  • Instinctive
  • Can cover backs/tight ends
  • Diagnoses run well
  • Experienced- 3 year starter
  • Good blitzer

Analysis: Harris is a tough football player who can handle his duties in both the run and the pass.  The last two years at Virginia Harris has stuffed the stat sheet with 10 interceptions and 26 pass defensed; with only two penalties.  Impressive numbers for a safety in a particularly weak draft class.  I’ve seen mock drafts that have Harris going anywhere from the second round to the sixth; either way, whichever NFL team that drafts Harris is getting an experienced ball player that will work hard to hone his craft on the field.

Need to improve:

  • Smallish frame
  • Lacks confidence as a deep safety
  • Needs to wrap up better

Analysis: In my opinion, I believe Harris would be a first round pick if his frame and body size were larger with more bulk/muscle.  His football IQ is off the charts, and his instincts on the football field are above average.  Harris needs to wrap up better at the point of impact, he accrued over ten missed tackles in 2014 alone.  Look for Harris to move up draft boards once interviews begin to happen.  General managers and coaching staffs will love this kid.

Round prediction: 4th round
