2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about MALIK HARRISON: Ohio State, 6025 246 4.64. Two-year starter, Columbus, OH. Third-team All-America and first-team All-Big 10 in 2019. Good size for the position with instincts to fit inside gaps. Fundamentally sound with a downhill shuffle on his key read and a burst to the gap once he “sees it”. Patient with read and is disciplined in reactions. Can take an open window and make plays in the backfield. Has a burst to the outside and make plays in the alley. Changes direction well for a tall linebacker. Physical attacking blockers and can lay a hit when he tackles. Usually squares up and finishes. Can take on bigger blockers and hold the gap. Has a feel for zone coverage and takes drops with good spacing on receivers. Finds the throwing lane and can read the receivers and quarterback. Has blitz skill and shows a burst blitzing inside gaps. Closes quickly and can chase across the field. More of a downhill player than lateral movement. At his best with the play in front of him or he is play side. Although physical he has some trouble re-directing off a block and can lose leverage and get upright. Sometimes comes in too high on a tackle but rarely misses. Has some trouble reacting to crossing routes as lateral transitions are not coverage strength. Solid prospect in the right scheme and could develop into a full-time starter at Mike. Some teams may feel coverage is questionable for full time duty. Senior Bowl notes: Showed instincts with downhill reactions and fits at inside gaps. Solid take-on ability with good hand use. Took zone drops with depth and awareness of pattern pressure. Ball reactions were demonstrated with an interception. Some trouble with crossing routes. 2019 stats: 75 T, 16.5 TFL, 4.5 sacks, 4 PBU, 1 QBH, 1 FR. Edge speed:left 2.19, right 2.22. OSR:2/17. Third/ fourth round. (A-32 7/8, H-10 1/4, BP-DNP, SS-4.32).
