Ronnie Harrison draft profile

Strengths:

  • Size
  • Speed
  • Reads QB’s eyes
  • Solid cover safety
  • Route anticipation
  • Blitz talent
  • Solid block shedder
  • Physical hitter

Analysis: Ronnie Harrison possesses an elite combination of size, power and speed. Quick pedal with easy transitions in two-deep. He is comfortable and experienced playing high or low safety. Has good makeup speed. Doesn’t get overly focused on routes. Finds time to read quarterback’s eyes. Capable of quality man coverage against non-explosive receivers. Plays with route anticipation and ability to transition quickly to match. Physical hitter with punishment as his default setting. Takes rapid downhill approach as high safety in run supporter. Rangy with ability to leap into a long-distance tackle when pursuit angle goes askew. Quick to punch and discard blockers. Handles work near the line of scrimmage with desired level of aggression. Has elite blitz talent.

Weaknesses:

  • Lacks patience
  • Needs to be more of a wrap-up tackler than hard hitter
  • Angles of pursuit
  • Complex routes have tricked him

Analysis: Ronnie Harrison’s aggressive demeanor can get the best of him at times. He gets antsy and too willing to overreact to plays. Will lose leverage with pursuit angles and allows talented running backs opportunities to beat him back inside. Needs to play under control and with better patience in open field. Complex routes have given Harrison trouble, biting on fakes. His tackling needs to be refined–he’s too willing to pack the hard hit with his shoulder rather than wrap up the ball carrier with his arms. This will cause many missed tackles in the NFL.

What the execs say: “He’s a feisty guy. Big and athletic but he’s not really the brains of the defense over there. He’s not really ‘that dude’ who runs the show and I don’t think he’s going to be that kind of guy in the pros. He handles his work though.” — NFC team executive
