Cary Harris CB 6' 180 USC

Harris was a seldom used reserve as a freshman, but was thrust into a starting job as a sophomore and he made the most of it. Harris had 48 tackles, 1.5 for loss and an interception during his first year as a starter. With that year under his belt, Harris had a remarkably similar year as a junior, finishing with 48 tackles, two for loss, and an interception. As a senior, he had 33 tackles, four for loss, and two interceptions.


Cary Harris is an athletic corner with very good speed. A decorated high school running back, Harris made the switch to defense immediately upon arriving at USC. In his two years as a starter you can see his athleticism standout. He does a good job changing direction and keep up with receivers on the field, and his speed allows him to run with most players. Once a hole in his game, Harris has gotten tougher and is now extremely physical and not afraid to throw his body aroundt. To add to his value, Harris does have some experience returning kicks during his career so that could be something else to help a pro team out at the next level.


Harris has a thin frame and must get stronger to compete at the next level. He has trouble with physical receivers, and that is a weakness that will only get worse in the NFL. Harris has not shown the best ball skills during his career. He does a great job of staying with his man but does not make as many plays as you’d like a top flight corner to make.


Cary Harris has come a long way during his college career. His body has not change much but he went from someone that was timid when asked to tackle to one of the most physical corners in the draft. He is not afraid to help in run support or get physical with receivers. The lack of forcing turnovers is something that could play a role in where he is selected but Harris has the skills to be a productive NFL corner.
