Mr. Irrelevant 2012: Chandler Harnish Has Perfect Team to Carve out Long Career
Posted By Richard Langford On April 30, 2012 @ 7:50 pm In Colts News | No Comments
Northern Illinois QB Chandler Harnish has a great chance to not only make the Indianapolis Colts  roster, but to have a long NFL career.
The Colts  are completely reshaping their offense this year. That began with them spending the No. 1 overall selection on QB Andrew Luck, and it continued through the whole draft.
That rebuilding process includes an entire reshaping of their QB position. Not one of the three QBs to throw a pass for the Colts last season remains on the roster.
Luck will be the unquestioned starter on this team but the spots behind him are up for grabs. Luck and Harnish will join Drew Stanton, 27, and Trevor Vittatoe, 24, as the only QBs on the roster.
Stanton has the inside track on the backup spot. He is the only QB on the roster to ever see any NFL action.
It will be important to have a QB with some experience on the roster. However, the third QB spot is a different situation entirely.
The Colts will want to identify a long-term backup QB for Luck. Harnish has the ability to fill this role.
Harnish has solid size and a decent arm. He also had a prolific college career. He was a four-year starter. During that career, he set an amazing 30 school records.
In each of his final three seasons, Harnish had a completion percentage of at least 61.7 percent, and his last two years he averaged 24.5 touchdown passes.
Harnish will be given every opportunity to win a roster spot, and he has the ability to do just that.
