2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Cliff Harris, CB, Oregon
This is the big deterrent for NFL teams. Harris obviously has talent, but it goes without saying he needs to grow up in a hurry. Like many great big play corners, he shows terrific instincts to get in position just at the perfect moment to slap the ball away or pick it off. He can go up with some serious athleticism and catch the ball with ease away from his body. The downside is that he will sometimes abandon his assignment in order to make a play. His high risk and high reward style of play just won't work for some GMs and coaches.
Harris doesn't have elite straight-line speed but he's very quick in and out of his cuts. When he remains patient, he has a nice bend in his lower half. He's a bit undersized, but plays big at times as a willing, but unremarkable tackler. Harris tends to watch the quarterback too often and can be beat by double moves or a well-timed pump fake.
