Overview:

Harris was a beast at Missouri, he had over 130 tackles, 34.5 tackles for loss, and 18.0 sacks. He gets good pressure on the quarterback, he is a dynamic pass rusher, and he is a play maker on defense. He has good size height wise, he also has good speed, he is a disruptive defender. He easily gets around the Tackle, and he uses his speed to get around the Tackle in pursuit of the quarterback. He is on the light side, so the question will be where does he play? Can he add weight as be a defensive end, or will he be a outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme. Anyway, I expect Harris to be a 1st round pick
