New Hampshire wide receiver R.J. Harris (15) runs past Southeastern Louisiana defensive back Tyler Stoddard (23) during the second half of an NCAA college football Division 1 championship quarterfinal game in Hammond, La., Saturday, Dec. 14, 2013. New Hampshire won 20-17.

The Green Bay Packers hosted New Hampshire receiver R.J. Harris on an official visit Monday, according to an NFL source.

The 6-foot, 201-pound receiver recently wrapped up a distinguished career with the Wildcats where he caught 310 passes for 4,328 yards and 36 touchdowns in four years, including three consecutive 1,000-yard campaigns.

Harris enjoyed his greatest success as a senior when he led the Football Championship Subdivision with 1,551 receiving yards. His 100 receptions and 15 touchdowns ranked second and third in FCS, respectively.

Harris registered a 4.52-second time in the 40-yard dash at his pro day last month with 18 bench reps, a 37½-inch vertical jump and a 10-7 broad jump. He's projected by most pundits as a possible late-round pick or undrafted free agent.

Harris joins a growing list of players who have either visited or are scheduled to visit with the Packers.

That list, based on Press-Gazette Media and other reports, includes Texas A&M Commerce receiver Ricky Collins, Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty, Illinois tight end Matt LaCosse, Delaware State defensive end Rodney Gunter, Maryland defensive tackle Darius Kilgo, Houston defensive tackle Joey Mbu, Marshall cornerback Darryl Roberts and Texas Southern defensive back Tray Walker.
