Chris Harper: Video Highlights for Former Kansas State WR

1 of 6

    Chris Harper is not only one of the most explosive wide receivers in the 2013 draft class, but he is also one of the most exciting offensive prospects in recent years.

    Harper is coming off of back-to-back solid seasons at Kansas State, despite playing in an offense that struggles to move down the field through the air.

    Harper possesses electrifying speed and great size, and the projected mid-round draft pick can explode for a huge play at any time.

    Here are Harper's top highlights from his college career at Kansas State.  

Incredible Diving Catch vs. Missouri State

2 of 6

    Harper's amazing athleticism is on full display in this play. 

    The junior easily beats his man when he cuts to the inside, but Harper's separation on the play is not fully utilized by quarterback Collin Klein, who throws the ball to the outside of a cutting Harper. 

    Despite the poor pass, Harper manages to make an adjustment and make a spectacular diving catch downfield. 

    The catch was one of three receptions for Harper in his 2012 season debut against Missouri State. 

Touchdown Catch in Double Coverage vs. WVU

3 of 6

    This catch was one of the most unbelievable in all of college football in 2012. 

    Despite being pressured in double coverage, Harper manages to beat both defenders inside in a downfield slant route. 

    In the back of the end zone, Harper then makes an incredible adjustment to an underthrown ball by Klein and makes the catch with two defenders draped over him. 

    The play was not only an example of Harper's strong hands and lightning speed, but also his terrific route-running. 

Running, Throwing and Catching Touchdowns at Oregon

4 of 6

    Before transferring to Kansas State, Harper was a dynamic player in an explosive Oregon Ducks offense.

    Harper completed a unique trio of touchdowns in 2008 while in Oregon, as he managed to throw, run and catch a touchdown. 

    This unbelievable statistic shows just exactly how dynamic and explosive of an athlete Harper really is.  

Catch and Run vs. North Texas

5 of 6

    Harper's incredible athleticism is once again on display in this long catch-and-run against North Texas last season. 

    Harper catches a short toss from Klein on the sideline and then manages to evade a tackler behind the line of scrimmage with a terrific sidestep move. 

    The 23-year-old then uses his blazing speed to race down the sideline for a dozen yards before utilizing a solid block and a nasty sidestep move to pick up another chunk of yardage. 

    The play shows just how dangerous Harper can be with the ball in his hands in the open field. 

Sideline Catch-and-Run vs. WVU

6 of 6

    Harper uses a variety of his solid moves in this big catch-and-run against West Virginia in 2012. 

    The junior wide receiver uses his size and speed to get separation on his defender in single coverage, and he makes a first-down catch on a curl route.

    After the catch, Harper uses superb footwork to evade his defender and sneak down the sideline for another huge chunk of yardage.

    Even while being tackled at the end of the play, Harper uses his imposing size to power forward another few yards.
