Interior Offensive Line
Weight: 293 lbs.
Nick Harris is an undersized yet athletic offensive lineman who’s made a name for himself by keeping the quarterback upright through sound technique and position. As a center, he’s experienced with calling out protections, though he could likely slide to either guard position in the NFL. He can run block, and he has the quickness to pass protect, as well.

However, Harris’ lack of size, power and length is a clear limitation of his upside. He may get overpowered by bigger and stronger nose tackles in the NFL, and he’ll have to refine his technique further to have a long career.
Why he may fit with Washington:
It never hurts to add depth on the offensive line, and while starting center Chase Roullier is still a year from unrestricted free agency, Harris could be slide into one of the guard positions until then. Granted, this would be a bit of a luxury pick in the third round, but it’s at least something for the team to consider since it’s impossible to know what the draft board will look on Day 2. A strong interior offensive line will help keep quarterback Dwayne Haskins comfortable, and Harris could certainly provide strength there.
Nick Harris projects as an NFL starter on the interior of the offensive line, and while he may not be an obvious fit in Washington, it’s worth watching where he’ll land, as he should carve out a nice, long career at the next level.
Projected Round: 2nd/3rd
