2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Dwayne Harris, WR, East Carolina

Dwayne Harris is not a number one wide receiver, but he could be a great slot receiver and return specialist in the NFL. After three and a half years of catching passes and returning kicks, Harris is working his way up the Conference USA record books in all-time receptions, all-purpose yards and kickoff returns. Even as a freshman Harris returned every punt East Carolina received and added 26 receptions. The following year he was returning a majority of the kick-offs and turned into a very dangerous receiver, catching a team high 58 passes.

By the time he was an upperclassman, Harris was earning all-conference accolades. The 2009 season was a very special one for Harris. On top of his amazing 83 catches for 978 yards and seven touchdowns, he returned 37 kick-offs for a smooth 1,000 yards and three more scores.

Harris is generously listed at 6-0 and his lack of size will be an issue come draft time. However, Harris has proven to be a very productive player and should be a fine third or fourth wide receiver on most teams and a dynamic returnman from day one. Without the threat of being a top receiver, Harris' stock is not too high, but he should be a solid third or fourth round selection.

3/27 Update: Harris' pre-draft workouts have not gone well. During the week of practice for the Senior Bowl, Harris was not as explosive as many had expected and he dropped way, way too many passes. Harris then followed up that performance by running a 4.53 40-yard-dash at the NFL combine. Harris is not a speedster, but for a player who measured in at just over 5-10, he needs to be faster. Harris is very elusive, but he has to be able to get open and catch the ball before that skill becomes necessary. At this point, Harris' stock has dropped to the later rounds.
