Scouting Report: Strengths
- Has a knack for getting open and is a quarterback's best friend - passers just need to toss the ball in his area and he'll come down with it.
- He’s also a catch-and-run threat, a creative runner who has good vision in the open field; he’ll be an option to return kicks as well.
- Harris also proved to be a force in catch-and-run situations. A violent runner who transitions upfield quickly after the catch, Harris has the speed to pick up chunks of yardage once he’s broken the first tackle.
- A slippery runner with elusive footwork. Has little to no wasted movements between the reception and burst upfield.
- Although he is more of a possession target than a field stretcher, he fiercely competitive demeanor and run-after-catch ability make him a major threat in the middle of the field.
- Balanced, savvy route runner with top field awareness, setting up and selling routes beautifully.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- Needs to refine his routes and become a better all-around receiver. Has some ball security concerns. Durability concerns because of his size.
- Lacks ideal size and strength and is a ·mallish target with a lean, frail-looking frame. Can be overmatched at the line of scrimmage when physical !le/enders get their hands on him. Struggles in press coverage and was knocked on his back more than a few times.
- He’ll be coming to the NFL from a wide-open spread offense in which Harris ran a limited route tree.
