Harris had an amazing career at Lindenwood, where he played in 48 career games, had 633 tackles, 34.0 for loss, 8.5 sacks, along with 6 interceptions, and 14 pass breakups, proving to be a pure play maker on defense. He creates havoc on defense, he is very relentless when going after the ball carrier, he always wraps up on tackle attempts, and he is a sure fire tackler. He is also a hard hitter, he is good in coverage, he gets good pressure on the quarterback, and he is a good pass rusher. He is also a tough nosed player. He is a bit undersized, and he does not have elite linebacker speed, but that does not hurt his game at all. With that said, I view Harris as a late day 2, to early day 3 pick, where he will be a key part of the linebacking core for whoever picks him.
