I think we will devolop Harper and let Tate walk in FA i don't see us tagging him and he is a UFA i don't see us trading Tate though.
I don't see Tate leaving. Him and Wilson bonded pretty fast from what I've seen last year. I think Rice is more likely to be gone than Tate.
We won't have the money to pay Tate.

Hopefully someone throws a crapload of money at him and we can get a nice compensatory pick out of him.


Either that or the team cuts Rice/forces him to take a big pay cut so we can retain Tate. Depends on the type of year he has.


I would way rather let go of Rice then Tate. I think Tate is a better fit with Wilson, is not injury prone like Rice, and is a better player over all. Plus he is younger.

I donít see why people are so keen on letting Tate go. I think that would be a huge loss.


Agreed. With the way the team values youth, I won't be surprised at all if they just cut Rice and sign Tate to a cheaper deal. Harvin, Tate, Harper sounds fine to me.
It sounds tiny. Which doesn't sound like something Pete would go for at all.

Rice may be taller than Harper, but Harper is generally the bigger receiver. I think the team would be fine with the elite slot weapon, the deep threat in Golden, and the big possession receiver in Harper. Their "big" target, should come from their eventual replacement at the #2 TE spot that seems inevitable.

Boldin is a great comparison. Harper is less physical, but pretty much all Oregon receivers are great run blockers

He was a QB at Oregon, but wanted to make the switch to WR... did so, but then transferred to KState and had his best WR successes there.

Quote:
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll envisions fourth-round WR Chris Harper as an outside "X" receiver.

Golden Tate is Seattle's incumbent X. Harper probably won't overtake him as a rookie, but Tate is entering a contract year. "We donít see him as a slot guy," Carroll said of Harper. "We see him as an outside receiver. Heís got some real special qualities that weíll learn and make use of. But weíll see him mostly at X." Harper figures to focus on playing special teams as a rookie.

I'm liking this pick more and more each day. I think he could be a real nice WR for us.

Like his route running and his ability to use his body to shield defenders, especially on the shorter routes.

Indeed. He could be as good as BMW was on a slant route (A guaranteed reception).

That (slant route) is something that been seriously missing. I thought Miller would be the guy they'd use for it, but apparently they needed him more for blocking than receiving. OL improvement may be the key to the fix.

Harvin will be running slant routes all day on sundays. Hes a terrible route runner and its an easy way to put the ball in his hands. We'll also see Miller run more routes this year in my opinion. He had a coming out party in that Atl game.

What other elements does Harper bring? Take a look back at the NFL Combine and you'll find a 4.55-second 40-yard dash, a 35.5-inch vertical leap, and 20 repetitions at 225 pounds on the bench press - the most among all wide receivers at the workout.

For the Seahawks, Harper's measurables, a willingness to initiate contact, a strong lower body that can handle a cornerback's press off the line of scrimmage and an ability to see defenses as a quarterback sees them translates into a player who can blossom into a productive playmaker given the right situation.

I love this guy. I'm definitely going to be pimping Chris Harper hard.

Quote:
Kansas State's Chris Harper recorded the highest Wonderlic intelligence test among receivers at the Combine, registering a 33 out of 50.

The fact is more interesting than indicative of NFL success, but it's another feather in the cap of an underrated pro prospect. Harper is a big (6-foot-1, 229), physical run-after-catch receiver with strong hands. He projects as a third- or fourth-round pick, but could develop into a quality No. 2/possession threat.
