Brandon Harris scouting report

Brandon Harris CB Miami FL
Ht: 5’10″

Wt: 190

Strengths:
Elite athleticism. Has the speed to make up for mistakes. Good ball skills. Willing to help out against the run. Fairly reliable tackler, especially for his size.
Weaknesses:
Undersized. Struggles against bigger receivers. Plays a very soft brand of football; rarely gets physical with receivers and will back off bigger receivers in coverage. Inconsistent. Relies too much on his athleticism; seems to guess a lot and take too many false steps. He’s athletic enough to make up for these mistakes most of the time, but it costs him against the better receivers.
Comments:
Harris is an elite athlete and has all of the raw skills necessary to be a starting cornerback at the next level. However, his lack of size and his inconsistency raises some concerns. The final impression he left as a collegiate player came in Miami’s bowl game in which he was embarrassed by Notre Dame’s Michael Floyd. Harris has 1st-round athleticism, but there are times when he looks like a 4th or 5th round prospect.
