School: Conference: Ht., Wt.:
6-2, 223
40 Time:
5.20

BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded varying degrees of all-Conference honors and all-America honors since his junior season. 2008 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award winner after passing numbers of 71.5%/4,747/41/7. Junior totals included 71.9%/5,705/48/14. Totaled 4,555 yards passing as a sophomore.

POSITIVES: Harrell is an intelligent quarterback with a great sense of awareness on the field. The inability to throw the deep pass leads to missed opportunities for the offense, and it will keep Harrell from ever winning a starting job in the NFL. He could find a home as a backup in a timing offense, and Harrell�s quarterback intangibles would be an asset on a roster.

NEGATIVES: Cannot drive deep passes and under-throws receivers down the field. Struggles zipping the outs or firing the ball into the tight spots.

ANALYSIS: Proficient college signal caller with marginal physical skills for the next level. Patient in the pocket, buying as much time as necessary for receivers, displays outstanding field vision, and goes through progressions. Remains poised, natural looking off the safety, and displays the ability to place passes where only his receivers can make the reception. Throws terrific corner routes, putting air under the ball, and lets receivers run to the pass. Puts touch on passes, and throws a catchable ball.

PROJECTION: 7-FA
