Draft Scout Dwayne Harris News
01/11/13 - WR Dwayne Harris was a late-season bright spot and showed plenty of upside for the future.
12/12/12 - WR Dwayne Harris has not only emerged as the primary punt returner but he is also the new third receiver, surpassing Kevin Ogletree. If Dez Bryant is sidelined with a fractured finger, Harris will have an even bigger role. In the past four games, Harris has his first 11 career catches, for 135 yards. "The coaches are starting to trust me more," Harris said. "I think just due to what I'm doing at practice, going out, getting plays, getting more confident with Tony (Romo) throwing me the ball, just doing my job."
12/11/12 - WR Dwayne Harris has emerged as the third receiver, surpassing Kevin Ogletree on merit, according to coach Jason Garrett.
11/18/12 - WR Dwayne Harris keyed the Cowboys victory against the Browns with a 21-yard punt return to set up the game-winning field goal in overtime. It was his third straight game with a punt return of at least 20 yards.
11/14/12 - WR Dwayne Harris was named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week after ripping off a 78-yard punt return for a touchdown against the Eagles. It was the second game with a big return by Harris since replacing Dez Bryant as the primary punt returner.
"I think Dwayne is just getting better and better as a player," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. "I think that shows up in the opportunities he's gotten in the kicking game. He's just making returns. He's always been very solid with the ball in his hands. He can catch the ball. He's strong running the ball. He's made some big plays for us the last couple of weeks. He gave us good field position and obviously has scored a touchdown for us in the kicking game, and we have a lot of confidence in him as a receiver as well. He's grown and grown every day. He's taken advantage of his practice reps whenever he gets a chance in the game."
