2022 NFL Draft Profile: Kevin Harris


Kevin Harris is a full grown man and he knows it, he punishes tacklers and is an extremely physical runner.  He loves contact and is someone that can definitely close out a game in the 4th quarter.  His 2021 tape was not as good as his 2020 tape coming off a back surgery where he missed a lot of practice in the spring.  Lance Zuerlien talked on the move the sticks podcasts about not forgetting how good his 2020 tape was and anyone that can run that well in the SEC needs to be noticed, grade the flashes and he has a lot of them.  South Carolina had a subpar offensive line and Harris was forced to create a lot on his own.  This is very difficult, especially in the SEC and Harris was up to the task.  Harris averaged 6.2 yards a carry and had 15 touchdowns in 2020.  His production was way down in 2021 with 4.3 a carry and only 4 touchdowns.  If he can stay healthy and get back to his 2020 form, he will be a steal on day 3 and his stock has continued to rise throughout the draft process.

Player Comparison:

Chris Carson


4th round ADP or UDFA in Superflex, Someone I think will rise up draft boards after draft day.  A lot of draft-nicks are talking him up and the public has not caught on yet.  Project 2nd-3rd round value depending on landing spot and draft capital.
