One of several Florida players to go undrafted, former Gator center Jonotthan Harrison wasn’t a complete surprise to go undrafted, but that doesn’t mean he didn’t have the talents of more highly touted prospects.
Like Kerr, one of Harrison’s biggest strengths is his physical stature. At 6’3”, 304 pounds, Harrison has a solid frame, but his arm length (33 3/8”) is what pulls it all together. The combination allows him to both sit low and anchor the line as well as stay balanced and bent in pass protection against blitzers. For the latter, his awareness and vision also contributes. Then there are the intangibles: Harrison was a team leader with a strong work ethic, things that the Colts love as an organization.
Harrison’s overall mobility is lacking, and he likely won’t be able to move well in pulling plays and second-level blocks. That part, unfortunately, will be difficult in the Colts’ system, which calls for the interior line to move quite frequently.
But Harrison impressed Colts head coach Chuck Pagano at rookie minicamp nonetheless, according to The Herald Bulletin's George Bremer: "(Harrison is) a really smart guy, tough. From a technical standpoint, it looks like he's been well-coached. Bright guy, like I said. Really pleasant surprise, really pleasant surprise."
With the Colts’ overall lack of interior linemen (especially after cutting 2013 backup center Thomas Austin), Harrison has a real shot at making the roster and making a name for himself. Currently, Harrison is second on the Colts’ rough depth charts, just ahead of recently signed center out of Indiana State, FN Lutz.
