Brandon Harris
Round 2, Pick 60
Position: CB
Class:  3Jr
School: Miami-Fl
Conference: Atlantic Coast
HT: 5-9.5
WT: 191
40 Time: 4.46
Biography: Moved into the starting lineup midway through his freshman season and stayed there the next two years. All-Conference selection after his sophomore and junior seasons. Had 45/1/11 as a junior and 58/2/15 as a sophomore.

Positives: "Talented cover corner who has shown the ability to shut down opponents. Quick and fluid pedaling in reverse, loses nothing transitioning to run with opponents off the line, and easily flips his hips in every direction. Stays with receivers out of their breaks. Displays an explosive burst to the action out of his plant, quickly closes to the play, and has the ability to recover from mistakes because of his speed. Plays with physicality. Holds his ground against blocks or sheds them to make his way up the field and defend running or screen plays. Wraps up tackling."

Negatives: Seems tentative and slow to react in zone coverage. Struggles against large opponents.

Analysis: Harris possesses the physical skills and shows the underlying fundamentals at the cornerback position to be a number one at the next level. He has the ability to be used in man coverage or backed off the line of scrimmage and should quickly break in with the first team as a rookie in the NFL.

Projection: 1-2
