Mike Harris, CB, Florida State

Harris spent two years at El Camino Community College in California before transferring to Florida State. As a JUCO standout, the cornerback returned two interceptions for touchdowns and a fumble for a score. In his first season in Tallahassee, he made 41 tackles and tied for the team lead with four interceptions. Harris enjoyed his best college campaign as a full-time starter in 2011. He was second on the team with 58 tackles (six for loss), had one sack, returned his lone interception for 89 yards, and led the Seminoles with nine pass breakups and 10 passes defensed.

The Miami, FL native has decent size at 5'11'' and 195 pounds. He generally runs in the low-4.5s in the 40-yard dash and he has been clocked as fast as 4.42 from that distance. Harris is outstanding in the run department. He is a surprisingly big hitter and he has a knack for the backfield with great instincts. That physicality also translates to his good work engaging bigger receivers within five yards of the line of scrimmage. He needs to improve his pass-coverage fundamentals if he is going to be a shutdown corner at the next level. Early in his career Harris will likely play in nickel situations and contribute on special teams. The tools are there for him to eventually become a starter at cornerback. Look for him to be drafted in the fifth round of the 2012 NFL Draft.
