Charles Harris – Defensive End, Missouri
Charles Harris is another prospect in the race to be considered the third best defensive end in the 2017 draft.
If the Bucs address this position in the first round then this young man has a chance to catapult himself into the Top-20 and become the name they call when they do.
Derek Barnett’s possible absence from Sunday’s drills opens a door for Harris to establish himself as the favorite in the later part of the first round if he performs strongly.
NFL.com’s combine profile on Harris identifies that his weakness mainly lies within his hand-fighting ability and his strength being quickness and “nimble feet”.
Reinforcing the positive and proving the negatives wrong is what working out for scouts is all about, and if Harris can do so then he’ll certainly stay in the day one or day two conversation heading into next month.
Again, this is an area the Bucs are expected to address early in the draft whether it’s round one or round three.
In a fairly deep pool of talented edge players this year, this one might be hard to pass up at 19th depending on how well he tests in Indy and at his pro day later on.
