Florida Football QB/REC Duo No. 6: Tim Tebow and Percy Harvin
- Tim Tebow: 2006 – 2009 (9,285 career passing yards, 88 touchdowns)
- Percy Harvin: 2006 – 2008 (1,929 career receiving yards, 13 touchdowns)
This is another duo that is impossible to try and actually quantify because trying to assign a position to Percy Harvin is next to impossible. He did finish his Florida career with more receiving yards than rushing yards, though he had 19 rushing touchdowns to 13 receiving.
Technically, Louis Murphy had more receiving yards than Percy in 2008, but Harvin was the main receiver for Tebow during the Heisman campaign of 2007.
In truth, both Tebow and Harvin weren’t a great duo in the sense that they needed each other to be successful. Harvin probably could have been great with almost anyone under center, and Tebow’s strength was more to plow through you than throw over you.
But having both on the field forced teams to decide which man they wanted to sell out on, and the end result was an offense impossible to stop.
