BIOGRAPHY: "Three-year starter awarded all-Conference honors since his junior season. Totals last year included 46/6/8 after 36/5/11 as a junior. Experienced return specialist who averaged 34.7 yards on six kick returns, with one score of 100 yards as a junior."

POSITIVES: "Fundamentally sound cornerback rarely challenged by opposing quarterbacks. Quick pedaling in reverse, fluid turning his hips, and displays a good burst to the ball out of his plant. Shows a burst of closing speed, lays out or extends to defend the throw, and possesses good hands for the pick. Reads receivers eyes, and gets his head back around, and then locates the pass in the air. Occasionally lined up at receiver as a senior, and displays solid pass-catching skills. Strong, gets off blocks and does a nice job defending the run."

NEGATIVES: Bites on receivers moves and occasionally falls asleep. Lacks top-end speed and struggles staying downfield with opponents.

ANALYSIS: "Harris is a nicely built cornerback, yet he lacks the speed for the next level. He could be effective backed off the line of scrimmage or in a zone system. Harris also brings with him the element of return specialist."

PROJECTION: Fourth/Fifth Round
