#87 Jacob Harris HIGHLIGHTS
#87 Jacob Harris pro day results
Strengths: He has a massive frame for a receiver, is physical, and has impressive speed at six-foot-four inches tall. He is a defensive back's nightmare off the line of scrimmage as he will bully them in press coverages. He uses his long length and strong hands to push the defender off the line to get by them with his long strides. He has excellent body control and uses his size well in play. He is a huge target and catches radius with his tremendous wingspan. He is an excellent jumper who will go up and will predominately win all of the 50/50 balls. He can stretch the field vertically and has a great reaction in finding the ball. He can be lethal after catching quick passes using his physicality to break tackles and run the distance. He will clean out the lanes when need to block down the field.
Weaknesses: He is still a raw player who has limited playing time from high school to college. After one year of high school and only 24 collegiate games, he still could gain more knowledge and skill. His excellent pro day has increased him stock some and which team will take a chance on drafting hi early. Soccer background, he has good feet but needs to control his feet from stumbling from coming in and out of his routes. More than likely, they will need to contribute to a special team to make a roster and simply a project that can turn into a career vertical threat and red-zone killer.
