Overview

Harris has enough ability and a polished skill set needed to succeed as a slot receiver in the NFL who can also contribute as a returner. Hard-working player who was productive in college. He can beat man coverage underneath and find openings in zones but doesn't possess the pure explosion to beat tight coverage. Not a threat to beat you deep but can create some big plays evading the first defender. His willingness to go over the middle and his effort while run blocking demonstrate his great toughness. Harris should come off the board in the middle rounds of April's draft.


Strengths

Harris is a crisp, refined route-runner. Gets in and out of his breaks in a hurry. Can find soft spots in zone coverage. Plucks and snatches the ball away from his frame. Almost built like a running back - can break tackles in the secondary and make the first man miss. Willing to catch the ball in traffic and productive doing so.

Weaknesses

Doesn't have impressive height or top-end speed. Can struggle to separate from quicker, faster corners. Won't consistently challenge the defense vertically and won't take the short pass for six. Doesn't catch the ball over his shoulder naturally. Sustained a season-ending foot injury in college.

Grade

6.4
