Harvin catching on quickly

Minneapolis Star-Tribune - [Full Article]

The media got its first live look at Vikings first-round pick WR Percy Harvin in Thursday’s OTA and he looked every bit as fast and explosive as advertised. Harvin lined up in a number of different spots, including in the backfield and the slot, and he’s also getting reps as the punt and kickoff return man. We talked to Harvin after practice and here is some of what he said: “It feels great,” he said. “There’s no better experience than what I’m going through right now. I’m glad to get the combine and all the stuff over with and finally lace it back up and get on the football field. It’s a wonderful feeling.” (On the illness that forced him to miss the rookie minicamp) “I think it got a little blown out of proportion because of the swine flu. But I had extreme dehydration and a little flu going through the airport. It was dangerous at the time but it was nothing but dehydration. I got some fluids in me and I was back on my feet.” (On learning the offense) “I study a lot so I don’t mess up too much on the field. I was told at a young age, if you mess up, mess up going full speed. Anything I’m doing I’m going full speed.”
