Will Harris, Boston College

One of my favorite later round prospects at the safety position is Will Harris out of Boston College. Looking at him from a pure physical standpoint, Harris appears to be a high-upside kind of prospect.

For starters, he stands 6-foot-1, weighing in around 205 pounds. His Combine performance was quite impressive, too. Harris ran a solid 40-yard dash at 4.41 seconds. He impressed in both jumps as well, posting a 36.5-inch vertical and 123.0-inch broad jump. Harris also ran a respectable 6.91 seconds in his 3-cone drill and put up 20 reps on the bench press. Overall, like I said, he’s gifted physically.

Over the last two seasons, Harris has totaled 75 and 83 tackles, respectively. But, the big knock may come due to his lack of production on the ball. Last season, he failed to come up with a pass breakup and had only one interception. In four seasons, he only has five picks overall.

Harris will have to get a better feel for anticipating routes and shadowing his man a bit closer if he’s going to carve out a role as a pro. Again, he’s an incredible athlete. But, there are things to improve and that’s why he’s a later target.
