Atlanta Falcons: Three college players Atlanta should scout this weekend
3. Christian Harris
Christian Harris projects to be a top-fifteen pick one that is likely to be on the board when Atlanta makes their selection. Rattler and Leal are options for Atlanta if they fail to improve from week one. If they do improve and managed to win some games this season it may be Harris that becomes the most viable option.
Getting Deion Jones a running mate in Harris would anchor the Atlanta defense and be a great step in their defensive rebuild. The Alabama backer plays from sideline to sideline and has no problem delivering bone-shattering hits.
What makes Harris a great prospect also makes him hard to scout. He is in an Alabama system that elevates all of its athletes they are going to dominate the opponent and Harris benefits from this.
He will be prepared for the next level by Nick Saban but is his draft status elevated by his team’s performance? That is a question only watching him specifically will answer and that starts this week against the Florida Gators. How will Harris look against his first real test this season?
It is a game that could be the toughest regular-season test for Harris and certainly an interesting matchup for Falcons country.
