SELECTED BY: Bills Round 5 (11)

3.5
Position: Class:
Senior
School: Conference: Ht., Wt.:
6-2.5, 235
40 Time:
4.85

BIOGRAPHY: "Three-year starter awarded all-conference honors since his sophomore season. Senior totals included 75/1/6, when he spent time at both safety and linebacker. Junior totals included 74/2/7 after 68/4/8 during his sophomore campaign."

POSITIVES: "Tough, run-defending prospect with marginal ball skills. Plays disciplined football, stays with assignments, and is a solid open field tackler. Explosive at the point, aggressive in all aspects of the game, and goes hard to make plays. Quarterbacks the defense and very much a leader on the field."

NEGATIVES: Lacks sideline-to-sideline range and late getting to the flanks. Does not display a burst of speed. Struggles moving in reverse and late reacting when the ball is in the air.

ANALYSIS: "Harris has been a tremendous player on the college level, yet his physical skills do not project all that well to the NFL. He's best making plays up the field and must develop his skills at outside linebacker to impact an NFL roster."

PROJECTION: Fourth/Fifth Round
