greetings Raider nation
Just a Vikings fan who is curious as to what we should do with Napoleon Harris. Some seem to think he'll line up as a strongside backer and others say he's a mike backer. I confess I didn't watch alot of his play and I'm wondering if anyone here, having watched him play more extensively has any thoughts on how we should use him. Thank you.

Napolean Harris showed early promise by starting at MLB in his rookie season and supplanted long-time starter Greg Biekert. He had a very solid rookie campaign and showed lots of promise.

He can play outside (as he did last year), but has some problems in coverage because he's stiff in the lower-body. He's a rock and hits hard, but he's got more straight line-speed , so if he takes the wrong angle, it's over (as in a bad thing for Harris). He's not really super quick or fluid so I think his ideal position is at the MLB.
