Charles Harris

Defensive end
School: Missouri | Conference: SEC
HEIGHT/WEIGHT: 6-2.5 / 253 | 40: 4.82 | DRAFT YR:2017


Projected Round
Two-year starter named Second Team All-SEC in 2016, leading Missouri with 12 tackles for loss, nine sacks and 10 quarterback hurries while adding 61 tackles, two forced fumbles and two pass breakups. Earned Second Team All-SEC honors as a sophomore, leading the conference with 18.5 tackles for loss and making 56 tackles with seven sacks.
Explosive college pass-rushing defensive end who will receive consideration as a 3-4 outside linebacker. Fires off the snap with an explosive first step, plays with lean and gets leverage on opponents. Displays tremendous quickness in his overall game, uses his hands to protect himself and is rarely off his feet. Easily bends off the edge, immediately alters his angle of attack and displays speed moving to every direction of the field. Possesses a closing burst, moves well laterally and shows speed chasing the action in pursuit. Displays a variety of moves getting off blocks, occasionally stands up over tackle and can be tough to stop. Focused on by opponents but consistently disrupts the action.
Undersized and get out-positioned or engulfed at the point. Handled by tight ends. Will struggle defending the run at the next level.
Harris is a solid athlete and a disruptive force but must improve his playing strength and step up his play defending the run. He offers a lot of possibilities in a system which asks him to make plays up the field.
