Browns Hosting Pair of Miami Cornerbacks for Workouts

New, comments

According to the National Football Post, the Cleveland Browns are hosting a pair of cornerbacks from Miami for private workouts today. One of those cornerbacks is DeMarcus Van Dyke, who ran an impressive 4.28 40-time. His visit has been known about since early March.

The cornerback we didn't know about was Brandon Harris, who is projected to be a late first-round or early second-round pick. Both cornerbacks reportedly had dinner with a defensive backs coach on the Browns Thursday night.

Here is what Mocking the Draft has to say about Harris:

For good and bad, Harris has skills that cannot be coached. His short area play is great he's incredibly instinctual for a early entrant. The bad trait that can't be helped is his height. Because of his size, some teams may only view Harris as a nickel cornerback in man coverage schemes. Still, he's relentless and remains confident against bigger receivers.

On a zone team, Harris will have to be given some time to learn. As instinctual as Harris is, you'd expect him to be more comfortable when he has to cover a wide area in zone. Instead, he'll need safety help over the top. It also doesn't help that Harris' hands are lacking. Still, he has the agility and playing ability of a first-round pick.
