Draft Scout Connor Harris News
12/20/17 - LB Connor Harris, a free agent, was signed to the practice squad on Wednesday. Harris, a rookie, signed as a college free agent with the New York Jets this season and was waived in the cut to 53.

01/25/17 - 2017 SENIOR BOWL, TUESDAY: One player to take advantage of the inaccuracy from the quarterbacks was Lindenwood linebacker Connor Harris, who stepped in front of a late throw to the left sideline from Liufau to intercept a pass and return it for a pick-six. Frankly, Harris needed to remind skeptical scouts in the stands of his instincts and playmaking ability after he looked out of place alongside the imposing athletes from Power Five schools during the weigh-ins. Harris measured in at a blocky 5-foot-11, 241 pounds, drawing some raised eye-brows from scouts. Making plays is something that Harris has certainly shown throughout his spectacular career for the Division II Eagles, as his NCAA record 633 career tackles can attest. - Rob Rang & Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
