Biography: Two-year starter who finished with 22 tackles/7 tackles for loss/1.5 sacks as a senior and 35/5.5/3.5 as a junior.
Positives: Hardworking interior lineman who gets the most from his ability. Explodes off the snap, displays strength in his lower body and pushes blockers off the line of scrimmage. Forceful, works his hands throughout the action and keeps his feet moving on contact. Displays solid first-step quickness, consistently doubled by opponents and plays with good pad level.
Negatives: Limited athlete with a marginal closing burst. Not effective rushing the passer or making many plays behind the line of scrimmage.
Analysis: Harris is a nuts and bolts type of defensive lineman who does the little things well. He occupies blockers and allows teammates to make plays on the ball. An underrated player, Harris is likely to land in the last day of the draft, but he has the skills to be used as a rotational lineman and could eventually develop into a starter.
