Ourlads' Profile:

2019 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about WILL HARRIS: Boston College, 6010 207 4.39. Three year starter from Suwanee, GA. Had consistent playing time as a freshman. Instinctive safety with solid overall skill. Reads run/ pass quickly and reacts with no wasted movement. Leads with his hands and plays off blocks on the move. Plays the run with a sense of urgency and is physical making the hit. Tracks moving downhill and adjusts well in space. Has range from sideline to sideline. Reliable tackler with good form and wrap. Rarely out of position. At his best in the box but rotates well to the deep middle. Can play the deep hole and get over the top of routes on both sides. Good feel for zone coverage. Aware of multiple routes in the zone and is normally quick to react to the ball. Takes good path on the throw and lets receivers know he’s there. Big hitter after the catch that forces fumbles. Has the speed and mirror ability to match slot receivers and tight ends. Catches blocks at times rather than punching. Can get tied up with a block and leveraged. Doesn’t always drive through a tackle and can give up yards after contact. Not the best ball skills as he goes for the big hit more often than the ball. On rare occasion will have a lapse and not close a void between zones. A two way prospect who can make a team as a solid back up, nickel safety, and special teams’ ace. He has been outstanding on kick coverage units in college. 2018 stats: 75 T, 1 TFL, 1 QBH, 1 INT. BTR:left 4.84, right 4.76. OSR:1/ 24. Fourth/fifth round. (A-31 1/4, H-9, VJ-38.5, SS-4.12).
