Player Overview

A two-star offensive guard recruit out of high school, Harrison had offers from Baylor and a few other schools, committing to Texas A&M and redshirting in 2010. He started four games at left guard as a redshirt freshman and became the full-time starter there in 2012 (13 starts) as a sophomore.

Harrison started all 13 games in 2013 as a junior, splitting time between left guard and left tackle. He missed the start of the 2014 season due to injury and started seven games as a senior, again splitting time between left guard and tackle. Harrison earned an invitation to the 2015 NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Thickly built with wide hips and strong bubble...carries his weight well with an athletic lower body and agile footwork to mirror in small spaces...bursts off the snap with the initial set-up quickness to get into position...absorbs contact well with active limbs, marrying his punch with his eyes...uses hand placement to latch-and-control, driving defenders away from the ball with core power...will sink his weight in his stance to anchor with leverage.

Consistent hustle and doesn't take plays off - finds ways to get the job done, even if it doesn't look pretty in the process...versatile experience and his on-field effectiveness didn't drop off when asked to kick out to left tackle - 37 career starts, 33 at left guard and four at left tackle.

WEAKNESSES: Has some sloppy weight on his frame and needs to improve his conditioning...has some hip tightness to quickly redirect...needs to consistently roll his hips on contact and not just rely on his upper body to get the job done...late to recover after he overextends or falls off blocks - waist-bending habits...will give up ground off the snap due to short sets and needs to improve his pre-snap recognition...not comfortable in space at the second level.

Streaky confidence and gets down on himself after mistakes...satisfied with his initial block and doesn't display the nasty playing temperament to be a mauling finisher...soft spoken and still has growing up to do...unreliable habits and work ethic with questionable football passion - was late to his own pro day workout...lost his starting job to begin the 2014 season due to poor conditioning following rehab from injury...durability concerns after a calf issue (Jan. 2014) multiple shoulder surgeries.

IN OUR VIEW: A basketball player growing up, Harrison didn't focus on football until his junior season in high school and was a late bloomer, but quickly made a positive impression in College Station, showing significant strides each season. He was the band aid of the Aggies' offensive line, primarily lining up at left guard, but also kicking out to left tackle when needed, pushing Cedric Ogbuehi to right tackle in 2014.

Harrison has starting potential in the NFL with top-75 talent, but the questionable football character and desire to reach his full potential will drop him down draft boards - day three prospect, but if a coaching staff can light a fire under his butt and get him to buy in, Harrison will end up being a steal.
