As a pass rusher, he tallied 27 total pressures, which included 19 QB hurries, 2 QB hits, and 6 sacks on the season.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • He’s outstanding on the blitz, showing initial burst and quickness with his first step, with the core strength to bounce off blocks and overpower backs in blitz pickup, closing fast on the quarterback.
  • Handles misdirection well with quick change-of-direction ability. Comes downhill quickly against the run when Harrell has an open lane.
  • Harrell combines the athleticism of a chase-and-tackle defender and the toughness and physicality of a classic 4-3 Mike.
  • Ferocious against the run and very good in coverage, is extremely versatile. Despite his build, he holds up well in traffic and makes a lot of plays by engaging a block, shedding, and pursuing.
  • Good all-around athlete with very good short-area quickness and fluidity. Very good playing strength and has worked hard in the weight room, adding bulk and filling out his frame.
  • Has the dynamic athleticism to be a force on the edge. He’s a fluid mover with bend-and-dip flexibility as a pass rusher, and he uses his long arms to ward off blockers.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Harrell lacks elite traits in the pass rush and will need to develop a counter move.
  • Limited vision and is easily fooled by misdirection. Lacks range and lateral agility in coverage.
  • Harrell is in a hurry to get upfield but shows poor instincts when locating the ball against the run.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
