Lions' Will Harris: Tallies first career sack
Wilson totaled four tackles, one sack and one pass breakup in Week 17 against Green Bay.
Apparently saving his best for last, Harris had a productive game that included a huge third-down sack of quarterback Aaron Rodgers that forced a Green Bay punt. In turn, the third-round rookie will finish his first professional season with 43 tackles, one sack and three PBUs in 16 games. With Tavon Wilson set to become an unrestricted free agent, it's possible Harris could open the 2020 campaign as a clear-cut starter next to Tracy Walker. However, there's a good chance Detroit re-signs Wilson this offseason despite the soon-to-be 30-year-old's advanced age, which would probably limit Harris' upside even if the youngster secures a starting role.

Lions' Will Harris: Going to Detroit
The Lions selected Harris in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 81st overall.
Harris didn't hold an especially big presence in the box score at Boston College, but he started the last two years and was a top contributor on a defense that fared very well against the pass. At 6-foot-1, 207 pounds with a 4.41-second 40-yard dash, 36.5-inch vertical, and 123-inch broad jump, Harris has plenty of tools to work with, too. He'll likely compete with Tracy Walker for the chance to start next to Quandre Diggs at safety. He'll be worth monitoring as an IDP if he can win that starting role.
