As a pass rusher, he produced 24 total pressures, which included 15 QB hurries, 3 QB hits, and a solid 6 sacks on the year.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • He’s best right now against the run, playing with a low pad level despite his relatively tall frame, and Harrell has the violent hands to win at the point of attack.
  • His spin move is already NFL-caliber, and he displays a very good motor.
  • Harrell explodes off the line with a quick first step, with agile feet to counter inside and closing burst to finish plays.
  • Versatile enough to drop and could be viewed as a 3-4 linebacker.
  • He has an excellent feel for working off blockers and knowing how and when to counter as the play goes on.
  • Harrell shows impressive speed and overall athleticism when moving laterally in pursuit as a run defender.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Harrell remains a bit raw, as Harrell is inconsistent with his hand use and lacks violence in his hands
  • Lean lower body - must improve core and leg strength. Suspect body flexibility and tight hips.
  • He’s a little more finesse than power at this point and will have to prove he’s up to the physicality of the NFL.
