Prospect Profile: Jason Harmon

Jason Harmon School: Michigan State
Ht: 5-11.5 Wt: 209 40: 4.80 Year: 5Sr

Bio: Three-year starter who totaled 105/3/5 as a senior after leading the team in tackles the previous season with 108.

Positives: Consistent defender with a good head for the ball in run defense. Tough, comes up the field and wraps up tackling. Not afraid to take on large ball carriers and keeps the action in front of him. Alert, works well with corners and remains disciplined in centerfield. Reads the quarterback's eyes, makes a decisive move on the ball and displays a good burst of closing speed.

Negatives: Only average playing speed and cannot recover. Not fluid backpedaling, gets turned and has trouble in deep centerfield. Lacks top speed to the flanks.

Analysis: A hard-working and competitive defender, Harmon has size/speed limitations for the next level. Could catch on as a backup in a two-deep system and should be very productive on special teams.
