Size –6′ 3″ – 307 lbs – 5.21 40 yard dash (verified)
Strong Points –Adequate size, very strong. Aggressive and goes all out every play. Quick to react and is consistently around the ball. Best versus the run. Knows how to use his hands. Can handle a double team. Strong in the lower body and can anchor versus double teams. Makes plays on effort. Marginally good athlete. Should be scheme versatile.
Weak Points –Size to play in the nose. Lacks speed and a burst. May be just a two down player at the next level. Not a top athlete and a bit mechanical.
Summation –Guys like this are fun to grade. Harrison doesn’t have a special trait other than his aggressiveness, strength and top competitive nature but he comes to play on every down. Plays on the nose or as a DT for Stanford. As tough as they come with quick reactions. Quick off the ball to get penetration and disrupt the run game. While not overly big he can hold the point and handle double teams. Has quick hands, can shed quickly and is a good two gap player. Pass rush production comes on effort not athleticism as he is just a marginally good athlete with some quickness and balance. I see him as a rotational player at the next level. Can play in any scheme and get snaps on the nose, either DT position and even as a 5-tech. You will want a better athlete but he makes up for it with his hustle and determination. A day two selection who the coaches will love. Players like this have very solid careers. More suited to play on the nose for Bills but may be able to get some snaps at the 3 as long as it’s not full time.
