Evaluation notes

Harris is a big and strong offensive line prospect who is used to having his way at the point of attack. Once he is able to get his hands on a defensive lineman he is almost certainly going to win that battle and more often than not with some authority. He spent a lot of time playing right tackle in 2015 and showed the ability to move in space and pass block effectively.

Harris moved full-time to defense for his senior season, but is fully expected to play interior O-line in college because he can run block and pass block effectively he should not be a liability in any one particular area. He shows the ability to get out and make block in space on the second level, but the quicker linebackers in the college game could potentially give him some issues. - Greg Powers
