Just wanted to update my bandwagon player Harvin, as well as a few of his teammates. An interesting note- no Dolphins big wigs were present for the workout- but Percy Harvin, Louis Murphy, AND Cornelis Ingram have private workouts scheduled with the Dolphins.
Lets start with Harvin:
Gill Brandt liked what he saw.
Harvin (5-foot-11 3/4, 193 pounds) did not disappoint. He kept his running-drill numbers from the combine, but he had a 37 1/2-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot, 1-inch broad jump and did 22 (incorrectly listed as 20- GP) bench-press lifts. He looked exceptional in position drills and caught the ball well. He also showed great explosion.
An NFC Scout was also highly complimentary- and believes the UF wide receiver drought is up. Per the PBP Inside UF Blog ((here). :
Here is what one NFC scout had to say: "I thought he did excellent. Percy and all of these guys run a lot of good, polished routes that will carry over to the NFL. Percy, he’s got good hands. You see it on tape, though. I didn’t need to come here to see that."
Louis Murphy :
Scouts like Murphy as well, who looked very good running routes. The same NFC scout said:
All these guys are very polished," an NFC scout said. "These guys (Harvin, Murphy, CI) are excellent prospects."
Like Harvin, he stood on his combine 40 yard dash.

Cornelius Ingram looked very good catching the ball. He drew "oohs and ahhs" with one spectacular catch.
Mike Mayock has him as his 3rd rated TE and had this to say:
"It was good to see him in person," Mayock said. "Obviously, with the knee injury there wasn't any senior tape on him. He ran about what I expected (in the 40), around 4.7. He's not a 4.6 or a 4.55 guy, but he's very fluid.
"And what I like best about him is the athletic ability to get in and out of the breaks and use his hands to catch the ball naturally.
"I was very impressed."
Overall, he showed why he had both football AND basketball scholarship offers from Florida
Per Gil Brandt:
Another player who opened eyes Wednesday was tight end Cornelius Ingram. After sitting out this past season because of a knee injury, Ingram is healthy again and showing it on the field. He ran 4.72 and 4.69 seconds in the 40-yard dash, had a 9-foot, 6-inch broad jump and was sharp in position drills.
Right now, he could go as high as the 3rd round, with only 5 months recovery from a torn ACL. Ingram is a true class act of a player and he is someone I will be rooting hard for in this draft.
