Brandon Harris Scouting Report
Brandon Harris
Brandon Harris - Miami (FL) (HT: 5-9½ - WT: 191)
Combine 40: 4.51 - Position Rank: 4 of 45

Positives: Has average build and decent speed for the position... Is a very solid man-to-man defender, has good athleticism with quick hips and fluid footwork... Plays the ball well in the air, has good instincts... Has a quick closing burst in run support and when tackling after the catch, possesses good change-of-direction ability and explosiveness... Is a hard worker with a good motor and passion for the game, shows willingness to learn and improve... Has pretty good body control, keeps feet under him when changing directions or turning around in coverage... Plays with more physicality than his size would suggest, not afraid to get a body on bigger receivers or come up and attack the ball carrier... Durability does not seem to be an issue, has not missed time due to injury.

Negatives: Marginal production in three years at Miami (132 tackles, four interceptions, four forced fumbles)... Rather short and recorded a 34.5" vertical at his pro-day, will have trouble battling taller receivers... Not the surest tackler, flows well to the ball, but will miss tackles or give a lot of extra yardage to bigger backs... Needs to work on zone coverage skills, is not especially quick to read and react, much better at mirroring receivers in man coverage... Will miss tackles in the open field, needs to do a better job of breaking down in space.
