Prospect Profile: Chris Harrell
Full Name: Chris Harrell School: Penn State Pos: S Ht: 6-0.5 Wt: 209 40: 4.75 Year: 5Sr Bio: Three-year starter who missed the ‘04 season with a neck injury. Totaled 88/1/4 last year after 49 tackles as a true junior. Pos: Physical, run-defending safety best in the box. Reads then diagnoses the action, takes good angles to the play and has a burst of straight-line speed. Aggressive, goes for the knockout blow, yet is a solid tackler who wraps up at the point. Defeats blocks and easily brings opposing ball carriers down on initial contact. Neg: Lacks lateral speed, has marginal skills in coverage and does a lot of trailing in pass defense. Analysis: Possessing good size, football intelligence and a physical nature, Harrell is a solid strong safety. Late-round prospect with potential at the next level, assuming he passes medical exams prior to the draft.
