The Texans added some help to the secondary with Miami’s Brandon Harris with the 60th overall pick in round two. Harris was rumored to be a first-round pick, but fell to round two right in the lap of the Texans.
Here’s a Scouting Report on Harris from NFL Draft Watch:
The Skinny: This Miami man is a do-everything, versatile cornerback that may lack an elite ceiling. However, it would be a mistake to underestimate this jack-of-all-trades even if he is a master of none. NFL defensive coordinators will instantly fall in love with his ability to contribute in all situations. Combine that versatility with his leadership, love of the game, reputation as being coachable, and the fact that he brings it on every down and you get a player we believe should have a long and profitable professional career. The only questions are whether Harris will declare following the 2010 or 2011 season…and if he does, how high will he go? If he can add functional playing weight and test well at the NFL Scouting Combine it might be difficult to keep Harris out of the first round. Even if he doesn’t we don’t see the ACC product slipping further than the second round. Whenever he ends up hearing his name called we’re confident the team that lands him will be very pleased. Look for Harris to be a First Team All-ACC selection in 2010 and potentially challenge for All-American honors.
