Scouting Report: Strengths
- Relentless and strong off the edge as a pass rusher when fresh. Gets under the pads of tackles to bull rush them into the backfield.
- Harris has an excellent motor and shows the stamina to last deep into the fourth quarter.
- While Harris has the flexibility to dip and bend under tackles, what makes him truly dangerous is his ability to counter.
- He has enough speed to chase and run in pursuit. Harris has the overall athleticism to hold up in space when dropping into coverage.
- Combines excellent power with initial quickness, but one of his best attributes are his violent hands, which he uses with impressive precision.
- He’s effective in pursuit when chasing down backs as a run defender, and he has the athleticism to cover a lot of ground when dropping into coverage.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- Stands up well against the run but is very pursuit-conscious and will take unneeded wide angles.
- As a run defender, he’s too much of a grab-and-drag tackler, lacking violence and too frequently allowing running backs to escape.
- Harris is on the small side and struggles to slip blocks; he’ll need to be covered up in order to make plays.
