A four-star recruit and top-20 cornerback prospect nationally, Harris drove down interstate 64 from Richmond to Charlottesville to play college football. He started 7 of 11 games as a true freshman (26 tackles, two pass breakups) and 5 of 10 games his sophomore year (19 tackles, one interceptions, four PBUs). He started 9 of 10 games in 2015 (34 tackles, three for loss, one interception, six PBUs), missing two games with a shoulder injury. He missed most of the next two years with injuries, playing in two games in 2016 (three tackles) and one game in 2017 (one tackle). Harris rebounded nicely in 2018, starting 8 of 13 games played and recording 36 tackles, 1.5 for loss, two interceptions, and four PBUs.

Draft Projection
Priority free agent
Overview
Harris has rare size, speed and explosiveness traits that could make him a coveted priority free agent, but his injury history, modest ball production and inability to match play to the traits are likely to leave him undrafted. There are physical check marks in his favor, but he will need to play a much more instinctive brand of football to cover NFL receivers.
Strengths
  • Good size on long, angular frame
  • High-end explosive testing with 39-inch vertical and 11-7 broad jump
  • Ran 4.45 40-yard dash at his pro day
  • Foot agility for quick backpedal
  • Has flat-footed downhill burst on throws and in run support
  • Size and length to aggravate the catch point
  • Plus body control and balance key his tackle approach
  • Consistent wrap-and-finish tackler
Weaknesses
  • Sixth-year senior with two season-ending injuries in background
  • Stalled hip flip to acceleration transition
  • Shows early panic when allowing vertical separation
  • Make-up speed doesn't match his testing number
  • Decelerates when turning to find the football
  • Slow to read and close on comebacks
  • Pronounced delay to click and close from the top of his drop
