Overview

Harper has the build, lateral quickness and ability to contribute on third down necessary to eventually become a starting running back, but is not there yet. Currently lacks the power running style and vision required to consistently pick up yards in the NFL. When he presses the hole, runs with good pad level, and initiates contact, he has the look of a future load-back. Can make defenders miss in the hole and in space at times but needs to lower his shoulder more often. Has a lot of third down potential. Possesses good hands and is a capable pass protector. Harper's a mid-round prospect with upside.

Analysis

Strengths

Harper has great size and good speed. Flashes the ability to be a one-cut, downhill back. Displays good elusiveness at times for a big back. Understands pass protection concepts. Very productive pass-catcher with good hands. Can extend outside his frame and catch passes in a crowd. Team mentality guy with special teams experience.

Weaknesses

Raw prospect lacking game experience. Has never been a full-time back. Needs to lower his should more often and use his size. Vision and patience need to continue to improve and needs to be more decisive. Only possesses adequate acceleration to the line. Must watch his pad level.
