2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Dwayne Harris, WR, East Carolina
By the time he was an upperclassman, Harris was earning all-conference accolades. The 2009 season was a very special one for Harris. On top of his amazing 83 catches for 978 yards and seven touchdowns, he returned 37 kick-offs for a smooth 1,000 yards and three more scores.
Harris is generously listed at 6-0 and his lack of size will be an issue come draft time. However, Harris has proven to be a very productive player and should be a fine third or fourth wide receiver on most teams and a dynamic returnman from day one. Without the threat of being a top receiver, Harris' stock is not too high, but he should be a solid third or fourth round selection.
3/27 Update: Harris' pre-draft workouts have not gone well. During the week of practice for the Senior Bowl, Harris was not as explosive as many had expected and he dropped way, way too many passes. Harris then followed up that performance by running a 4.53 40-yard-dash at the NFL combine. Harris is not a speedster, but for a player who measured in at just over 5-10, he needs to be faster. Harris is very elusive, but he has to be able to get open and catch the ball before that skill becomes necessary. At this point, Harris' stock has dropped to the later rounds.
