Draft Watch – Basketball Player?

Demetrius Harris played basketball for the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, but is now hoping for a shot at the NFL. He played WR in high school, but would now be more of a TE.

Harris is 6-5, 237.  He had a good workout for NFL teams.

Harris’ gifts are obvious in physical testing. He has run the 40-yard dash in 4.52 seconds with a 10-2 broad jump and a 36 1/2 inch vertical leap. Strength is something that needs work, bench pressing 225 pounds twice. However, strength can be improved. It’s rare to be that big, fast and explosive.

“I’ll be hitting the weights hard wherever I wind up,” Harris said. “I’ve only been lifting weights since last year, so it’s something I’m working on.”

Per Aaron Wilson, the Eagles have already worked him out.  Harris would be a late round pick or priority FA. Could be a good fit in the Chip Kelly offense. Clearly would need some time to develop, though.
