Ronnie Keith Harmon (born May 7, 1964) is a former professional American football player. After a standout career at the University of Iowa in the Big Ten Conference, he played for 12 seasons (1986–1997) in the NFL. A 6", 220-lb. running back, Harmon was selected by the Buffalo Bills in the 1st round (16th overall) of the 1986 NFL Draft.

Harmon was better known for his receiving rather than his rushing capabilities, a reputation he earned after committing four fumbles, all of which resulted in turnovers, in a 45-28 loss for Iowa against UCLA in the 1986 Rose Bowl Game.

Harmon played four seasons with the Buffalo Bills. In his final game with Buffalo, a 1989 AFC Divisional Playoff game at the Cleveland Browns, Harmon dropped a potential game-winning touchdown pass from Jim Kelly with :09 left in the fourth quarter.[1]

Harmon also played in Super Bowl XXIX for the San Diego Chargers in their 49-26 loss against the San Francisco 49ers, a game in which he led his team in receiving with 8 receptions for 68 yards. Ronnie's brothers Kevin and Derrick also played in the NFL.

Harmon was a consensus all-city football player at Bayside High School in Bayside, Queens in New York City.[2]

Ronnie's brother Kevin replaced him at running back after his graduation from Iowa.

"'I have to stay with my teammates out in New Jersey, but the first thing I'm going to do when I arrive is to head for Manhattan,' said Harmon, a consensus all-city football player at Bayside High School in Queens when the Commodores were a powerhouse in the late 1970s and early 1980s."
