The Latest Scoop from Ed Thompson
Harris told Scout.com that he had formal interviews with the Cleveland Browns, Atlanta Falcons, New England Patriots, Oakland Raiders, Philadelphia Eagles, San Diego Chargers and St. Louis Rams during the NFL Combine. At his Pro Day this week on March 10, he plans to run the 40-yard dash and participate in position drills.

What He Recently Told Scout.com
"What I want to show during Pro Day is that my 40 at the Combine was not reflective of how I play, so I want to improve in that area. And I want to show through the position drills that I can play wherever a team wants to put me on the field.

"It feels pretty good to be back in Norman. I've been getting a warm welcome and I'm ready to go to work."
