Pos: 
Tough, nasty small-school linebacker who may also get consideration at fullback. Instinctive, quick to read and diagnose and a dominant run defender. Breaks down well, effectively uses his hands and defeats blocks on his way to the ball carrier. Plays faster than his 40 time, shows a closing burst and drives through tackles. Displays terrific short-area quickness, easily changes direction and moves well laterally. Remains disciplined with coverage assignments.
Neg: 
Short and overmatched by tight ends in coverage. Lacks great pursuit speed. Slow getting back to balance off the initial hit.
Analysis: 
Harris is a natural football player who seems to enjoy contact and is always working to get involved in the action. He’ll offer possibilities at inside linebacker in a 3-4 alignment or possibly as a lead blocker, but more than anything else Harris could make a roster this September as a special-teams demon.
