Brandon Harris scouting report

Brandon Harris CB Miami FL
Ht: 5’10″

Wt: 190

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.
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.
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.
