    I understand the Steelers like him as well, and they're very good at pick late round gems.

    Harris may mirror Rat's athleticism, but not his "want to". Harris does not like to chase plays that are out of his area.


    Hustle guys who are almost as big and athletic:

    Pannel Egboh, Stanford, 6'6 285(more aggressive as a 3-4 DE than a 4-3 DT)
    Zach Potter, Nebraska, 6'7 285 (all day sucker)
    Rulon Davis, California, 6'5 280 (mean, tough, highest upside)

    Can Roy Miller play some 34 DE as well?

    He's a bit short at around 6-1 or so, but he's about 310-315 lbs, and he can run a sub-5.0 40. Plus, he plays hard and hustles.

    We're interested in him as well.

    Ra'Shon Harris
    DT, Oregon

    RA'SHON HARRIS MEASURABLES
    Height: 6-3 Weight: 297
    40-yard dash: 4.88 10-yard dash: 1.79
    20-yard shuttle: 4.66 60-yard shuttle:
    Broad jump: 8-10 225-lb. bench: 28
    3-cone drill: 8.18 Vertical jump: 27
    Wonderlic: 20-yard dash: 2.90

    War Room analysis
    Strengths: Has good size; is a load at the point of attack and tough to move. Shows ability to plug the middle on runs right at him.

    Weaknesses: Shows poor endurance and motor. Lacks mobility and agility. Is not a playmaker. Shows extremely limited range.

    Bottom line: Harris has a huge frame that makes it tough to create movement against him, but is currently nothing more than a spot player because he's in poor shape and lacks the athleticism, motor and agility of big run-stopping nose guards in the NFL. However, he performed well enough during the week of the East-West Shrine Game that a team will likely take a late-round flier on him with an eye toward developing his raw talent.

    Roy Miller

    War Room analysis

    ROY MILLER MEASURABLES
    Height: 6-1 Weight: 310
    40-yard dash: 4.99 10-yard dash: 1.69
    20-yard shuttle: 4.75 60-yard shuttle:
    Broad jump: 8-7 225-lb. bench: 36

    Strengths: Is a strong and athletic DT who is a consistently disruptive force. Has quick feet and good snap anticipation, allowing him to get off the ball in a flash; shoots gaps or gets into the backfield to blow up plays. Is too quick to be reach blocked. Shows the strength to stand up run blockers, stack the point of attack and push offensive linemen into the backfield, shutting down the inside run. When pass rushing aggressively, shows the foot quickness and hands to defeat one-on-one pass blocks by bull rushing or using quick pass-rush moves.

    Weaknesses: Does not finish the play and make the tackle often. Looks soft-bodied on film and did not become a starter until his senior season, which is always a concern.

    Bottom line: Miller was largely unproductive prior to his senior season, but in 2008 he really stepped up and was a consistently disruptive interior force who basically shut down the inside run and blew up a ton of plays in the backfield. He has uncommon quickness, agility and athleticism for such a big, strong DT, which enables him to be quicker off the ball than nearly all the tackles we have evaluated in recent seasons. It is definitely a concern that he does not finish enough plays, because players like that often struggle to be as disruptive in the NFL as they were in college. Overall, we really like Miller and believe he will become a good starting DT in the NFL. While we believe he is going to improve his ability to finish plays as he gains experience, he will probably always be more disruptive than productive when it comes to tackles. Additionally, while he has what it takes to be a good DT in a 4-3 scheme, we think he would be a DE in a 3-4 scheme like the Chargers or Cowboys use.
