Though he cut down on interceptions last season (at least until the season finale), Kiper said Jacory Harris will not be drafted. Harris believes otherwise.
“I expect to be drafted,” he said. “But I won’t be down if I don’t.”
Besides being invited to the Combine to audition, Harris also was asked to be a “throwing quarterback” – in other words, throwing to other skill position players during their auditions. T.J. Yates handled those duties at last year’s Combine and ended up starting in Houston last season after injuries to Matt Schaub and Matt Leinart.
“T.J. Yates gives me inspiration,” Harris said. “It’s an extra opportunity to showcase myself.”
Harris has been working with Carolina Panthers and former Canes tight end Greg Olsen and former Detroit Lions quarterback Drew Stanton.
Asked what he needs to improve to make an NFL roster, Harris said, “Most people say decision-making, but a lot of football people say don’t worry about it. Those things will take care of themselves.”
