03/26/17 - Missouri Pro day: He won't generate the same sort of attention as Thursday's skill position talent, but talented edge rusher Charles Harris certainly boosted his chances at earning a first-round selection. The 6-3, 253-pound Harris added 5 1/2 inches to the 32-inch vertical jump he posted in Indianapolis and was clocked at 7.05 seconds in the three-cone drill. Even better, his explosiveness and competitiveness were just as obvious during positional drills, which were run by a member of the Lions -- a club looking for a complement to former first-round pick Ziggy Ansah. The trademark burst that helped Harris record 16 sacks over the past two seasons against SEC completion was clear during pass rush drills, as was his balance and flexibility while running the arc. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
