Sweet mother of pearl, just saw a highlight video of this kid and he can ball. What are people's opinion about him? He looks small but that doesn't scare me at all. What round is he projected to go?

Good return man and screen man. Maybe a Dexter McCluster type if used sporadically. Wouldn't mind if the team drafts him late. Say 6th or 7th round. Take over the return game for Harris.

I second this question. Harris as a return man and special teamer was an impact player for us.

Harris rite now is the #3 guy as far as WR's. As it sits rite now, Harris seems like he will be used more on the offensive side of the ball. Having him return kicks full time will only add to him getting injured. As a guy who will be called upon more on offense I would want to reduce his chance of injury by having him return kicks. Allows him to focus more on offense as well.

I'm not saying Harris isn't a good return guy. Just would want him to focus more on offense and reduce his chance of injury. Keep him fresher as well.

We probably would have lost 2 more games last year if not for Harris' work on special teams. He's JAG at receiver. I'd be far more inclined to draft someone that can take over his WR duties than his ST duties.

This. Harris caught 9 balls last yr and was targeted a whooping 14 times. He has little to no value as a WR. Outside of Bailey, Harris was far and away the MVP of special teams.

Just saying this team has six 7th round draft picks. I do believe Archer is a better return guy than Harris and is faster as well. If Harris is JAG then it also saves the team from having to re-sign him seeing as the team just drafted his replacement on special teams.

I think Harris will also be more productive at WR if the team allowed him to focus on his WR duties.

Take play makers and find a way to make them work after the 5th in my books. Guys like Howard Jones, Nikata Whitlock, Dri Archer have a place just need to find it for them. Cowboys issue is we like to do that in the second and 3rd............

He's not a JAG in his role, he's an impact player. He's a JAG in the role you want to put him in. Would be a shame to let him walk.

An I said Archer can possibly have a bigger impact than Harris in the return game. Can be used how the Chiefs use McCluster, in the slot an on screens an gimmick plays. (Reverses and such) an it saves the team money from having to resign Harris in the future.

You think Archer would be a top ~5 return man in the NFL?

He's not bad, but he's not going to be a guy who can get more than 6-8 touches per game. Definitely would bring a new element to this offense though, so I'd consider him with one of our 7ths.
