Being a standout from the Ohio State Buckeyes is already going to garner someone several looks, but racking up a total of 75 tackles with 4.5 sacks and four pass breakups isn’t going to lessen the interest any, especially when that prospect plays in one of college football’s most historic programs and in one of its best conferences.
Malik Harrison is six-foot-two, and he tips the scales at 246 pounds.
He may not be around past the third round of April’s draft, but if Philly gets lucky and he slides, he may be a nice option for that spot that’s been left vacant by the departure of Nigel Bradham. In NFL.com’s draft profile on him, Lance Zierlein compares him to K.J. Wright.
In Indianapolis, during the most recent NFL Combine, Harrison ran the 40-yard dash in 4.66 seconds before showcasing a 36-inch vertical and a mark of 122 inches in the broad jump. He followed that with marks of 6.83 seconds and 4.32 seconds in the three-cone drill and in the 20-yard shuffle respectively. He’s one of this year’s prospects’ most gifted athletes regardless of position.
