Strengths:

Length, quickness and power. Harris is able to combine the three and give pass protectors fits. If that doesn’t work he has a nasty spin move he can unleash on you. Great first step, has the flexibility to bend and the balance to keep moving when his body is horizontal to the turf. Has a great push, pull where he uses his speed to power conversion on blockers. Fantastic motor. The man is a born pass rusher.

Weaknesses:

The run game. Doesn’t use his hands enough, gets wrapped up. Once a blocker gets his hands on him he has issues disengaging. Lacks an elite level punch. Though he excels at one-gaping he struggles sometimes with his read/react responsibilities in the running game.

Harris’s skill set is on full display here. Explosion off the ball, ability to bend and finish all in one play. Beautiful.

Pro Comparison:

Cliff Avril

Overall Review:

I am a big fan of Missouri’s Charles Harris. Harris had a pretty bad day in Indianapolis at the Combine, but his tape screams explosive, talented pass rusher. Charles is a legitimate speed rusher screaming off the edge with his speed, power, and ability to bend. Harris has an excellent first step and consistently blew by tackles at Missouri and when that didn’t work he had a rather impressive spin move he could easily set offensive lineman up with. Harris has some work to do in the run game but would instantly upgrade most teams pass rush. The scheme his senior year was not the best suited for his skills. Look for an uptick in productivity he hits the right club in the NFL.
