Steelers LB Coach Joey Porter Present At Missouri Pro Day To See Charles Harris

Missouri is holding their annual pro day on Thursday and Pittsburgh Steelers linebackers coach Joey Porter is present for it to watch edge-rusher Charles Harris.

Update: Porter is currently meeting with linebackers Tanner Hull and Donavin Newsom as well.

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.
