The 27-year-old was selected in the first round of the 2009 draft by the Minnesota Vikings, where he would play four seasons before being traded to the Seattle Seahawks for a first and seventh-round draft pick in the 2013 Draft. He had 19 receptions for 218 yards last season with Buffalo before being placed on injured reserve.
As a freshman in 2006, Harvin had an immediate impact throughout Florida’s run to the National Championship.
After helping lead UF’s offense to its second title in three seasons, Harvin announced he would forego his senior season to enter the NFL Draft. In three seasons, Harvin had 133 receptions for 1,929 yards and 13 touchdowns, while adding 194 rushing attempts for 1,852 yards and 19 touchdowns.
Harvin’s 32 career touchdowns is the most ever by a UF wide receiver.
