We got a steal bc Harris is football player with great instincts and toughness. Not to mention a hell of a tackler. I vote safety, but thats just my opinion
Please. Harris is every bit as fast as most starting CBs.

Harris didn't get invited to the combine because he went to a nowhere school and didn't set the world on fire while there, instead he looked like a solid journeyman. He then posted damn good numbers for any CB at his pro day.

Go ask Sam Shields, starting CB (when healthy) for the Green Bay Packers how being at the combine is based on raw athletic talent. He only ran a 4.30 flat at the Miami pro day and didn't even get invited to the combine. I mean, major D-1A school, all 40 time, still no combine invite. Totally proves that he's just not fast enough for CB.
