De'vante Harris - UDFA

Just been checking out the UDFA's we picked up and started watching highlights of De'vante Harris from Texam A&M.

Check out these highlights and notice a couple of things;

The fact that he completely shut down Odell Beckham Jr.
His very impressive closing speed when the ball is in the air
He also isn't afraid to tackle and has good hands.

Don't sleep on this signing, he could become pretty decent

Re: De'vante Harris - UDFA

this kid can play

De'vante Harris CB Texam A&M 5105 176 4.48

5'10" with 30 5/8 arms hurt his draft stock. 32" arms would have got him drafted. on the plus side he did jump out the building at the combine. 38.5" vertical. Does need some coaching in tackling skills but he is not afraid to stick his helmet in there.

Key words for him Intelligent and Instinctive

We could use another body at the CB position in case last years draftees don't work out.

Re: De'vante Harris - UDFA

PFF listed him in their list of Top 15 UDFAs

"3. De’Vante Harris, CB, Texas A&M: New Orleans Saints
For whatever reasons, De’Vante Harrisn never had any draft stock throughout the entire process, but his tape is pretty special and we had him ranked at No. 69 on our draft board. We talked about him at length on the podcast, but the bottom line is he has some of the slickest movement skills and break on the ball of anybody in this draft class. He allowed just 275 receiving yards and one touchdown this past season and even impressed the year before against Amari Cooper. He doesn’t fit the ideal size profile the NFL covets, and he uses an unusual technique in his coverage, but if a team embraces that and just lets him play, he could be a steal for the Saints in the secondary."

He must excel on special teams to have any shot at a roster spot for 2016 in New Orleans.

Re: De'vante Harris - UDFA

I'm thinking practice squad at best. He'll have to beat out 5 guys for a roster spot.

Lewis
Breaux
Swann
Wilson
PJWilliams
Brian Dixon
Brandon Dixon
Ken Crawley

Re: De'vante Harris - UDFA

Hang on a damn second there.

Are you telling me this kid wasn't taken in the draft?

Everyone knows that the scouts and GMs and coaches NEVER miss on talented prospects in the draft.

There no way he could....imagine that.... START in the NFL one day....��
