CFB 24/7  


#CFBTop25: No. 25, Charles Harris, DE, Missouri

After one season as a full-time starter at Missouri, Charles Harris was impressive enough to catch the eyes of CFB 24/7 experts. Harris earned second-team All-SEC honors after registering seven sacks and leading the conference with 18.5 tackles for loss in 2015.

CFB 24/7 is marking the days to the start of the 2016 season by counting down the top 25 players in college football.

Harris enters the 2016 season as one of the premier pass rushers in college football, and is the latest in a seemingly endless pipeline of outstanding defensive linemen coming out of Missouri.

Pulling back the curtain on the vote

Harris -- who is on the Bednarik and Nagurski award watch lists -- received votes from three of seven CFB 24/7 experts, with one top-15 vote. In CFB 24/7's "16 for '16" series, Harris was rated No. 5 on the list of college football defenders most likely to become NFL stars.

What some of our analysts are saying about Harris

"Harris isn't a household name, but he has a big game. He is a polished pass rusher and he should post a bundle of sacks this fall." -- Daniel Jeremiah

"The Tigers quietly have become a football factory when it comes to producing NFL-caliber defensive linemen. Harris is the next Tiger to pique the interest of scouts with a game that's rooted in big hits and splashy plays." -- Bucky Brooks

Where do fans rank Harris?

We asked Twitter users who they considered the best player in college football. It's not a huge surprise that Harris didn't receive a vote. The redshirt junior just now is emerging onto the national radar. The fact that Missouri has produced a large number of draftable defensive linemen -- Sheldon Richardson, Aldon Smith, Michael Sam, Kony Ealy, Markus Golden and Shane Ray -- makes Harris a worthy player to follow this fall.
