Exclusive Draft Profile: Victor Harris

April 8, 2009

For those of you who haven’t read my draft predictions, I have Victor “Macho” Harris being drafted by us in the second round. That is why today I have finished his draft profile. I am going to really start cranking these out, so look under the category draft profiles on the sidebar so you can see them all, because they will NOT all fit on the front page of the site. 


Victor Harris

Victor Harris

 

Name: Victor “Macho” Harris

Position: Cornerback

School: Virginia Tech

Height & Weight: 5-11 / 198

Class: Senior

What I Think: Victor Harris is a potential 2nd or 3rd rounder that at one point I have had projected as a Bronco. After being a 3 year starter at Virginia Tech as both a Cornerback and also at some times a Wide Receiver he has shown that he is one of the top 10 Cornerbacks in the draft. He has good size and is very quick and athletic. Harris has great instincts with excellent hand and ball skills. He rarely drops interceptions and has potential to be a situational Wide Receiver. Harris is very elusive in the open field and might be able to contribute as a return man in the pros. Harris is great at jamming Receivers at the line of scrimmage as he is very tough and physical. His tackling is great and can give a knock out hit if he wants to. He rarely ever messes up on his tackles and reminds me a lot of Champ Bailey in that respect. Harris also can add value to his team as a run stopper at Cornerback. He seems very confident in his abilities and has become a great leader in his Senior Season after being named team captain. His experience is also of high value. While elusive though, his speed is average at best and while a good returner it is more because of his moves in the open field versus his speed. He only runs a 4.63 40 yard dash which can be credited with a lack of a burst. Harris can be too aggressive at some times and will sometimes take ill-advised chances when he tries to make a play. In the NFL he might have trouble turning and running with receivers in man on man coverage. He also needs to work on some of his technique and his transition may be originally rough into the NFL but it might be worth it in the long run. For some teams he might not be the best fit especially for impatient ones. 

Draft Grade: B+
