Draft Scout *Brandon Harris News
01/08/13 - CB Brandon Harris, a second-round pick last year, has more experience coming off the bench and covering slot receivers than he did in the first New England game. Harris allowed a touchdown catch. He also committed a penalty after the Texans stopped the Patriots on third down, and New England continued on to score a touchdown. Harris has to play better in coverage.
12/16/12 - CB Brandon Harris was the nickel corner in the last two games in place of the injured Brice McCain. As the slot corner, he covered Wes Welker and Reggie Wayne the last two games. Welker had three catches but dropped a few. Wayne had three receptions for 14 yards and no drops. Harris continues to improve.
12/12/12 - CB Brandon Harris, who was a second-round pick last year, is the nickel corner who covers the slot receiver in Brice McCain's absence. McCain was outstanding covering inside receivers before he suffered a fractured foot and was placed on injured reserve. Harris was drafted to play in the slot, and it was a rough baptism in the last two games. He's been beaten repeatedly, and he's committed too many penalties.
12/02/12 - CB Brandon Harris was drafted in the second round in 2011 because Brice McCain struggled down the stretch in 2010 and was an unknown commodity entering last season. But under new defensive coordinator Wade Phillips and new secondary coach Vance Joseph, McCain thrived as the nickel corner covering the slot receiver last season. Harris spent most of his rookie year on the inactive list. In training camp and preseason this year, he was the defense's most improved player. Now that McCain is out with a foot injury, Harris is going to get more playing time. In the 24-10 victory at Tennessee, Harris came off the bench to replace the injured McCain and led the team with six tackles and two passes defensed.
11/28/12 - CB Brandon Harris was fined $21,000 by the league for his hit on Detroit PR Stefan Logan. Harris was penalized when he hit Logan. The officials -- and the league -- ruled that Harris was defenseless at the time of the hit.
