Happy Birthday, Percy Harvin

Today is the birthday of one of the Minnesota Vikings' best and most dynamic players, wide receiver Percy Harvin. The man that wears #12 turns all of 24 years old today.

Harvin was selected with the 22nd pick of the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft out of the University of Florida. He was the recipient of the 2009 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Award, and with good reason, as he caught 60 passes for 790 yards and six scores, and threw in two touchdowns on kickoff returns as well. He is also the first player in Vikings history to score a touchdown in each of his first three career games.

Harvin is the Vikings' leader for combined yardage in a season with his 2009 mark of 2,081 yards (790 receiving, 135 rushing, 1,156 in kick return yardage). It's hard to believe that the guy is only 24, but it's also possible that he hasn't reached his full potential yet, either.

Enjoy some of Percy Harvin's highlights from the past couple of seasons!
