His straightaway speed and IQ at the position led to huge numbers at Miami OH, but he had more trouble getting open at the Big 12 level. Doesn't profile particularly well as a downfield threat or short range possession receiver.
Harwell doesn't have the measurables to get himself drafted based on ceiling alone, so he'll likely have to go the route of getting into a camp and showing what his instincts and skills are worth at the position. He'll need to be prepared to do some work on special teams if he hopes to find a spot on a 53-man roster.
