BIO: Three-year starter and All-Conference selection as a senior after totals of 69/1/2. Junior numbers were 77/3/1 after career-best 114 tackles as a sophomore.
POSITIVES: Effective zone safety best facing the action. Instinctive, diagnoses plays and takes good angles to the action. Works to get involved and wraps up tackling. Has a burst of closing speed and is outstanding in run defense.
NEGATIVES: Marginal ball skills and abilities in man coverage. Only average size/speed numbers.
ANALYSIS: A steady defender the past three seasons, Harper has starting possibilities as a zone safety in a two-deep system.
