Kiper, who is also known as a draft guru, said:

Harrison is on track to get my highest pre-draft grade for a wideout since Calvin Johnson (2007) and Larry Fitzgerald (2004)

He highlighted how the wide receiver has everything required for the top picks– size, stellar hands, incredible body control, and blazing speed. Coming off the offseason, if the Chicago Bears go with quarterback Justin Field, Harrison could be an integral candidate for them. The same goes for the Arizona Cardinals if they intend to move forward with Kyler Murray.
