Pos: 
Large, downhill ball carrier who is also an exceptional pass catcher out of the backfield. Sees the field, effectively uses blocks and quickly gets through running lanes. Consistently turns upfield and runs north/south. Gets a lot of momentum going up the field and is tough to bring down and rarely tackled by the first defender. Displays outstanding short-area quickness and solid footwork and shows the ability to make defenders miss in a small area. Natural receiver out of the backfield, adjusts to the errant throw and snatches the pass away from his frame with his hands. Resilient, fluid when he changes direction and shows the ability to get through the cutback lanes. Does not go down without a fight and picks up difficult yardage. Terrific blocker who displays outstanding strength and the ability to pick up the blitz and control defenders.
Neg: 
Not a truly elusive or creative ball carrier who can make something out of nothing. Struggles to bounce around piles. Lacks the quickness and speed to turn the perimeter.
Analysis: 
Harris is a terrific downhill ball carrier with a versatile game. He consistently picks up difficult yardage and displays himself as a productive receiver out of the backfield and effective blocker. Though he’s not a great open-field runner, Harris will be very productive at the next level in the right system.
