Harris, who measured in at this year’s scouting combine at 6026, 253-pounds, ran the 40-yard-dash in Indianapolis in 4.82 seconds. He did 21 reps on the bench and posted a short shuttle time of 4.42 seconds and a 3-cone time of 7.47 seconds.
In the 37 games that Harris played in at Missouri Harris registered 136 total tackles, 18 sacks, 5 forced fumbles and 5 pass breakups. 9 of his sacks came last season.
The Steelers are likely to select an edge rusher early in this year’s draft and Harris figures to be a player who will ultimately wind up being selected in either the first 40 picks and some analysts speculate he’ll come off the board within the first 20 selections.
