Harvin’s role with Jets’ offense still developing (The Associated Press)

Percy Harvin’s role with the New York Jets on Sunday is shrouded in mystery. The newly acquired wide receiver could play a few snaps on offense. ”He’s just getting himself sort of integrated right now, so we’ll see,” offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said Thursday. We’ll see exactly how he can integrate himself for us.” Thing is, the Jets aren’t quite sure how much of the playbook Harvin will have down by kickoff against Buffalo.

NFL Draft Watch: King says Winston is ’10 times’ the prospect Mariota is (Shutdown Corner)

The conversation will grow over the next six months. So let’s start it early. You’re a quarterback-needy team and your choice is this: Florida State’s Jameis Winston or Oregon’s Marcus Mariota. On the surface, it appears easy. Winston has trouble written all over him, with off-field problems galore, and Mariota, the clean record and clean-throwing (zero interceptions in 188 passes this season) quarterback, is the obvious choice. Right? It’s not that clear-cut. Not at all. [ Join FanDuel.com's $2.5M Week 8 fantasy league: $25 to enter; top 21,905 teams paid ] If we are to boil the players down simply on football talent and quarterbacking potential on the next level, Winston — not Mariota — might be the more enticing prospect. So says former NFL quarterback and Yahoo NFL analyst Shaun King. I asked King to ignore character completely, for argument’s sake, and strictly grade each player on their talent and NFL upside. “In my opinion, if I am grading them, Winston is 10 times the prospect Mariota is,” King said. What, then, makes Winston so special? “Physically, he has great size — 6-4, very sturdy build. Built like a pro prospect. Big-time arm — can make all the throws. Great intangibles. Winner. Big-time, big-platform résumé. “He plays his best on the brightest stages. Last year in the Clemson game, the second half of the national title game, this year’s Notre Dame game. Early in the season, second half against [Oklahoma State], he always plays his best in those moments. He just has a knack for it.”

Carr confident despite Raiders’ winless start (The Associated Press)

A winless beginning to his NFL career certainly wasn’t what Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr anticipated coming out of training camp. Yet if Carr is feeling any strain or pressure coming from Oakland’s 0-6 start, he’s not showing it. The 36th overall pick in this year’s draft, Carr is as upbeat and confident as he was when he beat out veteran Matt Schaub for the starting job nearly two months ago. ”Carr’s a rookie but he’s like a veteran in his head,” Oakland running back Darren McFadden said.

Rookie McKinnon making progress with Vikings (The Associated Press)

Jerick McKinnon has had a lot to learn this year, more than just the speed of the NFL and the nuances of Minnesota’s offense. McKinnon spent much of his time at Georgia Southern as an option-style quarterback, carrying the ball for the FCS powerhouse plenty of times but not in a traditional way. The Vikings (2-5) drafted him in the third round, with a pick acquired from Seattle in the Percy Harvin trade, with the belief that he could be a viable alternative to Adrian Peterson. With Peterson on paid leave awaiting trial in Texas on a felony child abuse charge, McKinnon has passed Matt Asiata as the featured runner and topped the 100-yard rushing mark twice in the last four games.
