BIO: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors after his junior and senior campaigns. Totals last season included 39/7.5/2.5 when he intercepted two passes and broke up three more. Posted 43/7/13.5 as a junior.
POSITIVES: Explosive pass rusher coming off a tremendous senior campaign. Displays outstanding first-step quickness, immediately alters his angle of attack and consistently makes plays down the line of scrimmage. Rarely off his feet, plays with good pad level and is explosive in all his actions. Fierce moving up the field and outstanding in pursuit. Effective dropped off the line in space.
NEGATIVES: Lacks the size to line up in a three-point stance on an every-down basis. Marginal speed to be considered at linebacker.
ANALYSIS: A self-motivated defender who is constantly flying around the action, Haralson was unstoppable last year and elevated his draft stock. A classic .tweener who can stand up over tackle in a 34 alignment or be used as a pass rush specialist.
