Charles Harris Scouting Report

"First step explosive with big time aggression and motor. Flashes a variety of moves but is undersized and not the most flexible."

Luke Broderick



Harris' game is quickness, but he's not strictly finesse; he's mean at the poa. His first step and lateral movement is explosive, and he plays with big time aggression and motor.

Shows a variety of pass rush moves. Fairly comfortable in space and excelled in LB drills at the combine. He played on an awful Mizzou team last season and at times had little impact but his motor never waned.



His hand usage can be somewhat pedestrian and he’s undersized. At times he's​ overwhelmed and gives up too much ground at the los. He's not especially flexible though I've seen him bend and run the arc.



Harris is one of my favorite defenders in this class and for a good while this season I had him ranked over Myles Garrett. Aggression, quickness, technique and a big motor is an easy skill set to bank on.

After disappointing athletically at the combine he drastically improved his short area explosion numbers at his pro day. Mizzou has been churning out pass rushers lately and Harris is probably the best of them. His spin move is Freeney-esque but if he gets a little stronger as a pro I think he's John Abraham.

Pro Comparison: John Abraham
