2009 NFL Draft Prospects: <br> Victor Harris Profile
Victor Harris, 6-0/194
Victor Harris' Scouting Report By Matt McGuire
Strengths: Huge size for a corner with good strength ... Consistent playmaker throughout his career ... Very experienced ... Aggressive football player who makes the big hit ... Game-changing ball skills ... Knack for the clutch play ... Shows great awareness in zone coverage ... Times jump balls well ... Athletic ... Displays good tackling technique ... Smooth hips ... Understands coverages and is smart ... Well coached coming from a program with great pedigree ... Impressive skill set.
Weaknesses: Timed speed will go under microscope ... Questionable acceleration issues; needs to close on the football more quickly ... Occasionally gets too high out of his backpedal ... Gambles in coverage more often than he should.
Summary: At one time I thought Harris could be a top 10 pick because on film he is such a great playmaker, and I stand by how much I like him. Might not time in the low 4.4s, but he is still athletic, and consistent playmakers do not grow on trees. Ideal fit in the Tampa 2, but he can still play press man coverage. Underrated prospect in the shadow of the current tier one corners. A great combine, which I don?t anticipate, could get him in the top 20 picks.
Player Comparison: Rashean Mathis. These big corners have great ball skills and are great at supporting the run.
