Default How ironic, he grew up in Pittsburg, CA- Welcome Ra'Shon Harris

Ra'Shon Harris (DT)
Height: 6'4"
Weight: 298
College: Oregon
Conference: Pac 10
Hometown: Pittsburg, CA
High School: Pittsburg

Combine Results:
40 Yard Dash : 5.05 seconds
Bench Press : 28.0 reps
Vertical Jump : 25.5 inches
Broad Jump : 106.0 inches
3 Cone Drill : 8.18 seconds
20 Yard Shuttle : 4.87 seconds

Overview

Harris only produced three tackles in his first two seasons in Eugene, but the light started to come on during his junior season. He then stepped up his game as a first-year starter in 2008, making 47 tackles, nine tackles for loss and sacking the opponents' quarterback three times. His ability to take up blockers made everyone on the line more effective. His potential as a interior presence could get him drafted.

High School

High School (Coach): Pittsburg (Sly Hunter) 2004. ... Rated among the top 50 prep prospects in California by SuperPrep magazine as well as one of the best 11 defensive linemen in the state. ... Two-time all-Bay Valley League defender possessed the proficiency to force opponents to devise game plans around him. ... Two-time all-area honoree (Contra Costa Times) and Tacoma News Tribune Western 100 pick led the league in quarterback sacks (five) in addition to forcing one fumble and recovering another. ... Completed his prep career with 15 quarterback sacks.

Analysis

Positives: Tall with good build and length inside. ... Fair straight-ahead speed when closing on the ball. ... Stands up his man and falls off to wrap up backs coming through the hole. ... Anchors well to hold up double-team blocks. ... Gets great push to collapse the pocket in passing situations, keeps his arms extended and legs churning. ... Threat to impact passing lanes and block field goals using his push, height and length. ... Big in the weight room.

Negatives: One-year starter. ... A bit soft in the middle. ... Offensive linemen use his height to their advantage, cutting him down like a tree although he is adequate recovering. ... Slow off the snap and takes time to get his body going forward. ... Plays with his head down at times, minimizing his awareness. ... Needs a stronger punch. ... Inconsistent in his push and hustle. ... Does not change direction quickly, will get ridden out of plays too easily. ... Inconsistent shedding blocks inside even if much bigger than his opponent. ... Stamina and work ethic are issues. ... Missed first half of the 2006 season with a torn triceps muscle.

like that they try to add a 2nd DL. Although with the history of late round picks at DL he faces unfavorable odds

This guy was sought after by a few 3-4 teams, Pats included. Any other year he would have been a UDFA for us, goes to show what the team thought of him to draft him.

He'll stick, at the least on the PS.
