Jarvis Harrison NFL Draft 2015: Scouting Report, Grade for Jets Rookie

B/R Video@@bleacherreportB/R VideoMay 2, 2015



A former star prep basketball player, Jarvis Harrison is a three-year starter with the lateral quickness and size to step in and contribute right away in the NFL. Harrison wows with technique, and he understands leverage and angles while showing good hand placement in the pass and run games. He’s controlled, patient and balanced on the move or when asked to hold his ground. Harrison was an accurate puncher for A&M and was often asked to play in space due to the Aggies' spread-out schemes.


Harrison struggled early in 2014 after undergoing shoulder surgery in the offseason and sat out the first two games of the year because his conditioning wasn’t up to par. He’s stout enough to sit down on bull rushes and not lose ground but is too often pushed back and bent back by power-rushers. Harrison doesn’t always play with fire or strength and could stand to be more aggressive firing off the ball. Expect to hear that Harrison loves basketball more than football, as that came up often in our talks with scouts.

PRO PLAYER COMPARISON: John Greco, Cleveland Browns

Big, strong, burly offensive guards who are well-versed in pass protection and the run game, Harrison and John Greco are very similar.

FINAL GRADE: 5.50/9.00 (Future Starter)
