Marvin Harrison Jr. Does Not Appear for Scheduled NFL Combine Press Conference

Ohio State Buckeyes Marvins Harrison receiver Did not appear for his scheduled press conference Friday morning.

Ohio State wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. made it clear he was not running drills during his week in Indianapolis at the NFL Scouting Combine. 

He did not make it known he wouldn’t be showing up in general.

Harrison, a projected first-round pick and the expected first non-quarterback to be drafted did not appear for his scheduled combine press conference Friday morning. 

Harrison is not expected to speak in Indianapolis and will not meet with the media until at least Ohio  State’s Pro Day later this month.

“Marvin Harrison is not here. He is not going to be speaking here. I don’t have any other information,” an NFL PR spokesperson told reporters on Friday morning.

The standout wide receiver has been a projected first-round pick since his breakout season in 2022. He already said he would not be working out at the combine or at Ohio State’s pro day and plans to let his tape do the talking.

A source tells that Harrison did not need to work out to prove his value as the best offensive player in the draft or to prove he was the top receiver in the class.

Currently, Harrison is projected to be a top-five pick, garnering interest from the New England Patriots and Arizona Cardinals. 

While Harrison will not work out this week in the house his father and Peyton Manning built, he did participate in medicals and measurements. Harrison is officially 6' 3 1/4" and 209 lbs. He also has 31.88" arms, 9 1/2" hands, and a 77 1/4" wingspan.

Harrison is viewed as the best prospect since Calvin Johnson in 2007 after back-to-back 1,000-yard campaigns.

Last season in his final year with the Buckeyes, Harrison proved to be the nation’s No.1 pass-catcher, earning the consensus All-American honor and the Biletnikoff Award. 

Harrison finished the year with 67 catches for 1,211 yards and 14 touchdowns.
