    Would love to see him as our return specialist. I'm an ECU alumni and don't like not having a Pirate on the team to pull for.

    For those that are into the draft game, where do you rate Harris and what team do you think would be his best bet to catch on?

    I've watched him play every Saturday for 4 years now, so I know he's not the fastest guy on the field, but he gets separation and is one of the hardest guys to tackle that I've ever seen. He's got good ball skills and makes the tough catch over the middle. I'm hoping he'll train for the combine and improve his 40 time. Right now, I see him as a low 3rd to 4th round pick.

    Harris redshirted as a freshman and proved himself a threat as a runner (20 carries, 197 yards, one touchdown), receiver (26-246-2) and returner (8.1-yard punt return average) in 2007. In 2008, he led the Pirates in receiving (58-654-1), rushed for 76 more yards and averaged 23.5 yards per kickoff return, starting five times but missing the last four games with a broken foot. As a junior, Harris was named first-team All-Conference USA as a receiver (83-978-7), ran for 149 yards and five scores, and was second-team all-conference as a returner after returning three kickoffs to the end zone (27.0 yard average on 37 returns).

    Release: Fair speed off the line and can threaten the seam if free, but lacks the explosiveness to beat man coverage with just his speed. Usually lines up in the slot and does not face much press coverage. Will need work on using his hands to free himself from pro defenders. Needs to come off the line with more authority and push his man up the field before making his cut.

    Hands: Good hands and body control considering his lack of experience at the position but is inconsistent. Displays excellent concentration on the ball in the air, has made a few circus catches. Snatches passes thrown outside his frame, but drops routine throws and fails to adjust to high or low passes -- especially when he hears footsteps. Fights off defenders in traffic; usually wins the battle for the ball. Passes will get through his hands into his body on occasion, must improve getting his hands into position before the ball arrives.

    Route running: Raw as a route-runner but has the quick feet athleticism to succeed with coaching. Fakes out corners with exaggerated moves and strong cuts to get inside or outside position, but will also run directly into them when heading down the seam instead of using his hands to beat them cleanly. Flashes dropping his hips, patting his feet and coming strong out of a cut but is often lazy on short out routes, rounding them off. Used on a lot of quick screens to get the ball in his hands easily. Willing to go over the middle and take the big hit. Needs to come back to his quarterback on scrambles.
