Scouting Report

The Bears set a new franchise low with 18 sacks in 2003 and the addition of Tommie Harris should more than boost that number.

Tommie Harris Scouting Report

Positive: Explosive interior lineman who plays with a relentless motor. Quick off the snap, gets push up the field and bulrushes opponents off the line. Fights with his hands, adjusts off the initial block and relentless in his pursuit of the ball carrier. Moves well laterally, redirects to the action and rarely off his feet. Possesses a closing burst of speed and gets a lot of penetration in the backfield. Quick to read the play or locate the ball.

Negative: Not a knee bender and opponents get leverage on him. Can not immediately alter his angle of attack.

Analysis: A productive player that's been an impact defender since he was a freshman, Harris possesses the athleticism and desire to be a similar type player at the next level Does not possesses the great growth potential but can be used in a variety of systems and should immediately produce as a rookie.
