Scouting Report: Strengths
- Harris has the kind of turn-and-run fluidity to be used in man coverage as well, able to run with tight ends and running backs.
- He’s at his best in the pass rush. While he’s undersized for the edge, He is flexible and twitchy, showing an explosive first step and the ability to dip and bend around blockers.
- He explodes off the line with a quick first step, with agile feet to counter inside and closing burst to finish plays.
- Accelerates rapidly and has a great feel for angles. He isn’t huge, but Harris packs a pop.
- Flashes nimble feet to chase running backs and mobile quarterbacks to the sideline when lined up at end. Spins off blocks to get back into the play.
- Harris shows good speed and closing burst when blitzing.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- Stands up well against the run but is very pursuit-conscious and will take unneeded wide angles.
- Size will be a problem. Harris doesn’t have much in the way of take-on skills, struggling to shed once blockers get into his body due to short arms and a relative lack of upper-body strength.
- He’ll also need to be covered in the run game, more of a Will than a Mike in a 4-3 alignment.
