Poor Duron Harmon.

This kid has worked his tail off, and has a good amount of talent, but will undoubtedly catch a lot of criticism in 2014. The reason for this, is the players that will be at his side all year long.

Darrelle Revis, Brandon Browner, Devin McCourty, Alfonzo Dennard, and even Logan Ryan.

That is a talented bunch. But we always need to find a way to criticize something in the NFL, so we will single out the “weak link” in this group, and bash them to death. And as unfortunate as it may seem, Duron Harmon will be that man.

But he has a chance to prove us all wrong. He has already clinched the second safety spot next to McCourty, now he must go out and kill it in camp. I like his game a lot, however when you are in a defense as loaded as this one is, you need to elevate your game even more. Hopefully Harmon can do that.
